Winters are wonderfully long in Presque Isle, due to our proximity to Lake Superior's "lake effect" snow...our snow season begins early and ends late! Located at the hub of a major snowmobile system, riders can spend a week and explore a different trail each day.
Presque Isle offers a fantastic variety of wilderness trails for snowmobilers, mountain bikers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts. Situated between state and national forests, our Great Outdoors offers hundreds of miles of beautiful woodland trails to explore.

A Tuna Christmas - Dec. 13, 7pm Denim & Dessert Readers Theatre will bring Northwoods audiences something completely different this holiday season. One night only, Dec. 13, at 7 PM at the Presque Isle Community Center, the troupe will present the comedy, "A Tuna Christmas" by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams.
Created in San Francisco by these 3 comic writers, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. Joe Bob Lipsey's production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills, and many colorful Tuna citizens join in the mayhem.
"A Tuna Christmas" is a delight for all seasons. The New York Post commented "so funny it could make a raccoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett..." Save the date, Dec. 13!
Snowmobile Trail Update Some gentle reminders for our snow enthusiasts. The snowmobile trails are scheduled to open December 12th. With all the snow we have you might think the trails are open, but they are not. (hunting season and swamps, lakes not yet safe to travel over etc).
For those of you on snowshoe trails or cross country ski trails, please remember to wear blaze orange as it is hunting season.
Do not go on the lakes and make sure your pets don't go on the ice, it is not yet safe.
