Beautiful way to take in some of the nicest views of the lake. Good stop for nature lovers and/or history buffs.

There's something about a lighthouse that attracts us all. There's something about a sunset that captures us all. Dusk in South Haven offers the best of both worlds and, when the sky permits, there sure are a lot of people who show up. On the pier at the lighthouse and all along the beachfront. A nice experience. Make it happen.

The light house sits on the southern break water wall of the entrance to the harbor. Always busy, but a nice place to watch the sun sit. The main road thru town takes you there with a turn around at the beach. Parking can be a challenge, and most times if you find a spot in town to park, it's... More

The lighthouse was covered up and under construction this fall when we stopped. It's not picture ready yet, but I'm sure it's getting some much needed TLC.

Great subset views in the evening. And around noon on Sunday is a good time to just sit there and watch all the boats and yachts go in and out of the channel

But what the heck do you expect this time of year. It was nice to be able to walk up close to light house and take photos.

I'm not sure why people get so hung-up on these places.. it was just a landmark. But the scenery was amazing. It was a beautiful cold sunny day.. Sky was blue and the lake was too.. If it was a summar day, I'm sure we could've gone to the beach.. but it was too cold this time.

It's a pretty view, unfortunately cloudy most days and high winds.. it's cool to look at and take photos! But after that, we caught ourselves just walking that pier for no reason after shopping around downtown

Really enjoyed the area. Unfortunately it was being refurbished which is a good thing. We will have to come back some other time to view the Light House completed.
