“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Walking or swimming, running or biking, Presque Isle is a wonderful place to visit. The trail is scenic and provides a nice, long route. The beaches are well-maintained. And it is surprising how easy it is to reach. We try to get their a few times each year (and we are over an hour away.

“Beautiful Day and Beautiful Views”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We spent most of the day here - first hiking about eight miles along the coastline and then driving the whole park and stopping at pull outs and enjoying the views.

“Presque Isle all dressed up!!!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The time is here!!. Take a ride out to the peninsula. Better yet: take that bike off its' rack, walk along a path, gather beach glass along the shoreline, or canoe in the lagoons, but don't deny yourself the beauty nature is bursting forth to share with you however you choose your approach. Color all around, showing more and more each day, with a full array of leaves in their colorful display. The time is short, before they fall. Presque Isle, in the Fall, to share with all. Enjoy!!!

“Nice beaches and easy drive around on our Harley.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Nice state park and April was not as busy even though it was 70 degrees that day! Water is still very cold in April so do not expect to swim!

“Beautiful and Interesting Park”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

When our kids were small we used to bring them to Presque Isle and they always loved it. There are so many things in the area to enterertains kids with such as the Erie Zoo, Waldemer Water Park, and Presque Isle where you can rent bikes to ride along the trails which most run directly beside the water on the bay side. The beaches on the lake side are very clean and nice. Very much like being at the ocean except there is no saltwater smell. My husband and I walked along the beach and its very serene and relaxing with the water sounds and seagulls flying around. Every area of the park is kept very clean and there are a lot of things to stop and see such as Perry's monument. There are many plaques along the way that explains the battles and history of Presque Isle. During the summer there are a lot of different events and festivals but it's also very nice in the off season just for the nature and trails. Just a drive through the park is enjoyable. This is an area that should not be missed!
