View Full Version : Training near Kalamazoo / South Haven?

I'm vacationing near South Haven in late June and early July.

Does anyone have recommendations for nearby teams, lap pools, or even open-water swims?

Thanks much!

Depending on the wind, Lake Michigan itself is a great open water venue. I usually go from the first public access beach (straight west of the bridge) down to the pier and back. If the wind is from the north or east, however, the water will be too cold. South Haven High School has a pool and an age group program. You can check with them. Otherwise, there are numerous small local lakes that should suffice. If you have time, I'd recommend taking the drive up to Holland (about 40 min. north). They have a great community pool complex and if you have kids, there's even an indoor water slide/fun complex.

How about Muskegon State Park Beach?
