Great park with a lot of space between sites. Roads are paved and a little narrow at times but we had no problem getting through with vehicle in tow behind our 34' MH. Michigan state parks don't have WiFi but i did have 2-3 bars of AT&T 4g. Internet wasn't perfect but we had and acceptable connection when needed. The only negative we had was that there is only one dump station for the entire park. It may have been due to the holiday but it took an hour in line to dump before leaving. The beach was a little small but the water was warm and clean in late May. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

leave early on holidays if you plan to use the dump station on your way out.

wood on at the ranger station for $5 a bundle was better quality than the $5 bundle at the gas station up the road.

This is another fine state park in the state of Michigan. It was average as far as campgrounds go, but good for a state park. It is very busy on the weekends in the summer, fully of families and boaters. Sites are dirt. Road is gravel. We didn't have any problems fitting our 40' moto rhome on the site. Beware of Swimmer's Itch if you swim here. We didn't swim, but the rangers were warning campers of it. Close to the town of Grayling and anything you might need to purchase. Verizon cell strength was variable depending upon where you are in the campground. I had 3G at our site, but got it up to a good 4G signal with a booster. Other parts of the campground did have 4G. Several OTA TV channels could be gotten. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely state park conveniently located a short drive off US127 freeway. We stayed one night. The sites are grass, dirt, and level. Short walk to the lake. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Verizon cell/Mi-Fi strong. Would stay again. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I love this campground. It gets 8 out of 10 simply because it's not a full hook-up campground, but on the lines of a state park this place is great! Since my family has a cottage down the street we were able to scout the campground for the best sites before booking our trip. As others have stated, it's best to pick a site furthest from the entrance and main road. The section of East campground where we camp have trees and bushes on the sites easily made even more private depending where you position your camper. There are grassy sites, read the site descriptions thoroughly. The clusters of sites in certain sections of the campground make good opportunities for group camping too. The grounds are clean, bathrooms satisfactory, and staff is friendly. A great family campground indeed. Higgins Lake is rated one of the 10 clearest lakes and is great for swimming and boating. We plan on returning to this campground for many years to come! We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall, this is a nice place to stay. When we first arrived, our reservation was for a site that had a fire pit full of trash. The employee at the ranger station apologized and said that was unusual, then moved us to a different site. The new site was much nicer. We recommend reserving a site farther into the park, not right near the entrance. There is only one sewer drain at the sanitation station, so at check-out time you have to wait in line. We like this State Park, though, and it's just a short walk down a foot path to the lake. The lake is great for swimming because it's shallow so far out. The campground hosts were very friendly. We have camped here 3 years in a row and will probably camp here many times in the future. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly CG staff: nice state park with cheap rate. No grass, gravel or ground cover so sites were mushy from rain. Ok for one night or for local folks with kids. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here over the Memorial Holiday weekend. We were in the East Campground. Older bath house but clean. It is a short walk to the beach at Higgins Lake. We enjoyed our stay there, can't really find anything to complain about. Our site was roomy enough and fairly level. I can't give it more than a 7 based on it being an electric only campground. We would return. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Loved this park. Had site 119. Nice walk to the beach through a trail. The lake was beautiful and clean. My only complaint was the bathroom was not new like and up-dated like most state parks. However, it was clean and the shower pressure was great. Lots of off road trails in the area. We drove through the South side campground and liked this one much better. It was quit and not as crowded feeling. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were disappointed to learn when checking in that we needed to pay an additional $24-$32 for 'vehicle fees' to stay two nights at this campground, on top of the $62 we'd already paid. Apparently a Michigan state policy. Do they expect campers to arrive with a tent on their backs? Anyway, we ended up buying a non-resident 'annual pass' for our motorhome for $29 because we had already pre-paid for another two night campground stay at a Michigan state park for the upcoming week, plus we paid a $6 toad charge. We'll need to buy another toad permit at our next Michigan state campground but saved $3 with the annual pass - which is only good through December 31. When we finally pulled up to our site we were greeted by a mound of dirty aluminum foil in the fire ring, and a good amount of smaller litter on the ground. Not very pleasant. On the plus side of the roster, we did enjoy hiking the nearby Higgins park trails, and thought the fitness stations along the beginning of the 6.5 mile loop were a terrific idea. We also liked the fact that on the lake the park lets you walk with your dogs as long as you stay on the inland side of a nice path that runs parallel to the water. There are plenty of shaded benches that offer nice water views. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Bathhouse was old and in need of repairs. On shores of Higgins Lake, however, had a long walk to get to the lake area only to find out that dogs were not allowed in the lake area. Hiking trails were nice. Large sites, however, ours was close to the road and there was lots of traffic noise. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here at least every other year for the past 15 years in tents and now our motorhome. Great campground. Many bike trails / hiking trils across the road. The lake is fantastic but can be crowded on the beach on the weekends. There is a marina just down the road to rent pontoons also. Water is very clear and for some a bit on the cool side. We camped at North Higgins Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
