Presque Isle State Park

301 Peninsula Drive, Suite 1

Presque Isle State Park is a 3,200-acre sandy peninsula that arches into Lake Erie. As Pennsylvania's only "seashore," Presque Isle offers its visitors a beautiful coastline and many recreational activities, including swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, bicycling and in-line skating. A National Natural Landmark, Presque Isle is a favorite spot for migrating birds. Because of the many unique habitats, Presque Isle contains a greater number of the state's endangered, threatened and rare species than any other area of comparable size in Pennsylvania.

I visited Presque Isle State Park with my granddaughters on June 17 & 18 and had an amazing time. The beaches are clean and beautiful with lifeguards who are alert and on duty as well as friendly and courteous. We chose Beach 10 where the waves and the view made us feel like we were at the ocean. It was a very family friendly beach! The whole park is beautiful with so much to do! Just be aware though, that even though they advertise concession stands, there wasn't any food - only drinks and bags of chips, cookies, etc. - so pack a lunch! There also aren't any showers in the change house, only an outside shower. But I still give Presque Isle 5 stars. We'll just be better prepared next time.

My husband and I came here for a two-day vacation. It was amazing! Kayaking in the lake was fun and affordable. There are at least 12 beaches along the coast, all of them equally beautiful. There's a historical lighthouse for you to visit too. We will definitely come back again! Update - we came back for a second time this past weekend, and we had a wonderful experience. This time, we finally was abke to climb the lighthouse and get a nice view!

Great place! For a walk. For a bike ride. For a swim. For getting a tan. Even a slow relaxing drive. (Right now there are goslings all over the peninsula.)

The deer tick population is no joke here this year! Make sure to protect yourself and your pets if you are on the trail! My dog had 4 deer ticks on him after a short walk here (Bayside) he will not be returning until the Winter. Beautiful park! I do still go here daily and jog...the beaches are nice. They have certain beaches open for dogs (please keep your dog on leash though) during the summer and it seems during the off season you can take your dog to mostly all beaches. Make sure to check out the website and take advantage of the free pontoon tours of, I think it's, misery bay. They also have regular tours, lots of great fishing spots, there is sometimes yoga on the beach on Mondays, just so much to do that doesn't break the bank!

This is such a wonderful place. The views are to die for, and you can get both city views and just wide open water. The pier with the little lighthouse is great- a little ominous, too, but I mean that in the best way. Can't wait to go back!
