Kejimkujik, situated in Maitland Bridge in the Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley region is the only inland national park in the Maritimes. Visitors will find historic canoe routes, portages and many beautiful hiking trails in the park. The park is 381 km² with abundant lakes and rivers ideal for canoeing and kayaking – the best in Eastern Canada. The park’s lush woodlands and gently rolling landscapes are home to a variety of wildlife. Park interpretive staff leads outings on foot, by canoe or on bikes; some children's programs are also available.
There is a trail here for everyone. Wander through groves of 300-year-old hemlock trees, follow a trail to an abandoned gold mine, or visit an overgrown farm. The main park's 15 day-walking trails range from short riverside strolls and hiking trails from 0.5 to 6 km in length (some with interpretive panels) to long-distance hiking trails to remote regions of the park, with wilderness campsites.
During the summer months, relax on Merrymakedge Beach, or swim in the warm waters of Kejimkujik Lake. Swimmers can choose a sandy beach or one of many lakes along the trails and canoe routes. The best way to experience Kejimkujik is by staying overnight, whether you prefer to camp in a tent, trailer, yurt, cabin, or oTENTik, (a cross between a tent and a rustic cabin), close to amenities and electric sites, or to travel to a wilderness site in the backcountry. Entry fee is charged May to Oct.
