Must see if your in to light houses, but right now you can only go half way out. They are redoing to pier you walk on so at one point it is blocked off.

Great place to take a walk and see Lake Michigan. You can walk from downtown Grand Haven along the channel all the way out to the beach and lighthouse. Make sure you stop at Pronto Pup along the way.

We walked to this lighthouse and pier from the State Park. It's newly paved and the last part is still under construction. It's more open and safe under the new look. It's smaller than the one in St. Joseph but nice walk on it.

Love that they finally paved the pier! It is so nice and it looks like it’s almost completed. Always enjoy walking the pier with my kids when we are visiting grand haven.

It is an easy and safe walk along the river to the pier. It is still under construction for conversion from wood to concrete pier which should last forever. The kids were using it as a diving platform which was not safe at all. Perhaps...More

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