Why Presque Isle is a Must

Marquette, MI

Presque Isle Park is truly a diamond among gems. This 323 acre park is located on a peninsula that juts into Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan.


The park contains two picnic areas, concession facilities, hiking trails (which we took advantage of at least a little), playgrounds, grassy open areas, a historic wood band shell, restrooms, an open air park shelter, and a custom designed timber gazebo. Not too mention stunning views of Lake Superior, massive black rock coves, and a black rock shore line that I could have explored forever.

The park closes to motor vehicles a few hours every day to allow foot traffic to safely navigate around the island. I haven’t walked the whole island yet but it’s on my list of things to do.

This trip, we visited the park twice, which should say everything. With great views, easy access, and many opportunities to be outside, Presque Isle Park is without a doubt an amazing place to visit.
