Description
Established in 1839, two lights on the south pier, both painted red, are connected by a lighted catwalk that also connects them to the shore and the Grand Haven Boardwalk. The inner light is cylindrical, and the foghouse outer light stands on a huge concrete foundation. People often enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk that borders the Grand River channel and the pier, making the Grand Haven lighthouses one of the most photographed lighthouses in the Midwest. The Grand Haven pier is also a popular spot for fishing and catching the sunset. ***Currently the south pier which the lighthouses are located on is currently closed for resurfacing and is not accessible. You can still access the boardwalk and view the lighthouses from the Grand Haven State Park. Another way to see the lighthouses, is from the north pier which is accessible via North Shore Drive in Ferrysburg. There is a public parking lot located on the north side of the river channel.
