If you enjoy crystal clear water and a beautiful campsite setting, then this is the place for you. Higgins Lake State Park provides a spectacular protected site that is amazing to sail any time of the year (assuming water is in it's liquid form ;) . The Saturday night party will be the annual Chili Cookoff. Bring your best pot of chili and compete for the best chili of 2019!
VENUESouth Higgins Lake State Park near Roscommon. Superlatives can't do Higgins lake justice. 9900 acres of protected crystal clear water, a well kept wooded campground, and easy access to the highways. This is one fantastic place to sail.
DIRECTIONSNorth on I-75 to Roscommon exit. Left at stop sign at the end of exit ramp, over overpass, right on Robinson Lake Road. Left at County Road 100. Follow this road to signs for park entrance.
Camping The only location to consider is the South Higgins Lake State Park (not the North Park). Phone (517) 821-6374. Site includes 305 acres, 512 modern campsites, Picnicking, boat launch, and most important, more than one mile of sandy beach. We typically stay in the West campground in the sites at the north end of the middle loops. Boat setup and launch area are immediately north of the camping area.
Hotel You're kidding right? If you must, there are some small motels in the area - probably 15-20 minute drive from the site. We'll leave it to Google and your creativity to find them.
Back by popular demand, we'll have our traditional chili cookoff. So start testing and perfecting those recipes! If not bringing chili, please bring a dish to pass, salads and desserts. A volunteer is requested to to coordinate the Chili participants, as well the toppings! Plastic and paper products will be provided. Don't forget your beverages!!
