The lighthouse looks,fantastic since it was newly refurbished. The restoration made it look like new! Stroll out and watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. Municipal boat slips are plentiful in South Haven so there are always new boats to see. There...More

Very windy the day before, waves going up over the pier, but the next day was very calm and sunny. Walked the pier to the lighthouse, family's fishing and taking pictures. Been to South Haven many times but first time here, beautiful!!!

This is your typical Lake Michigan light house. Great to take some photos with the family. A must see when in South Haven.

I LOVE lighthouses and it was this reason we visited South Haven. We walked down the pier all the way to the lighthouse. I took multiple pictures. The lighthouse, catwalk and pier are very well maintained. We liked it here so much we came back...More

I was trying to find a spot to review the town itself. We thought it was a beautiful town with an extensive beach system, shops, and places to eat. We were there on a hot July day with the sun shining brightly and it was...More

There is free parking up the hill "in town". Parking down by the beach requires payment.
