This was a nice addition to the already beautiful scenery of the Grand Haven beaches. It adds a little bit of nostalgia :) Fun to take photos by, but would not recommend jumping off of pier or going out there on a windy day. :)

Walked along the beach and went out to see the lighthouse. Nice to see so many people walk hand in hand, on bikes, fishing and all around having fun. Worth the walk..

Great view of lake. Wonderful spot for watching sunsets and the boats on the lake. Fun to walk to end of pier. Great for couples, families and fishermen.

We took some really nice pictures of our kids while we were walking on the pier. A Coast Guard boat passed by and waved to the kids. They really enjoyed that. The weather was beautiful. This location has many stories to tell.

It was relaxing to walk out to the lighthouse - boats were lining up to proceed into the harbor for the Coast Guard festival. The lighthouse is adjacent to the beach that has a nice beach house nearby.

beautiful place. Iwas amazed; very classy, accessible, safe and clean; i had no idea such a beautiful place existed in Michigan. I am from the East Coast and had a real biased view of Michigan growing up - Flint, Detroit....bland, depressing, downtrodden. This is an absolutely beautiful little town, well worth a day's visit.

Awesome views back to the beach. Road out to the end. Lighthouse was freshly painted red... Looks great!, The front part out near the edge of the water was under construction. I guess its all being redone which is awesome.

The pier is a Michigan must-see. It is an easy walk with beautiful views and the beach in this area is very nice and clean. It's also a great place to take pictures. We also enjoy stopping at some of the little shops along the boardwalk for lunch or ice cream and enjoying an easy stroll and the scenery.

It's free we went for a nice walk down the board walk and the pier. It's hard to find a parking spot if you have a state park pass you can park at the state park If there is room we went on a week day and found a spot along the board walk. But on weekends forget it
