Sure to Highlight Presque Isle's Natural Beauty!

Presque Isle Lights

Presque Isle Lights welcomes visitors to experience a self-guided evening driving tour of seasonal lights throughout Presque Isle State Park from the comfort and safety of their vehicles. Visitors will follow the park’s full 13-mile loop road encountering along the way a variety of lights and displays coupled with the natural beauty offered by Presque Isle after dark. It takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

You will encounter from the comfort and safety of your vehicle the following along the way:

  • the natural beauty of Presque Isle after dark
  • illuminated areas where power is available
  • a decorated historic Lighthouse
  • the brightly shining Erie skyline seen from across Presque Isle Bay
  • plenty of darkness - the park is about 3,200 acres. (an average city block is about 3 acres) Yes, Presque Isle is BIG!

- Hot cocoa will be available for $2 on Fridays & Saturdays

We welcome drive-thru donations at the 2nd parking lot where event programs will also be distributed - admission is free - please offer your support!
