Situated in the heart of Nova Scotia, Kejimkujik National Park encompasses 147 square miles of forest, wildlife, and waterways. Mountains, highlands, rivers, lakes, and beaches characterize the terrain, and the region enjoys a temperate climate. A mixed forest of hardwood and softwood predominates with some old growth stands of hemlock, white pine, and sugar maple.
