Great view at the end of the walkway along the South Haven Lighthouses. Wide flat surface which can accommodate lots of people so you don't feel overwhelmed. At the end is a lovely virwpoint looking across to the beach and out on Lake Michigan. Lovely!

The South Haven Lighthouse is a photographer's point of interest from several vantage points and any time of day. Very dramatic at sunset. Daytime brings many different activities to the area: boating, swimming, fishing, etc. The pier is a nice long walk in itself. It...More

The lighthouses and surrounding area are great. Spent a week there, and we are adding it to our go again list! Had children with us, 4 of them ages 3 and down. Nap time along the beach and waves is great!

It's a short walk out to the light house at South Park. It's interesting to watch the boats sail in and out of the Black River. There's a lovely sand beach there, a concession stand and clean bathrooms. It's a great place to watch the...More

Beautiful during the day and at night. Try to visit when you can. It is one of the nicest lighthouses on Lake Michigan. Take plenty of pictures!!

Nice casual walk to the end of the pier. We went at sunset and took beautiful pictures. Annoying drone fliers were everywhere, obnoxious.

It's just cool to have a lighthouse on the pier! Classic red lighthouse that you can walk out to (keep little ones close - no railings, but the pier is wide). So pretty against the lake and sky! This is not a lighthouse that you...More

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

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

I am not aware that you can go in. There is a door but it is locked. I would assume no general public entrance. It is a VERY small lighthouse so there would not be a lot to see anyway.
