    After having a difficult time finding parking, we tool a nice walk around the area, including going all the way down to the lighthouse. We watched the boats come in for a while and walked around. Their walking paths are nice and wide. Parking is a challenge due to the crowds, so I would not stop here unless you can combine it with other things to do, like hang out at the beach for a bit or take a walk downtown for shopping. If you do go, parking is $10 and you pay at kiosks peppered throughout (tip: take a pic of your license plate before you walk to the kiosk - you will need that)

    Don't miss this hidden gem. The museum is the perfect combination of interactive and educational exhibits. The boats outside are an added bonus.

    This is an easily walkable/bikeable sometimes-shaded, bucolic trail created as a "rail trail" on a former railroad bed from the 1870's. It is all asphalt, flat, & winds alongside bodies of water, sometimes busy main roads and with lots of wildflowers growing alongside (also flies...so, bring bug spray). It is 33.5 miles long, has a campground, Kal Haven Outpost, on the South Haven end of it, as well as a water fountain, bike tools & rest rooms. There are covered bridges & overpasses to go under and through, nice views alongside & benches to rest on. Not sure if its recent closing is a temporary one while work is done on it but, we got super lucky and walked it maybe an hour before barricades were put up, closing it down.

    There are many rentals on North Beach to stay at. I took my family which included two kids. Tons of things to do, super clean beach, can walk along the beach directly to the pier. Highly recommend staying at North Beach.

    Such a great place to visit! My husband and I went with our 2 1/2 year old and we all had a great time. We fed and pet the animals (who all look very well taken care of), picked some delicious blueberries, and purchased some yummy treats from the bakery. Everyone working was so friendly. We were happy to have stopped by this great little place. Highly recommend!

    We rented bikes and rode an enjoyable 6 miles one way to the beach and then back. The trail was paved and well maintained. Mostly shady and mostly flat. It was a fairly easy ride with some small hills. It does cross several roads, so watch the kids close at intersections. Overall we really enjoyed this and would go again.

    We stayed in camp site 100. When we first arrived we were overwhelmed by the number of people there. Some sites are bigger than others but be prepared for multiple tents, multiple cars at each site. We would see 15 people gathered in one site. Lots of children. Just good to know. Some sites towards the back seem a little more secluded if that’s what you’re looking for. We found the bathrooms very clean and modern although we did have to wait for a shower on occasion. It did generally get quiet at night. We found the beach to be an easy and enjoyable walk. It is rocky though so one day we drove into South Haven and the beach there is perfectly smooth. We also enjoyed the 5.5 mile bike trail into South Haven.

    Was very disappointed to see a different playground instead of the wood one. My kids love wood playgrounds. However, this new one is nice and there was plenty for my 5&8 year old to. A bathroom is located next to the park and a short walk to the beach.

    We went to Overhiser Orchards to pick peaches, but while we were there, we were also able to pick pears, blueberries and sunflowers. It's not often that you can pick multiple fruits at the same time. The family staff was extremely friendly and helpful in telling us how and where to pick, how to get the ripest fruits and in what order we should plan our visit. They have regular tractor-drawn wagons that take you out and pick you up from the various locations on the property. We also felt the prices were very reasonable. Tip: If you pick peaches, try not to stack them too high in your bushel or in the car as they are fragile and will bruise. As a treat when we were done, we got fresh lemonade and delicious donuts to go. Highly recommend!

    We stopped for a tasting our teenage son. We each sampled ciders and beer, but skipped the fruit wine. We really liked the ciders and bought some of the semi dry and some of the pear.

    They had non-alcoholic cider as an option so our son could join the tasting.

    The team there was welcoming and friendly and very helpful when we were selecting our purchases.

    COVID specific comments: They had the flow very well set up to minimize contact and to encourage social distancing while inside. Plus they had some tables on the deck and lawn for larger groups.
