The only freshwater beach of its kind in PA. many sandy beaches to choose from, miles of trails to explore, many places to picnic and not too far from many nice places to eat and sleep. Being a birder makes me want to visit this area as often as I can.

A great spot for a family vacation. Took our daughters there years ago and still enjoy returning there every chance we get. There is a ton of stuff to do, you can even camp on the beach next to Presque Isle.

We just went to see the lake, it was beautiful. There are plenty of trails for hiking, and biking. If you have a chance to stop and look around do so, there is a little something for everyone.
