Review of Presque Isle Park

Presque Isle Park
Ranked #1 of 33 things to do in Marquette

You can take a short drive, bike or run around the park. There is a lot to do in such a small vicinity. Many people surf here, there are running trails and a great place to swim if you dare. Lake Superior really never warms up.

This little gem has a driving loop with scenic stops but is best seen on foot. Be aware that they have a rotating schedule for which the park is closed to car traffic. It is posted at the entrance. There is a neat rocky beach as you turn left on the loop, take a sharp right that is basically a 180 degree turn into a small parking lot below. If you are a rock hound, it is a must. There are rocky outcrops to explore but watch the wave action to make sure it is safe. There were teens jumping into the water from the black rocks. Apparently it is safe but I still cringe.

I attended college in Mqt. way back in the 70's and we always had picnics at Presque Isle Park.
It is a wonderful place to just relax, enjoy Lake Superior and take leisurely walks in the park.
Even nowadays when we're in Mqt. we always stop or do a drive-thru.

We visit here to see the waves breaking on the break wall. Really good if you can be there during high winds. Didn't like that we could not drive all the way around but I am sure it was for safety.

Very nice place to visit. You can take a car ride around the park, which could take 10 minutes. Stopping at various points would take additional time, and if you like hikes, a hike around the park could take an hour or more. It is up to you on how much time you want to spend. It is a beautiful place to visit and take pictures.
