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.

The South Pier in Grand Haven is not only a tourist must, but a place we love to visit every day, home for us. The catwalk is down for the year, and half of the pier is now smooth pavement. The boardwalk, beach, campgrounds, the...More

It is a beautiful lighthouse! We enjoyed the walk to the lighthouse. It is a very nice walk from town. It is under construction and you cannot walk all of the way to the further building. That didn't really matter to us, though. It does...More

I was kind of bummed to see that there was construction and it was closed off to go all the way to the end, but it's a light house, it don't care if I wanna go further.

This pier is lovely and is a very move walk. Their are no tours offered but you can walk up to the first lighthouse. If you are a lighthouse enthusiast this place is a must as are all of Michigan’s lighthouses.

Really Really hard to get a reservation there is a click of people who make a part time job of making sure they are there every year..Beautiful view but very tight on Beach side Holland State Park is a much better value

Always love to walk out on the Pier. Looks like they have just repaved it. Beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Most people smile and say hi as you walk by. Interesting mix of relaxing and energizing.

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