Plenty of activities from swimming at the beach to walking trails, bike trails, monuments and lighthouse. Park is clean and easily accessible.

I have never been to Presque Isle before, I actually have never heard of it. Someone recommended that we try it out. I am so very glad that we went.

We were traveling through PA and decided to make a stop in Erie, PA. Presque Isle (French for “almost an island.”) was a recommended place to visit. We were not sure what to expect when we arrived early morning on July 5, as we did not do any research prior to arriving. Entrance to the state park was free. We... More

Beach 6 was clean and well maintained. Bathhouse was very clean. Sara's, a quaint eatery, is THE place for food while at the Beach. It is conveniently at the very entrance to the park.

I am so very lucky that I get to visit this park all the time. Sitting in my beach chair looking out over the lake always takes my breath a way!

Hope to have more time to enjoy it during our next visit but from what we did get to see it is a beautiful area!

We've made 3 trips to Erie over the past two years to support our bass fishing habit. Lake Erie never disappoints and the Presque Isle area is gorgeous. We fished by boat mostly, though also a bit from shore and foot bridges in the park. I usually bring my road bike on trips and enjoyed cycling the well maintained bike... More

My wife and I bicycled the Isle and loved the views, the cleanliness and the respectfulness of the drivers. We recommend it highly!

Rode the whole Penninsula, Loved the cottages floating in the bay. Brought back memories of going as a child.

Just driving around the entire peninsula and watching the astounding views and beautiful beaches (it is fresh, not salt, water). Feeling the sand between your toes, the sunsets are unparralleled. A must see/do when in Erie
