Reconnect with Your Family at Keji National Park! There are many sides to Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site: Lush old growth forests grow inland, bordering the shores of warm-water lakes, perfect for canoeing.   Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct is a separate landscape with colourful granite cobblestones and white-sand beaches.  Kejimikujik teaches us to reconnect with nature, and also teaches us about the Mi’kmaw, through story and legend. Most importantly, a weekend at Keji can help you reconnect with those you love the most: your family.
