Most of us know Prince Edward County for its wine, but there is so much more to enjoy in this beautiful area of Ontario. Take a look at some other wonderful things that Prince Edward County has to offer!
Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park
This natural wonder has made everyone question “how?” for ages! While there are a few geological explanations for the lake’s formation, how the water continues to exist there is a mystery, as there is no known water source. It has become a sacred place of spiritual significance and respect for all who visit. With stunning views of a County sunset, you’re sure to enjoy an afternoon at this provincial park.
