Life guards were on duty and made sure that all rules were adhered to. Change rooms and snacks on site.

We had a great time checking out all the beaches from water and land. If you are going to rent a kayak go to Lake Erie Outfitters, the prices are best and they let you take them anywhere around the park. Plus they have the newest equipment and most options, and paddle boards (I want to try those next time).... More

Presque Isle state park is just awesome. You have your choice of spending time on the bay side or Lake Erie side or both. This is a very safe clean park. So much to do bike/ walking paths the entire park. So many beaches with awsome sand dunes. I believe there are 11 very clean beaches with life guards. There... More

We stopped at Presque Isle on our way out of Erie. I wish we had more time to explore this gem. It is huge! So many beautiful sights to see from biking to fishing to enjoying the beach. Highly recommend. There is something for everyone.

My husband and I took off to Presque Isle for an area close to the water (Lake Erie) in order to scope out new bicycling trails. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the total,atmosphere of the environment. The park is well maintained and the bicycle paths affords many opportunities to view Lake Erie and other attractions along... More

A beautiful place to relax and chill. Great bike trail, canoe and kayak rentals, bicycle and quadricycle rentals, free boat ramps, ferry service to Erie, ample parking, helpful staff ... And if you go with a tent or an RV there‘s Sara‘s campground situated at the park‘s entrance where you can actually camp ON THE BEACH.

My mom and I needed a day to "get away." We were staying just east of Cleveland and decided to drive to Presque Isle with no specific goal in mind. The one side of the peninsula is more for walking, biking, sight-seeing. The other side is full of beaches. When we got to the tip we saw that there were... More

There are 11 different beaches and they are very nice. They had lifeguards on duty. The park is well kept. The drive on the island is beautiful. There are lots of things to do there. Bicycling, and also you can also rent a cart bike that your family can ride in. I saw people rollerblading, and jogging on the paths,... More

The park is well kept and a very nice outdoor venue. The beaches are nice and vary from calm and kiddie friendly on the tip of the peninsula to having more waves on the lake side. There are places to fly kites, hiking trails, nature areas, and places to rent bicycles, canoes, and boats and a great view of the... More
