Canadian Forces Base Picton (CFB Picton) was a military installation located on a high plateau overlooking Picton, Ontario. The base was active from the Second World War to 1969 and served the Royal Air Force, Royal Canadian Air Force and Canadian Army. Today the site functions as the Picton Airport and Loch Sloy Industrial Park. The base and Point Petre (bombing & artillery range) were also used to film Dieppe (1993) a TV movie by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CFB_Picton
There is an abundance of lakes, bays, and other suitable areas that offer opportunities for canoeing and kayaking. Sea kayakers and canoeists have over 800 km of coastline to explore. Much of it is sheltered from Lake Ontario. With three provincial parks and fourteen conservation areas, hikers and campers all have great areas to explore. Canoeing & Kayaking on West Lake This lake is a very enjoyable, pleasant and scenic paddle. The most pleasant is along the dunes. Paddlers should be aware that this lake becomes very busy in the summer with speedboats and personal watercraft. Canoeing and Kayaking on the Black River, Milford Meandering its way for six kilometres from the village of Milford to Prince Edward Bay, the Black River is a pleasant paddle, whether by canoe or kayak. For much of the way, the route is remote, passing through areas of forest and farm pasture fields where horses and cattle may be seen pasturing.

Carrying Place is a community that serves as the gateway to Prince Edward County. Situated just south of Trenton, it was named for its location on the portage between the Bay of Quinte and Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario. The Loyalist Parkway passes through the community. Carrying Place is home to the Department of National Defence’s LPH-89 antenna farm attached to CFB Trenton and located along Loyalist Parkway south of Twelve O’clock Point. Of considerable historical importance, Carrying Place or the Portage was thought to have a better future than Toronto when water transport was the principal means of travel. Situated on the narrow neck of land separating the western terminus of the Bay of Quinte from Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario, it was a thriving community in the 1800′s. Both ends of the old portage route were well-developed to accommodate the needs of the tired traveler. Used for centuries by the Indians, Champlain rested here in 1615. A stone cairn commemorates the signing of the Gunshot Treaty of 1787. (It was by this treaty that the Mississauga Indians relinquished to the Crown all of their lands stretching from the Bay of Quinte westerly to the Etobicoke River, including the City […]
