The pier and lighthouse as well as the beach were clean and well taken care of. Wish there were a few more establishments on the beach to frequent, but the wildlfe and undeveloped area does it make it wonderful too.

It's a lighthouse... what else do you want me to say, it's big and red. Not very walk friendly to get down there but Corp of Engineers says so on sign at entrance.

This is definitely a must-see when in South Haven, especially for a sunset! The walk along the light house piers is great. In addition, during the sunset, there is amble viewing vantage points on either side of the channel to sit back and enjoy the show.

We were down by the lighthouse the other day and took this picture that I thought was cool and decided to share.

If you are in the South Haven area this is a must see especially around sunset. The summers here are beautiful! There is a nice beach right next to the lighthouse for swimming and their is a park for the kiddos as well. The last few times I was here we had some issues with parking so be prepared if... More

Everyone thinks that the beach and lighthouses are summertime treats. Well that really is far from true. You will thank yourself for treating yourself with a winter visit. Winter has its own beauty when it has a lake and a lighthouse involved. Treat yourself to the beauty of ice and lighthouses. You will not be disappointed.

Summer or winter, it a great background for sunset pictures. Be careful in the winter, it's cold, but often really worth the stop.
