South Haven MI Streets
Snowmobiles had not previously been allowed in the city of South Haven MI, but in January 2010 we were allowed to enter from the Kal-Haven Trail and operate
from the trail head on North Bailey Street along Wells and Dunkley Streets to the Depot RV Park parking lot north of the Depot Store.
There is also an access route to the gas station at the corner of 73rd and Phoenix Street and to hotels on Veterans Boulevard and Dewey Court.

2nd Ave. between 71 1/2 St. and 73rd St.

Snowmobiles may operate on these streets in South Haven, Michigan between 7:00 am and 11:59 pm. All city ordinances including speed and noise are in effect.
Approximately 50% of the snowmobile trail system is located on private lands; 20% federal; 25% state; and 5% on "other public properties."
Michigan snowmobile trails have approximately 150 grooming tractors which are used by more than 65 grant program sponsors to groom this extensive trail system.
If you're wanting to snowmobile on the Kal-Haven Trail, you don't need a Kal-Haven Trail Pass. What you do need is a DNR pass for Michigan snowmobile trails.
The Kal Haven Trail is a multi-use trail running 34 miles from Kalamazoo, Michigan to South Haven Mi. The trail starts in South Haven on North Bailey Avenue and ends in Kalamazoo on 10th Street.
Michigan Snowmobile Trail Permit
In addition to registration of a snowmobile in Michigan or from another state or province, a person who wants to operate a snowmobile in Michigan will need to purchase a snowmobile trail permit sticker.
