“Lighthouse and pier area was wonderful”

Grand Haven Lighthouse and Pier
Ranked #1 of 32 things to do in Grand Haven
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We rented an RV and camped right on the beach. The family enjoyed playing in the water here and walking out to the lighthouse. It was being refurbished but it is wonderful to see and imagine the past here.

Even though it’s In repair right now; well worth the visit to the pier. Walk out on the catwalk and enjoy the wind surf and the beauty of Lake Michigan.
While in town visit the musical fountain, fun place for a family outing, it’s free!

We always take the walk to the lighthouse when in Grand Haven--in spite of my fear of heights, over active imagination, and 3 over active children. The memorial to the people who have died on the pier does not help qualm my fears. I appreciate wanting to do something to both commemorate someone who has tragically died and warn others, but I just didn't like the memorial. Sorry.

That said, a walk to the lighthouse is a must when in Grand Haven, just don't go during high winds, waves, etc.

Beautiful place to come and take photos. Pretty waters, lots of fun activties sea during, surf boarding, wind surfing, boating. Lots to see, very nice park for kids and the shore line is clean and nice for people to have a picnic or lay out for the day. A few times a year teens drowned here cause they jump off the channel and the tides are strong and they get pulled under or they hit there head on the channel wall and drowned.. This beach is known for drownings so if visiting don't lose track of your kids here at night or with friends.

A walk to the end of the Pier at Grand Haven (weather permitting) is a must when we visit GH/SL. Sunsets are great and if there's a moonrise it feels like a bonus. It's a special place no matter the season!
