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.

Arrived before 1000 & the 1100 slot was filled! There were seats available at 1pm & 2pm but did not sign up for those...a lot of people waiting in line with us left as well...very disappointing!

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.
