Off peak season = plenty of parking. Walking out to the light house, there was waves crashing over the channel. The pier for the light house could use some repair, but watching your step is not hard.

One of the most picturesque on Lake MIchigan, in all seasons. You can walk out on the pier to see it up close.

We have been to South Haven several times but we still enjoy walking along the water to the lighthouse. It was a beautiful day when we were there and we enjoyed watching the boats come and go. Was sorry we couldn't stay long enough to watch the sunset. Will definitely go back.

I had never been to South Haven before so utilized many internet outlets (including TripAdvisor) to see what all there was to do and experience in the area during my weekend away. Upon discovering information about the South Pier Lighthouse, I knew I just had to check it out. The 75-foot pier is situated right off of South Haven's South... More

Lighthouse was fun to see. Great activity to do in the evening with the kids. There is a playground & lots of space to fly kites, etc. The entire place is easy to navigate and relaxing.

What's the point of swimming in a giant pool of water, without the threat of being eaten? I mean, Great Beach, Super clean, Great View, needs a Tiki Bar, but that's me and no Sharks? Neat boardwalk to lighthouse, sure was nice and quiet, Back to School Kiddies! This was one of the nicest beaches I've visited in Michigan! After... More

We sat at South Beach near the lighthouse and saw an awesome sunset. It was a nice walk to the lighthouse also.

The beach was really gorgeous and well kept. Ample parking was available for beach goers, walkers or simply gawkers. We enjoyed walking the pier near sunset. The views were gorgeous and it was a nice pier to walk. We will visit again!

Spent the day in South Haven while staying nearby. Enjoyed the Ocean feel of the town. The houses, alleyways, shops, colors and nautical themes, takes you to a far away place - nearby. Waterside restaurants/bars along with the August sun, made this day trip seem like a vacation out east. A definite must see!

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.
