The lighthouse sits out on the end of a pier accessible by a pier. The nearby beach is well-maintained and easily accessed from town and with a fair amount of parking. The lighthouse is automated and not as charming as some of the "ancient" ones...More

Cold blustery day, winds were whipping and the waves were extreme. Wish we could have walked out on the pier, but common sense kicked in. Look forward to returning again in the summer. Breath taking in the winter.

The beach is a great stop. Spend the day here, walk the pier, and you must be here during the sunset.

We visited in late fall, a lot of the shops were closed. It is a beautiful little town! It is right on the waterfront. The harbor is beautiful, and the marinas are gorgeous! Quaint little restaurants make the ambiance nice!

The best time to shoot this place is at "blue hour", after the sun has set. The sky still has color, detail and substance. A little later there is enough darkness for the pier lights and the lighthouse to come on.

My boyfriend and I took a walk out to the lighthouse at night. It was very pretty with the moon reflecting off of the water, and there was another couple out there, too. It was a very nice last minute decision!

South Haven is a beautiful little resort town. Most things were slowing down for the fall when I visited, but I will definitely plan on visiting again next summer. Make sure you check out the beautiful beaches and lighthouse, along with the numerous shops down...More

There is free parking up the hill "in town". Parking down by the beach requires payment.
Can you actually go into the lighthouse or just see it from the outside?

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.
