The beach at Sara's Campground, Erie, Pennsylvania.

The beaches of Lake Erie are said to offer sunsets that are the second best only to those found in Hawaii, and Presque Isle State Park is visited by more people in one season than Yellowstone National Park. Lake Erie is alive and flowing with activity, and Sara’s Campground is the place to be on Lake Erie!
