Re: Prince Edward County (Lake Ontario)
I am very biased towards Waupoos - as we always make it a point to stop there. It is an ideal location for lake sailing and access to Main duck, 1,000 islands, Kingston etc. Very friendly place (local guy told me to help myself to his truck if I needed it) and you can swim in the water right at the marina (make sure there are no stray electrical currents). A very interesting place to walk around and look at old boats, cannery stuff etc. and a great little restaurant and cheese place. Am seriously considering moving our boat there (over Cobourg) when we retire down east. Oh and the Waupoos Winery just down the road is great!
Prince Edward we have stayed at and it is friendly and, of course, walking distance to downtown Picton. However, it seems to always be a long way into that bay and it is very narrow and cramped in there. Fairways are narrow as well. It can also be very HOT with no wind (unlike Waupoos) and a lot of algae. It is a bit of a hike down Aldolphus Reach out to the big water of the lake and sailing in the area tends to be very gusty from variable directions (our experience).
Hope this helps
