It is a spectacular view of the lake , horizon and the Light house, clubbed together and provide an awesome view to the eyes. Just imagine a Red Light house with a long pier and all you can see is a bright red sky (at sunset) and water meeting the sky . Just go there for the view and you... More

We were headed home from a weekend in Holland and thought why not?!? So we stopped in downtown South Haven... and debated with it being so chilly and windy if we should venture down to the lighthouse. We did and are happy that we did. It's beautiful out on the pier. Cold in October. yes. But even though the waves... More

lighthouse with a great view & setting. Take the time to walk along the beach and view the lighthouse and then head up the pier to get up close to the lighthouse. Very easily accessible. We were there Oct 2014 and it was so picturesque with the leaves changing and the smell of autumn.

We were surprised by the natural beauty of this area in mid-October. Everything was quite quaint in the little town of South Haven. Lots of little shops and eateries. Walking along the street and river down to the lighthouse was beautiful. Same with walking on the pier. Lovely setting.

We never miss a chance to visit this lighthouse when we are in South Haven. You can walk out to the lighthouse. Beautiful views of Lake Michigan. Peaceful to sit out by the lighthouse and listen to the waves. Great sunsets also.

It was nice walking along the beach and down the boardwalk to the lighthouse. The waves were crashing into it and that was fun to see (also a good way to get wet if you don't stand away from the edge). It was beautiful there.

On October 4, 2014 we went to the South Haven Beach and pier. Mother Nature was giving this light house a beating with Lake Michigan's turbulent waves. Waves crashing against the lighthouse and pier were incredible to watch and made photographing/ videotaping easy with the incredible waves and sounds of fury. We have seen it spring, summer, fall and winter... More
