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
Lovely serene place to visit for a picnic. Wish we had realised there would be bbq's there as we would have brought meat to cook! Plenty of space for parking and lots of trails for walking. Remember to bring the fly spray though or prepare to be bitten!
