This red tower light is one of my favorites – especially at twilight when the pier lights come on and the sunset paints the sky. The pier is fun to walk (do be careful). During storms or winter weather, the pier and lighthouse take a beating but you can easily enjoy the view from the beach or sitting in your... More

What a cold walk out the pier on the North Shore, well worth it. The view facing South to the big red lighthouse was amazing. Then again, the view in any direction from the South Haven Lighthouses is fantastic!!

Quit a nice little excision. There is nothing that is so beautiful as the beacon warning ships of the dangers of shallow water and shore. If you are a photographer or painter the lighthouse entrance to the marina is unique and scenic.

It is a pleasant walk out to the light house and around the base. There is no entrance, there is water on all sides, no guard rails so hold the children's hands.

Nice stoll opportunity out into Lake Michigan. If you are going anytime other than summer, you might want to have jacket or coat. But good opportunities for pictures of the lighthouse or the shore. Then visit downtown. Nice town.

Awesome sunsets from the lighthouse pier. Easy access to beaches, all in the downtown area. Great gathering place too.

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.
