This is such a nice state park. Nice beaches for swimming. I go here at least once or twice a year. Definitely worth it.

I was surprised at how large it is and how many beaches there were. Many people were on bike rides, wished I had one with me. Nice relaxing summer day here and see other sights of Erie, PA also.

We left our Hotel on the Bay of Erie to drive to the Beaches especially Beach 1 on Presque Isle to search for stones and explore the surroundings.

Came here for the sunset on Lake Erie. Wasn’t disappointed. Get a good table on the beach about an hour before sunset and have picnic supper.

I was only at Beach 11, but I heard the lifeguard tell someone else that 11 has the least waves, and it is pretty flat to get in the water. It worked for me as I was using a cane. There were many small children there and... More
