  • This is all about the lighthouse. But there is so much more. There are campsites right on the beach.  more »
  • Such a beautiful park! So glad we visited. There is a lovely playground for people with younger kids, but we just enjoyed walking and taking pictures.  more »

  • Grand Haven is such an awesome beach town. The state park was beautiful. The beach is so big that it was not crowded even though there were many people there. There is plenty of parking. My only complaint is that the beach is covered in debris. Sharp pieces of plastic, glass, and metal. It was very difficult to walk around barefoot. My foot was cut by something. I recommend that you wear shoes. Other than that everything was perfect and we had an amazing time. I look forward to visiting again. Walking the pier and watching the beautiful sunset was a great experience.
  • Grand Haven St. Park is a great place to go to. Love to take a picnic, walk the pier and boardwalk and the beach. Lake Michigan is very beautiful and a walk on the redone pier gives you a perfect place to look at the lake or watch the boats go in and out from the channel. There are camping facilities and you are close to downtown area, restaurants, shops and anything that strikes your fancy. Also the Pronto Pup is very close by. Great place.
