South Haven is fortunate to have seven public beaches or access sites. The North and South Beaches are the largest and most frequently used. Both have concession stands, restrooms, and parking areas. South Beach has children's playground equipment and our big red lighthouse. North Beach is set up for volleyball games. Except for Packard Park which offers restrooms, grills and picnic tables, the beach access sites do not offer any amenities other than sun, sand, and Lake Michigan. South Beach is the sole public beach on the southside of the river. North Beach and the other beaches can be found on the north side. Parking fees collected through the "park and pay program" are used to operate the beach cleaner, providing to the public the most beautiful, cleanest beaches in Southwest Michigan. To avoid fines, be sure to observe parking restrictions at the beaches. We hope you enjoy your day at the beach!
