Presque Isle State Park's 100 Days of Summer gets underway this weekend.

The park is getting ready to open guarded beaches for swimming, and there will also be lots of visitors.

Maintenance crews have been mowing and getting everything ready.

This weekend, beaches 6, 8 and 11 will be guarded and open for swimming.

Visitors may notice some beach erosion in spots, as the annual sand replenishment hasn't started yet.

Important things for visitors to remember are:

  • Drinking alcohol is not allowed on the park.
  • You can only swim when and where beaches are guarded.
  • When you picnic, please throw your trash away.

The speed limit for vehicles on the park is 25 mph.
