Georgetown, Prince Edward Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (432 words)
Georgetown is a town, located at the mouth of the Brudenell River at Cardigan Bay, in Kings County, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Georgetown, having the Island's only deepwater port, and largely ice-free until late in the winter (this being before the Canso Causeway altered sea ice patterns in the Northumberland Strait), saw dedicated steamship service to the mainland port of Pictou, Nova Scotia with its vital railway connections to the rest of Canada.
Georgetown is adjacent to Brudenell River Provincial Park which hosts a campground and tourist accomodations.
