Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

Kejimkujik, Kejimkujik Seaside re-opening after post-tropical storm Lee

Issued: September 19, 2023

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, including Kejimkujik Seaside, will reopen Wednesday, September 20 at 2 pm

Power and utilities are restored and we will begin welcoming day-use visitors and campers as of 2 pm Wednesday.


Most existing camping reservations (front- and backcountry) will continue unaffected; no action is required on the part of reservation holders. Staff will be contacting a few backcountry reservation holders directly to modify or refund their reservations.


Kejimkujik Seaside will reopen Wednesday at 2 pm, including the main Harbour Rocks trail and pit privies. The Port Joli Head Trail remains closed until further notice, due to more extensive damage. The trailhead washroom building also remains closed.

We thank Parks Canada and Nova Scotia Power staff for their hard work managing this closure, clean-up and restoration operation. We thank visitors in advance for kindness when they encounter staff in the coming days. We are doing our best for you.

Visitor safety is of the utmost importance for Parks Canada. Parks Canada reminds visitors to be alert to potential risks from storm damage. If a visitor sees a hanging or dangerous tree, they are asked to report it to staff.
