Yurt Backcountry Camping at Kejimkujik National Park

The big camping experience last winter was spending a night in a yurt at Kejimkujik National Park. The only problem was finding an open weekend to book one of the two Yurts at the park. With time running out, we booked a single overnight in late March at the Eel Weir Yurt.

Being in the off-season, the road was gated at the Grafton Woods parking lot. This meant an 8km walk-in to reach the Eel Weir site. Add another 6km to reach the new Yurt site at Pesowesk.

However, with the mild winter and very warm March, the snow had melted and the road in dry and made for good walking. The additional benefit was that you had to haul less items like clothing in your pack.
