Reservations for camping in Jeremys Bay can be made beginning April 16, 2015 through the Parks Canada Campground Reservation Service by phoning 1-877-RESERVE (8 am to 6 pm) or online at www.reservation.parkscanada.gc.ca.
A reservation fee is charged per reservation, and cancellation and modification fees may also apply. Camping fees are charged per site for each night of your stay.
All campground facilities are open from Victoria Day weekend in May to Thanksgiving in October.
Washrooms are complete with flush toilets, indoor sinks, outdoor sinks for dishwashing, and outdoor water taps. Tap water is tested regularly to ensure it is safe for drinking.
The shower building provides free showers in a central location. Water is pre-heated by solar panels, part of Kejimkujik's efforts to reduce energy consumption.
Playgrounds are located by most washroom buildings and within the campground loops.
In the summer, during evenings, take a short walk from your campsite to Keji’s Amphitheatre. Check the interpretation schedule to see what evenings the amphitheatre comes alive with images, music, and drama.
The focal point of Keji’s Dark Sky Preserve activities is the Sky Circle. Located off of P1 in the campground, it is handy for that late-night walk back to the campsite when the Dark Sky program is done.
Do you like to share your campfire with others? The Fire Circle is the ideal place to come and sing, tell stories, and share your adventures in Keji with other visitors. The Circle is near the Amphitheatre in P1. Consult the interpretation schedule to find out about program times.
Near the shower building is the Internet station where you can bring your laptop and hook up to the Internet or access Keji's wireless network.
All sites have a firepit. Do not leave your fire unattended. Firewood is for sale at the campground kiosk. Buying and burning local firewood only is encouraged to help control the spread of invasive species (i.e. Fire ants, etc.) Learn more about the dangers of moving firewood
Additional parking is available for visitors and for campers who are bringing more than one vehicle per campsite.
Good stewardship does not just apply at home! Nova Scotia law requires waste to be sorted before disposal. At Keji, proper waste sorting will assist in recycling efforts, keep nuisance animals away, and leave your site in good shape for the campers who follow you. Sorting stations are located throughout Keji.
Please make sure that no wildlife attractants are ever left unattended at any sites in the campground. To avoid visits from unwanted critters, please store all unattended food items (including coolers) in your vehicle. For your safety, Parks Canada staff may seize unattended animal attractants. These measures are in place for your safety, and to help keep the wildlife in our National Parks alive and wild.
The dumping station provides waste disposal and water fill-up for recreational vehicles.
Meadow Beach, Slapfoot Beach and Merrymakedge Beach offer excellent unsupervised swimming. They are close to the campsites, connected by the Slapfoot Trail, and have beautiful views of Kejimkujik Lake. Kedge Beach is supervised daily in July and August from 10 am to 6 pm.
