We made the best of a windy and rainy day and ventured out to the lighthouse. We had a good time getting splashed by the waves and laughing. Very scenic area so be sure to bring your camera.

We have made several trips mainly during each season to enjoy either sitting and watching the sunset or walking out onto the pier and being a first hand visitor. We love this pier area and it seems to draw people right up to the buidling. To be there for a sunset is beyond words. The first time it was as... More

We went twice. Fri & Sat, during the blueberry festival. Gorgeous, peaceful. It felt amazing to take a walk on a pier, watching the boats, looking at the lake, seeing smiley faces. Weather was on our side all weekend. Lighthouse itself is not that great. But it does enhance the whole experience. Definitely a must do when in South Haven.

It was a beautiful lighthouse and was in a great location, right on Lake Michigan. We had a nice walk to see the lighthouse

This was a light house for a doll house! It was smaller than I expected. The pier was crowded. Very hard to get a nice photo.

At the end of the canal leading into south Haven a pretty pier looks out into Lake Michigan. It faces West which gives great opportunities for sunset photos with the light house as a point of interest.

The walkway out to the main lighthouse is open, so visitors can walk to the end. It's a wonderful old lighthouse. The walkway is along the edge of the channel, so we were able to watch several boats come back into the harbor after a day on the lake.

Lighthouse itself nothing special but fun on pier to watch people and boats. It is a good first stop in South Haven.

Love the walk out to the lighthouse. It was a little choppy one day so we waited until the next day. Always lots of people out there to talk to and very peaceful.
