South Haven, MI 49090

Mid-October is the perfect time to view stunning fall colors in South Haven. The changing colors and falling leaves are the signature marks of autumn and here you can choose your favorite way to witness these changes in awe. Take a leisurely drive and wind through Van Buren County’s beautiful countryside. Go where the current takes you on a relaxing kayak or canoe adventure on the Black River. Hike or bike under a canopy of oranges, crimsons, scarlets and golds on the Kal-Haven and Van Buren Trails. And, for a view you won’t forget, climb to the top of the dune at Van Buren State Park. South Haven’s diverse landscape has something for everyone to enjoy.
