The park paths are closed in the winter. Not plowed. Would have probably been a beautiful winter drive. I will have to try again when the snow melts.

This is a beautiful park. That is an understatement. It is beyond that. Everyone should visit here at least once in their lives. However, there are signs all through the park that state dogs can not be out of your vehicle. The lake, the cliffs, the trails....even just the road are all wonderful places to enjoy with your pets.

Whenever I get to come home to the Upper Peninsula, I always have to visit Presque Isle Park. Even when the park seems crowded with locals and other visitors, there is always room to enjoy the beauty that is Lake Superior. Every season brings something different to the park. It's definitely a pleasure to be there.

Always a wonderful experience either driving or walking around the park. The inner trails offer close up views of various wildlife critters, the outer trails give spectacular views of Lake Superior! Walking on the break wall gives the sense of the power of the lake and shows the amazing clarity of the water though in winter it is closed due... More

Great place to drive around, or even cross country ski! Very picturesque, and you may even get close to the deer who come right up to you!

Just a beautiful, scenic area to drive thru any time of the year. We saw a deer family one winter - you just never know. We drive here twice a year and it is a must for us!

Winter or summer its always enjoyable to take a drive to Presque Isle when Im in Marquette. Summer you can climb on the rocks and there is a spot to jump off of them. Winter nice to see the lighthouse and ice on the water.

What a beautiful park with so many spectacular views of nature. I love the view from the cliffs. Someone told us that you can see local kids jumping into the water There. We opted not to do that.

Presque Isle Park is a common destination both of visitors and locals to the Marquette area. You can have a picnic, watch the giant ore carriers come and go, hike the numerous trails throughout the island or walk the road that circles it. There is a gazebo on the east side where many weddings are held, the upper break wall... More

This place should be on the cover of Michigan's travel brochure. Nothing beats sitting on the rocks watching the waves roll in. And this place is free, and so easy to drive to! Reminds me of what a wonderful unique place we live here among the Great Lakes!
