Jun 22, 2015 - Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia

One of our favourite stops in the Maritimes. Although the Maritimes were a highlight reel of places, Keji was without a doubt a fantastic visit. We spent our days hiking, taking part in National Aboriginal Day and just simply taking in the splendour of such a magnificent park. I must also note that the staff of Kejimkujik National Park were outstandingly friendly and helpful. They really helped make the experience what it was.

Jul 19, 2009 - Exploring Nova Scotia

Today’s theme was “Back to Nature!” We spent the morning hanging around the campground. It was VERY foggy this morning! Late morning was low tide, so we walked down by the water searching for tide pools with critters in them. We did find some tide pools, but the only critters were snails. Not too exciting to watch!!! The “beach” is all rocky and near the water the rocks were very slippery. We took Saint down there and he had trouble getting his footing on the rocks. After lunch we decided to drive to Kejimkujik National Park. We are not...

It was also a place to park the two RV’s as there is there are no facilities in town...

Aug 21, 2008 - Kejimkujik National Park

We started the day back in Bear River to visit the First Nations Cultural Centre. It was a good introduction to Mi'kmac history and culture. At Kejimkujik National Park, called Keji for short, we hiked three trails: one along the Mersey River, another above the river and around a drumlin, and the last to see remains of gold mines. At 6:00pm we joined a guided tour of the Mi'kmac petroglyphs, which are in a restricted area. We had to take off our shoes and socks to avoid damaging the drawings. Unfortunately, decades of graffiti have invaded...

Maritimes 2008

Aug 14, 2006 - Kejimkujik National Park, NS

Camped in the national park with a view to doing some hiking along the waterways of Keji the following day. However when we woke up the next morning (with heavy heads after a few beers with our neighbours last night), it was to ominous black clouds and the sound of thunder. After umming & arring we erred on the side of caution and went for plan B so we packed up the tent and left for the east coast. Just as we hopped in the car it absolutely bucketed down justifying our decision. The previous evening, when we'd gone to pick up supplies, a...
