Formerly Hills Family Campground, Presque Isle Passage is located on Sterrettania Rd in Fairview just about 7 miles from Presque Isle itself and right off of I-90. We rented a small cabin (number 2) that accommodates 4-6 people.
The cabin was a decent size and had a deck with a porch light, picnic table, 5 plastic chairs, and a fire ring outside, and inside was a pull out couch with a mattress that was less than comfortable, a set of bunk beds and a double bed (again, with less than comfy mattresses), another picnic table with a table cloth, 2 night stands, a book shelf, a dresser (that smelled like it had mildewed, ICK), a recliner swivel rocker chair (which was actually the most cushy and comfortable place to sleep!), a full sized fridge, garbage can with 2 liners, an air conditioner, and a space heater. There are electric hookups, overhead lights, and a table lamp, and the beds had fitted sheets on them, but you must supply your own linens and pillows otherwise. The cabin was definitely no-frills, with only 2 fishing-themed decorations on the walls and fishing-themed curtains, an unfinished paneling ceiling, and then there was this spot behind the door that had duct tape along the edges where it looks like there had been a panel of some sort cut out and replaced. The door frame did not sit flush with the cabin wall, so there was a small gap around the entire edge and also underneath the door, and I imagine that off-season when it is rather chilly the cabin would be fairly cold. It was a little chilly at night when we were there just this past weekend, but the space heater actually heated the cabin very well. For only $50 a night, I suppose I should not have been expecting the Taj Mahal.
The campground itself is sort of small, and most of the campers there are year-rounders. The bath houses are located at either end so it was a trek to get to them if you had to use them in the middle of the night. It was quiet, no loud partiers, so I was grateful for that, but one night rather late the state police did show up and bang loudly on a camper door that was about 4 sites away from our cabin. Have no clue what that was about, but it ended quickly.
The cleaning lady was SLOWER than molasses, and if a bath house was closed for cleaning it took her FOREVER to get the work done, so you had to walk the entire length of the campground to the other one just to use the facilities.
That all aside, what we did find positive about the campground: prices compared to other similar places around the area were great, camp store open long hours and had reasonable prices for items, friendly staff, quiet for the most part, close to stores, gas, and highway, had a nice swimming pool, playground for kids, a fish cleaning station for fishermen that keep their catches for dinner, a game room for teens, and a laundry room.
If you are looking for posh and ultra-comfortable, this is not the place for you. But if you want a basic, reasonably priced place to stay, this is a good option.
