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

This was our first visit to Presque Isle State Park. We brought our bikes and rode the bike trail. It was beautiful.
