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!
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
Just like most of the State Parks, clean, quiet, great facilities, and comfortable affordable camping.
Nice place to get out and enjoy nature
