Backcountry adventures are easier and closer than you imagine
Novice or advanced, on a day-trip or overnight, Kejimkujik’s backcountry beckons.
Trek into Channel Lake Trail’s glacier-carved landscape, or through the large-toothed aspen, red oak and white birch of Big Dam/Frozen Ocean Trail. Park classic Liberty Lake Trail puts you among white pines and woodpeckers all the way to the most remote campground and back again—a four-day adventure.
Paddling is another quintessential Kejimkujik experience, from the traditions of the Mi’kmaw on to you. Dark waters lined with cranberry bushes on Big Dam/Frozen Ocean, expansive and portage-free Kejimkujik Lake and the multi-day Peskowesk Lake System all draw in paddlers throughout summer and fall.
On land, mushrooms grow underfoot, deer and bobcat hide in the hardwoods and warblers flutter overhead.
On the water, Blanding’s turtles tuck away on the shoreline, brook trout and perch swim below and bullfrogs croak from the reeds.
Immerse in a true wilderness that’s serene and remote yet easily reached.
