Presque Isle State Park

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.

Delightful! This was my 4th walk/hike and each has been informative and entertaining. I find myself thinking about topics shared by the rangers as I visit the park.

Bill and Terry were wonderful! As was the little girl who’s name I didn’t catch. A very pleasurable experience for myself and children (6 & 10).

We enjoyed the pontoon boat ride at the lagoon. The online early bird reservation did not work but we showed up in the morning and had a great time, enjoying the scenery, learning about the flowers, water plants, beaver lodges, turtles and history.
