  • The regular paths are very nice for a quiet walk in the snow covered woods. To go on the various trails bring snowshoes. Very scenic and peaceful.  more »
  • Awesome new trails have been added. A great place for the whole family. Camping, hiking, swimming and boating available. Very well maintained.
  • Beautiful park. Was just there this past weekend. The only complaint I have is the dog poop all over the place, even on the walking paths. I just wanted to walk through, not dodge dog poop every ten steps.
  • Exceptionally nice and quiet State Park and campground. General parking for about 30-40 vehicles for walking, hiking, and boating access. About 30 large tent/RV sites, some with handicapped access. Coin operated hot showers available, running water, and toilet facilities. Open year-round with trails groomed for X-country skiing or snow shoeing.
  • Too much dog poop. Wasted 3 bucks. Someone needs to do some serious clean up. Can't hardly walk without stepping in it. What's that about? Presque isle is beautiful, and clean. The state Park was terrible.
  • Very nice park. There is a small usage fee but we were able to rent a canoe for an hour for just $3
