It’s so pretty. Plenty of parking ($9). Wish the construction was done, but still worth the drive, from Grand Rapids.

Easy walk out the pier, can't really tour/get into the lighthouse itself. Great views back at the beach and lake. A must-do while in Grand Haven. Be careful if you try and scramble up the large boulders from the beach to the pier - they...More

Nice short walk to the lighthouse, once on the pier. We took the long way from the far end of the beach, so that's our fault, lol. We will have to go back when all of the construction is done, so we can get to...More

A wonderful place to visit. For peace of mind. It is raising money to bring the catwalk back, fun place for the family.

We re -visited the Lighthouse again, and were disappointed that the „railing“ had been taken down. There are bathrooms and it is handicap accessible. Put „Grand Haven State Park Public Bathroom in your GPS, otherwise your walk to the lighthouse will be longer. The fee...More

We had a very nice walk out to the light house. There is construction going on so we couldn’t get too close. But it was fun.

Not sure the legality but I've seen lots of dogs out there. I'd use a leash to be safe.
