There is so much to do not jus swimming. Fishing, boat rides, some that cost and some that are free. Hiking around trails, bike riding yours or a rental. So much to do and see here all year round.

Normally, I wouldn't recommend a scenic drive during winter but this might be the only time where you could actually see the scenery without having to worry about traffic and way too many people. I can only imagine how popular this park is during "the season." We were able to get out of the car to take pictures from both... More

If you are able to get close to Erie you must visit Presque Isle. It is most appealing in the warmer months and especially the summer but nature is beautiful all year long. The beaches, fishing, boating and a dozen other activities are all splendidly available.

Enjoyed the day visiting Presque Isle State Park. The kayaking, walking, biking, beaches and activities are very nice. Friendly park rangers willing to provide advice on where to park and what to do.

I go here year-round because it is honestly one of the best places to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. You can do many outdoor activities.

Beautiful place to relax! The park is amazing, once there you can think you're on the beach! In Erie take a time to visit Presque Isle.

No matter the weather, there's always something to do at Presque Isle State Park! On a Jan. 30, 2016, visit, we walked, watched people ice fishing, checked out the small ice dunes and enjoyed a mild winter day in the park! Summer obviously is fun but the rest of the year is, too! Great place to take a walk or... More

Take a camera with you. You will see something for sure worth snapping a picture of and the whole family will enjoy all the sights there is to see. If you enjoy walking they have a lot of places to walk and rollerblade and it is patrolled by state park police and state police all the time so you feel... More

This Park is quite beautiful. My husband and I went in the winter and there was a lot of snow and the place was very peaceful and perfect for a walk.

Presque Isle is a must see for anyone visiting the Erie area anytime of year. The park offers great views of the lake and has great walking trails. The park has ample parking and is located not far from the downtown area.
