We look forward to seeing the lighthouse every time we go to South Haven. It is a nice walk out to get a picture or to have it as a backdrop when you are taking pictures of the sunset. Such a beautiful presence!

We visited the South Beach for the Mermaid Megafest on Memorial Day weekend with our kids & grandkids. Everyone had a great time at the beach and on the lighthouse pier :)

This was my first time to see light houses. The ones in Michigan are awesome. Each one is unique within itself

We were making quick trips to area lighthouses as we drove up to the upper peninsula. This one was very pretty but I was particularly impressed with the beach. There was an area for children to play, a decent sized beach, and even actual flushing...More

Nice stroll to the lighthouse down the concrete pier. Watch your step though, the concrete can be hazardous due to wear from the elements. Relaxing though. Sunsets are amazing!!!!!

Short easy walk on a nice pier. Lighthouse is probably 3 stories and it’s not one you go can go inside but nice backdrop for a picture! It is at the point where the river blows into the lake so it’s fun to watch the...More

There are cottages and condos (check VRBO) within walking distance of the light, but I think hotels might be a short drive away. You can use the free parking in downtown South Haven and enjoy a walk past the Marina down to... More

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.
