    Presque Isle State Park is about 1,000 years old. Sediment and rubble left over from a melting glacier stayed in this area over time, forming this peninsula. Check out this C-SPAN video for more info. Read more

    Breezy and wonderful. Please don't ruin it by smoking and littering. Beaches 6 & 8 are nice. 1 is less crowded but rough
