You can hike, bike, picnic, and play on the beaches, or use one of their many boat landings from sun up to sun down. The trails go the length of the very beautiful Presque Isle State Park. You owe it to yourself to visit Presque Isle State Park! You can play all day!

Liked the historic sites. Hated that most bathrooms were already locked up. Everything else was expected to be closed due to time of the year. Would of been nice to see at least one Sovenir Shop open, so as to buy a memory to take home.

There are so many things to do and see at Presque Isle. We did a good deal of hiking and beach walking. We hope to return to take advantage of some of the aquatic activities when the weather is warmer.

Need to be able to spend more time. Something for everyone. Picnic, walk, run, just bring a beach chair and a book, roller blade, or grill out. Awesome place.

Checked out Presque Isle State Park for a running destination! Thirteen miles of FLAT scenic paved trail if you run out and back, restrooms are plentiful and depending on the time of the year there are things to do in the area for everyone, swimming, biking, water park or the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. This is a must do trip!

We were passing through the area and stopped at Presque Isle State Park. Spent two hours there and would have liked to spend more time. The park is very large and scenic views of Lake Erie, and Erie PA. There are two lighthouses. Go down the road that says Coast Guard and you will see some very quaint boathouses in... More

If you like nature and taking photographs, this is a great drive. There are three interesting lighthouses, an area with boat houses and many sandy beaches.

The Sunsets were awesome! The Park drives all the way around so you can see the beach and the bay side. Beach was very nice.

Presque Isle has something for everyone. Beaches, volleyball, biking, hiking, canoeing, ice fishing in the winter :>P. Sunsets on beach 10 are the best part of the park.
