We visited the park on a very calm day, and again on a very windy day. It made our experiences feel totally different. There is a brake water that you can walk partly out on, or all the way to the end. On the calm day, I made it out fairly far. On the windy day, my family made it... More

I love Presque Isle. It is like no other place on Earth I have ever been. The beautiful hiking trails along the shores of Superior and through the forests, the cliff, rock climbing, cliff diving, beautiful little coves where people are swimming in summer despite Superior' coldness. Lake Superior is crystal clear. You can see directly to the bottom -... More

Lots to do on Presque Isle! Here's the list of what I can think of: boating, picnics, children's park, ice cream vendor, Moosewood Nature Center, swimming, rock skipping, cliff jumping, kayaking, hiking, biking, running, deer watching, and lots of smiling! Love this place.

This is one of the top scenic locations on Lake Superior. The two mile drive around "the Island" as it's known locally gives you access to shoreline vistas and hidden coves. Lots on natural beauty. Picnic areas and an ice cream store in the summer. Good place to watch for Great Lakes freighters.
