Higgins Lake offers 449 acres of lakeside recreation and camping in a natural wooded atmosphere. It is home to two campgrounds (some sites with 50 amp service), two mini-cabins, a boat launch, a popular swimming beach, a picnic area and more than 8 miles of trails, including a 1.5-mile looped fitness trail located adjacent to the CCC Museum. The trails are available for hiking, cross-country skiing (groomed) and biking.

The park is situated on the site of what was once one of the world’s largest seedling nurseries. The Higgins Lake Nursery and Civilian Conservation Corps Museum tells the story of the Civilian Conservation Corps that nursery and its role in providing work to young men during the Great Depression.

Approximately 1.9 miles of the Iron Belle Trail biking route runs from the east side of the park to the west side of the park and connects the park to the neighboring RAM Center.
