Higgins Lake is amazing! Gorgeous clear water, great swimming areas. The North state park has a great boat launch, picnic area, sandy beach and even a park store. There are lots of campsites, modern shower/toilet facilities, and there are a couple of mini cabins for...More

This was the most beautiful lake I've ever been in. The water was very clear, and the beach was well maintained. Swimmer's itch was not a problem for us.

We visited on Memorial Day weekend with our new RV and we got lots of help backing it in for the first time. I noticed the sites in the middle back right up to the playground which is great for active kids! We were a...More

I live in the area, and this is the park most families visit. It is just a short jaunt from Exit 206 on U.S. 127. It has all the amenities, plus it s much more peaceful than South Higgins Lake State Park.

The trails begin on the north side of the road across from the main entrance to North Higgins Lake State Park. It is the same entrance for the Fish Hatchery. The trail inclines for some distance and descends rapidly at the end but is only...More

We tent camped here for two nights mid October and loved it. The camp sites are very spacious, great electrical service, outstanding fire pits. Because it was off season it was not crowded at all, but I'm not sure that would matter! The bathrooms are...More

This is truly an undiscovered gem, and although I don't understand why, I'm happy that it's so. Everyone flocks to South Higgins Lake State Park, only to be shoe-horned into tiny campsites with no privacy, when a few miles away there's a state park on...More

We did our inaugural camping trip here and it was great! We used only tents and loved it. Very nice bathroom set-up, spacious lots, and clean. The boat ramp was good, beach excellent, and Higgins Lake? In my top 5 happy spots. We will definitely...More

They wouldn't let us in at Higgins Lake State Park because they require only a recreational pass. You can't buy a day pass. I don't get it. Every State Park is happy to take your money. We ended up going to a small park down...More

Honestly, I am not sure. We did not have a pet and I do not recall seeing any dogs there. I checked the DNR website and it appears that North Higgins Lake State Park does not have pet-friendly areas, but South Higgins Lake... More
