Check for signs posted at the beach before swimming at Presque Isle State Park. The picnic pavillion on this beach makes it a perfect spot for family reunions or other large group get togethers, the playground on the beach is a fun addition to a picnic as well. Waterworks Beach is a great spot for fishing and has a convenient wheelchair ramp down to the water (free loaner beach wheelchairs are available at the park). There are washrooms and a lifeguard on site. Waterworks is near Yellow Bike rental, where you can rent bikes or even a Segway to tour the park in style. Waterworks was originally the source of freshwater for the city of Erie, which is how it got it’s name. A pump house was built here in 1908 to supply the city, the pump house is now used to control the zebra mussel population in the lake.

What fun we had with our cousins, on the shores of Lake Erie, in the dark, with flashlight strapped to our head.
