Fun Summer Road Trip

Summer is in full swing, and we here at Starr’s Trailer Sales hope it has been a good one! If you are looking for something new and fun to do this weekend, might we suggest taking a trip up to Erie, Pennsylvania to visit the famous Presque Isle State Park! There is something for everyone at Presque Isle, from breathtaking views, 11 miles of beach, camping, outdoor activities and much more! In this post we will highlight some of Presque Isle’s key features as well as where you can camp!


With miles of beach line and several beaches to choose from, Presque Isle provides the opportunity for families and friends alike to find a beach that suits them. All beaches feature lifeguards, which is very reassuring to families who want to bring children with them. Many beaches also feature amenities such as beach volleyball, concession stands, restrooms and picnic areas. Go have a blast on the beaches of Presque Isle, and don’t forget your sunscreen!


Presque Isle is not all about the beaches. There is plenty of outdoor recreation to appeal to even the biggest outdoor lover. If taking in the scenery and walking trails is your thing, Presque Isle features numerous trails of different distances and features. Want to be out on the water? Presque Isle permits both non-powered and registered powered crafts. Boat rentals are also available. The marina offers canoes, kayaks, small motorboats and pontoon boats for rent. One of the more popular activities at Presque Isle is fishing. Common species that can be found are smelt, perch, bass, walleye, trout and salmon in Lake Erie, and panfish, perch, bass, muskellunge, walleye, northern pike, crappies, smelt, and salmon in Presque Isle Bay.


If you want to take your RV out for your adventure, there is a campground available right on Lake Erie that is right next to Presque Isle Bay. Sara’s Campground features more than 100 campsites along both the bayside and lakeside beaches of the lake. Located directly between Presque Isle State Park, with over 12 miles of public beaches, bike paths and nature trails, and Waldameer Amusement Park and Water World, it is the perfect campground for families! Amenities of the campground include:
