We got coffee and sat at a picnic table here. We just sat and listened to the water. It was a very relaxing time. The views are beautiful and the restrooms are clean.

Another must see while in Marquette, a local favorite. You don't even have to get out of your car to see the fantastic views. But if you don't get out of your car you will miss even more breathtaking views--Black Rocks, many look out points around the city owned island. Sunset Point is a MUST!

We walked out the break wall and climbed over the rocks to the emergency beacon. It took a solid 1.5 hours to get out there and back with a 5 year old in tow but it was well worth it. The view of the ore docks was worth it.

There was scenery on the whole perimeter of the Isle. Tried going to little Presque Isle but with construction we couldn't seem to... More

Definitely recommend cycling around the park perimeter. Nice ride with really only one hill and lots of lovely views, especially Sunset Point.

Beautiful park with paved roads, and amazing views. We rode our bikes around the isle and enjoyed stopping off at Black Rocks for some fun and great photos. A definite must check it out park. Lots of picnic benches and cool little places to have a picnic.

We toured Presque Isle park on bikes on a recent weekday. The park was absolutely beautiful. Saw a doe and her fawn a few feet into the woods as we made it up a short hill getting into the park. Beautiful views, nice road, picnic facilities as well as bathroom facilities. The problem on bikes was that there were plenty... More

This is a lovely park. The best was the night we went to sunset point. Don't miss this for a picnic, a walk or jut sitting and watching the sun go down. Every town should have a picnic area like this. Charming, priceless

Unexpected park with beautiful views of Lake Superior. A little wilderness in the city. Popular spot for wedding photos.

We unfortunately were there on a cold, rainy day but it looks like a great park to have picnics, read or go for a run. We hope to make it back there someday!
