Sunny Day on Lake Michigan in South Haven

The beaches are clean and sandy. There is a charge to park the car near the beach. If you're really lucky you might get a sunny day!

If you are there in August you can enjoy their beautiful, bountiful blueberries!!! They are they BEST!

    Just returned from South Haven and loved it. We did eat at Clementine's and enjoyed it. Such great tips; wish I had thought to check them out before going!
