Awesome sunset
Sep 2021 • Friends
We visited this beach because we were determined to see an awesome sunset...and we did! The pier and lighthouse made for some beautiful pictures. The beach was free and they have restrooms! A little off the beaten path, but worth it!

Less crowded - great place!
Jul 2021
We spent half a day in Ludington and half a day in Manistee. Knowing what I know now, I would have spent more time in Manistee. The beach and lighthouse were just as nice but the crowds were missing further north. We were able to park easily at the beach, kids could play on the playground, and there was food and bathrooms nearby. Want a quieter beach? Head a half-hour north of Ludington!

Nice

A nice pier to walk to the lighthouse and a good beach. Unfortunately, it was too early to enjoy the water but the photos will show you the beauty of the place. Very popular on hot summer days and the water is so clear!

Very Cold and Icy in March but well worth a Visit

Seeing Lake Michigan in the winter is worth the visit. Could not get too close to the lighthouse because of ice but the beaches and park area around the shore are nice to see and walk around, even in freezing weather.

We stopped and had the pleasure of walking out to this lighthouse while driving up the coast. The profile picture for this attraction does not at all reflect what the light currently looks like. It has been recently repainted. It has the boards intact on the second walkway, which is unique amongst the great lake lighthouses that i have seen. A very nice beach and parks surround this lighthouse. Parking is free all around and there are public restrooms.

Gorgeous views
Jul 2020 • Family
Absolutely beautiful views! Get to the beach off 5th street before 11am and find plenty of parking. The lighthouse is painted perfectly and the pier is nice and wide to stroll on. **beware of some wet spots that can be slippery probably from algae growth** Better than most for families with small children, or strollers, etc. The 5th Street beach had a concession stand that opened around noon, and clean bathrooms.

Beutiful sunset

Worth a visit to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. It was crowded but cleared out after the sun set.

Beautiful!

This is one of the MANY excellent lighthouse locations throughout the Great Lakes, and the surrounding area of this is not only easy to access, but a wonderful place to spend a day, week or the entire summer. I have many photo's of this light and the surrounding beach area.

Walk out to the lighthouse on the Manistee North pier
Dec 2019
Visited Manistee in December of the year (2019). I always try to take a walk out on the pier to see what is going on. On this mild December night (37 degrees) there were a handful of fisherman on the pier, but nobody was catching anything.

From super windy to calm
Oct 2019 • Solo
First day I went waves were crashing over the South Pier and part of the north. There's not much left of the beach, water is way high! Next day the lake was calm.
