Presque Isle Park, located within Marquette, Michigan, is a jewel of a park. My family and I spent several hours enjoying the Lake Superior coastline from several points within the park. Some of the rock formations were absolutely beautiful, and there are beach areas with lots of rocks that are excellent for exploring with kids. If your travels bring you... More

This park was very pretty. Nice walking areas with great views. The playground looked like a lot of fun for kids.

We watched the sunset here. Beautiful. The water of Lake Superior is so clear. Nature pure. Special view of the ore boats and the ride around the isalnd is fun. Too cold to swim here this year.

The park is cute and small. It is very pretty and you can get some gorgeous views of the lake. We drove around the park and enjoyed the peace.

Pretty park, right on the water. There are numerous, pretty, easy hiking trails. Really, most are walking trails, not walking trails. It is right in town, so it is easy to get to. The mosquitoes might not be as bad as they are other places. The trek out to the lighthouse is much more daunting than it looks. When the... More

We went through the park and enjoyed the sights. Plenty of picture ops and looked like some good trails to explore. The lake and shoreline is beautiful, and this was a nice place to unwind for a bit.

We have visited Presque Isle Park often over the years and never tire of the beauty. Scary, but interesting, are the "cliff divers". The view is fantastic from all areas of the park. A nice place to picnic and celebrate whatever may be happening in your life.

Stopped and watched a freighter that carries iron ore on the Great Lakes get loaded at the docks. Very fascinating how they load these large freighters with all those rail cars. Then on to drive through Presque Isle Park. Beautiful views of Lake Superior from many vantage points. Highly recommend driving this park if ever in Marquette, Michigan.

Very nice ride through the park & there is no entrance fee. Be aware that if you are traveling by car or motorcycles, that on the weekend they only open up the road at 10:00. Certain days have certain schedules, so check first. Many, many drive offs to look at Lake Superior and take pictures, or have a picnic. It... More
