About East Kemptville

The hamlet of East Kemptville (by Kemptville) is so named after one General Sir James Kempt - lieutenant Governor of the area - who put out a fire here in the 1820’s. It is situated on the Tusket river in the Yarmouth and Acadian shores region of Nova Scotia and is part of the Tobeatic wilderness - a huge protected landscape and refuge for all kinds of wildlife. The best places to stay in East Kemptville cater for those wanting to ‘get away from it all’.

Locally, this has been a mining area, but aside from this and logging activity the Kemptville region is primarily an ‘eco-destination’. It is also popular for sport fishing - with its numerous lakes and rivers - and hunting.
