“Presque Isle River”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This allows a beautiful walk along the Presque. It's fascinating to see the swirling waters and the carvings they've made in the rocks. Normally the walk to Lake Superior is great, but this year the last 300 feet was infested with black flies that bit with a fury. This is not always the case. This year was just bad and one should always try it nonetheless.

“Gorgeous hike with multiple waterfall views”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Hike from the Presque Isle campground up to the south boundary road on one side of the river, cross and hike back down the other side. Leave your loud voices and kids at home.

“Amazing”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

We went in late September. Fall was in bloom, the waters were low, and the rocks were beautiful. It felt like a dream. Highly recommended if you have not gone before, even if it is a more of a touristy area. It is for a reason!
