The South Pier Lighthouse in Charlevoix, Michigan, is a favorite spot for tourists and residents wanting to catch a dramatic sunset. The lighthouse, located on Lake Michigan sits at the entrance of the Pine River Channel which provides access to Round Lake and Lake Charlevoix. The current 41-foot steel structure was built in 1941. From 1885 to 1914 the light was located on a wooden tower on the north pier. In 2005, the U.S. Coast Guard deemed the light as no longer needed and in 2008 transferred the Charlevoix South Pier Lighthouse to the City of Charlevoix under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act.
