|Holland Lighthouse is located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of Lake Macatawa. Affectionately
known as "Big Red" (though our picture at sunset does not do it justice). It is a beautiful lighthouse. While
the Lighthouse is located on the south side of the mouth, the best views are from Holland State Park on the north
side. The state park is displayed on most maps. To get there, turn east off of US 31 onto Lakewood Blvd. Then left
on Douglas Ave. Douglas Ave will turn into Ottawa Beach Road. Stay on Ottawa Beach Road and you will arrive at
the park. The park is well marked with signs. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, we give it 4 stars.
P.S. We visited Holland in April when the town celebrates its Dutch heritage with a tulip festival. There is a full-scale working windmill. It is a wonderful time to visit.
