With so little light pollution, storied Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site—a designated Dark Sky Preserve—is a perfect spot to pitch your tent for a summer break. By day, paddle through the park’s still, reflective waterways then laze on its white sandy beaches. Once the sun goes down, gather around the campfire and cast your eyes up to the skies for an astronomical extravaganza of stars, planets, galaxies and constellations.
