Visitors who wish to simply walk the Muskegon South Pierhead Light and Muskegon South Breakwater Lights are welcome anytime. However, the Muskegon South Pierhead Light (MSPL) tower is now open on a regular schedule for its second season in 2016. The Muskegon South Breakwater Light (MSBL) remains closed to the public until further restoration can be financed.
