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.


Opening and Closing Dates

All campground facilities are open from Victoria Day weekend in May to Thanksgiving in October.


Facilities

Washrooms

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.

Showers

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

Playgrounds are located by most washroom buildings and within the campground loops.

Amphitheatre

In the summer, during evenings, take a short walk from your campsite to Keji’s Amphitheatre. Check the activity schedule to see what evenings the amphitheatre comes alive with images, music, and drama.

Sky Circle

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.

Fire Circle

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 activity schedule to find out about program times.

Internet Access

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.

Firewood

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

Parking

Additional parking is available for visitors and for campers who are bringing more than one vehicle per campsite.

Sorting Stations

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.

Dumping Station

The dumping station provides waste disposal and water fill-up for recreational vehicles.

Swimming

Meadow Beach, Slapfoot Beach and Kedge Beach offer excellent unsupervised swimming. They are close to the campsites, connected by the Slapfoot Trail, and have beautiful views of Kejimkujik Lake. Merrymakedge Beach is supervised daily in July and August from 10 am to 6 pm.
