The ice on the peri in the winter time is amazing and beautiful. Just be careful and don't walk on the ice because it is very dangerous

Very cool pier that worth seeing. It's a long walk but it's right next to the beach so you can cool down there after. Saw a few teenagers jumping of it but i would be a little cautious doing that specially when the water is not clear.

Wow! That is all I have to say! The lighthouse and walk on the pier is a beautiful site! You can see pretty beach houses, gorgeous boats, and the breeze and smell of the freshwater is priceless! It is a great place for couples, families, and for small children! The teens got to have some fun in the sun and... More

Don't miss walking the pier and the boardwalk- such a fun experience. Stop for ice cream, look in a unique shop, or just boat and people watch.

Very nice state park. Ample parking and clean restrooms. Very nice beach, with huge play area for younger kids, and tons of volleyball nets for older ones. We came specifically for the sunset, which was spectacular. The lighthouse and harbor made for some wonderful photos.

Nothing like a walk on the boardwalk to the end of the pier in Grand Haven where the Grand River empties into Lake Michigan. The light house greets you at the end with views to Muskegon in the north and to the south Port Sheldon. Fishermen occupy the channels walls while boats navigate the channel waters. The beach on the... More

Great spot to view Lake Michigan. We were there at dusk and it was a lovely view of the beach, boats coming and going, and the lake. Quick to see, so stop if you are in the area.

This is a nice place to get a unique view of Lake Michigan and the lakeshore. It is a Grand Haven must do. Beautiful at night but it is not open all night. If you are up for it watch the Musical Fountain and then take the boardwalk to the pier for about a mile. It is always windy and... More
