Never knew that this place was exist! What an amazing place! Beautiful beaches, felt just like we were on the ocean. We also love the bicycle trails. It's like a combination of Outerbanks and Hilton Head :)

We aren't near the Jersey beaches any more, but this fills the every now and there need. Waves crashing like the beach. Sandy shore to walk. And if you love to walk or bike, there is a trail you can go on the entire length of the island. Its windy, so even if it's super hot, the wind calms the... More

Beautiful park with over a dozen beaches. In some areas you really do feel like you're at the ocean. The summer crowds can make getting from one end of the peninsula a bit time consuming as cars will be bumper to bumper in and out. The lighthouse tour was really nice and provided a beautiful view from the top. We... More

The park is very pretty. You can walk on the beach or in the trails. You can bring your own bike or rent one in the park. I have 3 children under the age of 8. They were not very impressed when we visited because they were not allowed in the water due to the high bacteria count. There were... More

Beach 8 is the best. You can usually park on the road right by the beach and a row of shade trees with picnic tables.You need cash for the concession stand. 13 miles of flat level bike trails with awesome views. Sara's diner at the entrance to the park has orange sherbert and vanilla swirl cones that are addicting. Waldamere... More

Presque Isle is a local treasure. The walking/biking trails are a great way to spend a warm evening with family. Stick with the weekdays to avoid crowding and start a few miles into the park to get the trails to yourself. If only they could send the smell of saltwater into the air, you'd never need to vacation away from... More

Beautiful park! There are plenty of choices and we were able to find a beach that was fairly vacant. Parking was also not a problem. We were passing through the area on a cooler day and stopped to enjoy the scenery. We did not get in the water. I highly recommend this park!

Spent today (Sunday before Memorial Day) touring the park. Absolutely beautiful place. It didn't hurt that we had a PERFECT day weather wise. The sailboats on the lake were stunning. The entire place is well kept, from the walking and biking trails to the beaches. Being a lover of lighthouses, the highlight of my day was the tour of the... More

This is a wonderful place to get away to a beach when you don't have the time to go to the ocean. The park is clean and the beaches are amazing. I was able to sit and read a book - just listening to the water hit the shore. This week was my third visit - I'll be coming back!
