The name “Waupoos”  is derived from the Ojibwe waabooz, “rabbit”. The Waupoos area lies between the head of Smith’s Bay and Cape Vesey or the “Rock”.

Heinrich Schmidt settled here in 1784 from whose name “Smith Bay” was derived. The view from the Rutherford B. Stevens lookout is gorgeous. This area is apple country, featuring an apple blossom festival in May (see the calendar of events) and pick-your-own apples in the fall.

Prince Edward County is now Ontario’s official fourth wine region — and Waupoos has two of the County’s first wineries.
