South Haven

Kiteboarding at South Haven


The closest thing we have to Hawaii on the lake. Call it good mojo, a short pier, or blind luck - but this spot can deliver overhead conditions. There is a small public launch on the south side and a large public beach on the north side. Popular with vacationers - this spot gets packed in the summer and has a great nightlife. The best wind direction for this area is N or NW. Strong fall Northwesters are indescribable.
