      There is a beautiful State Park on a sand spit on the Erie side of Lake Erie. It is long and thin, but its one of the finest state parks I’ve ever visited. It is Presque Isle State Park in Erie, PA.

      There are several beaches on the Isle, some with lifeguards and some without. The fishing there is some of the best in the state, and the wildlife and bird watching is well-known.

      Lake Erie,

      even though it is one of the smaller of the Great Lakes is still a Great Lake, and the lake is so deep it has tides like the ocean. The water is clean and cold, and has no discernable smell.

      There are miles of sandy beaches to comb for shells and driftwood, and beautiful pictures to take of the swells hitting the great stone breakers that are just off the beach on the Canada side of ...

      • the Isle. On the bay side, you can watch the hordes of ducks and other water fowl dive for fish, and look over to see the sail boats and fisherman between you and the city of Erie, proper.

        On the Isle there is also a lighthouse commemorating the life of Captain Hazard and what happened to him and his crew, after they put in there for repairs. An aptly named cove nearby was the final resting

        place for a number of his crewmen (Graveyard Cove).

        They are concessions on the Isle, and places to rent bikes, roller blades, canoes, and surreys. The joggig paths are scenic and well attended.

        the rest rooms are clean and even though the Isle is mostly, if not all, snad, the rest rooms are frequently swept out. Its a beautiful Isle and open all year.

        Go in March to see the great sheets of ice crash off the breakers.
