Owner description: While a simple beach on Lake Ontario, it is right next to CFB Picton Training area where in the 1950's, models of the Avro Arrow were launched to test wing shapes.

We visited this spot for a picnic and a swim after seeing some sights around Prince Edward County and it was terrific. Warm, clear water for swimming and many flat sheets of rock to set up on for picnics and sunbathing. A wonderful spot...just remember to bring some shoes or water socks for the rocky bottom.

Quiet, tranquil and a little piece of heaven! Whenever we have an afternoon off we go here to relax, bring your water shoes!

A natural setting for those looking for peace and quiet;
a place to explore untouched natural landscape.

Rocky shoreline; proper foot attire suggested as the area rocks can become slick.
Can swim here but not a sandy beach; rocky beach.

NOTE:
Roads leading into this area are UNPAVED; back roads
— newer vehicles take note. It a very bumpy ride in.
Plenty of shrubs and bush to bypass before arriving at shoreline.
About 5 minutes off main road.

No washroom facilities.
No concession stands.
Bring your own drinks and food items;
No garbage bins found in areas we frequented.
So, you'll be taking your garbage back home for proper disposal :)
