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.

The lighthouse is just lovely and the bright red against all the snow and frozen lake require a stop. Bundle up (always windy) and carefully make your way along the pier as far as you are willing. When very cold you almost are alone once you leave the parking lot with a few sea gulls for company. Pictures will delight!... More

Awesome to see the ice accumulated on the lighthouse, can't wait to come back in summer to walk out all the way. Cute town also, deserves exploration this summer!

Didn't get really close but looked great from the beach. Saw several people walking long the walkway to it. So it looked like a popular destination.

It's not a light house you would make a trip to see. It's small. However, if you are in South Haven already, the walk out to the lighthouse is a nice stroll.

My family has been going to South Haven every summer since I was a child. I'm 26 now and I still love this lighthouse and this town more than most places that I have been.
