Bring your canoe

LOCATION: Lunenburg to Kejimkujik National
We stayed at Jeremy’s Bay Campground, (no services), but natural campsites with lots of trees and quiet. The Mi’maq were the original inhabitants of this area. Kejimkuji (Keji) is the first national park of Canada designated a national historic site, which is based on the Mi’maq heritage.
On our first hike, the Slapstick Trail, we came across a white tailed deer just walking along, I don’t think I have ever seen a deer with a tail. We took this trail out to Jake’s Landing and rented kayaks. This area is best seen from a canoe or kayak. It was a beautiful day and lots of people were out and about after, all the rain we have had. We enjoyed our paddle and the sunshine.
Many of the walking trails are also biking trails. We walked back to Jim Charles wooded camp area, and passed the beaches along the way. Kayaking or canoeing are probably the best way to explore Keji.

Hi! It is great to see others who really LOVE Kejimkujik. I have been going there since I was a child...and still go today with my own son. The trail you were walking down when you met the deer was slapfoot trail. This, of course, is one of many beautiful trails that Keji has to offer. If you haven't done the Hemlock and Hardwoods is a must see! JoAnne

My dad made those kayaks! He's made three himself now, and he's currently working on his fourth. :)
