Generations of families have paddled, hiked, camped, and connected with nature and with Mi’kmaw culture at Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. Kejimkujik has the honour of being the only National Park that has both designations.

When the sun sets, the skies over Kejimkujik reveal a beautiful panorama of tens of thousands of stars in Nova Scotia’s only Dark-Sky Preserve. Kejimkujik’s wilderness trails offer hiking and biking opportunities while interconnected waterways provide some of the finest canoeing in Atlantic Canada – perfect for the beginner or seasoned paddler.

Rock engravings known as petroglyphs, traditional encampment areas, and ancient canoe routes attest to the presence of the Mi’kmaw people for thousands of years enabling visitors to discover a cultural landscape.
