North Higgins Lake is one of the better state parks that I've been to. The campsites have enough trees and privacy to make it seem like you are camping, and it was not a "party" campground. The beach is rather small, and the water is...More

Nice bike trails but park is not as modern as we care for. Beach access but no camping sites along water. Must walk to beach from parking lot.

This is truly an undiscovered gem in Michigan’s state park system. Everyone flocks to South Higgins down the road, only to be shoe-horned into tiny campsites with no privacy, when just a few miles away there's a state park on the same lake with far...More

Clearest, cleanest water I've ever seen since traveling to Hawaii. Fantastic for families with small children. Large, clean beach, showers, bathrooms, vending, occasional food trucks (depending on season). Would definitely go back!

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.

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

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
