I'm living in South Haven for work during the summer. My cousin and his family came to visit me for a day, and he was excited because he'd heard all about the lighthouse here. We walked there from downtown, and as we were getting near the water, he asked if we were near the lighthouse. I said, "Yeah, it's straight... More

Nice walk and view. Great place to watch the sun set. Take your camera. A few people took folding chairs to watch the sunset. Some fishing off the pier.

The pier is well maintained and it's a beautiful walk down the river walk to the pier ending in the lighthouse. The view is great and even though it was cold and blustery when we visited several people were taking this stroll! The parking meters are reasonable also ($0.50/ half hr).

The light house was cute and a unique stop on our South Haven visit. The location was close to downtown and a nice walk on a sunny day. There were a lot of people fishing off the pier and we saw a lot of fish in their buckets.

Was visiting the area and took a walk down by the lighthouse. This was really cool to see this and was able to walk right up to it. Very cool!

We love South Haven, MI. The beaches and town are clean and charming. The shops are great, as are the restaurants. If you need a little beach therapy, and you live within driving distance (we are an hour and a half away), this is the place for you.
