North Higgins Lake State Park
North Higgins Lake State Park, located on the north shore of Higgins Lake, is home to 449 acres of lakeside recreation in a natural wooded atmosphere. The park is situated on the site of what was once one of the world’s largest seedling nurseries and features a museum dedicated to telling the story of that nursery, Michigan forestry and the Civilian Conservation Corp’s efforts in Michigan.
The park is home to two campgrounds, overnight lodging facilities, 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 campground is open all year.
The Higgins Lake Nursery and CCC Museum tells the story of the Civilian Conservation Corps and its role in providing work to young men during the Great Depression. Historical interpretation is provided by the Michigan History Center.
Before visiting a state park, boating site or trail, it’s always a good idea to check the latest closures due to weather-related events, planned improvement projects and repairs. Visit Michigan.gov/DNRClosures.
