This is a very well maintained state park in a great location. Beautiful sandy beach, playground for the kids, beachfront sites available, some with cement pads. The staff was very friendly. We camped here during Cheeseburger Festival, the campground was full and everyone had their campsites decorated in celebration, it was fun! The shower facilities near our site are in need of updating, however the showers closer to the beach are nicer. The campgrounds are a short drive to Caseville. We will absolutely camp here again.
This is a big state park, a bicycle is recommended. 17 miles of singletrack for mountain biking. The park is well maintained. North campsites are at least 1/4 mile walk to the beach, south campsites are at least 1/2 mile. There is an equestrian camping area on site which is one if the largest in the area. Nice sandy beach area with pavilions and bbq's. There is also designated fishing areas and motor boat rentals. We stayed in the south campground, almost all sites have a good amount of privacy with plenty of trees and shrubs. All sites have level cement pads which is a bonus! Soda and ice cream machines at the bathrooms. Showers looked decent, however we did not use the public facilities. This is a good campground for outdoor enthusiasts. We would camp here again.
Overall this was a nice rv park with level, concrete pads. There is a general store, clean shower facilities, small pool and a jacuzzi. This would be a fun place for kids. Here are the cons: The permanent residents were very unwelcoming and at times rude. There is a small pond for fishing, but I didn't catch anything, so good luck. People were riding bikes all over the streets and wouldn't move for cars driving through. The section next to the sites, which are advertised as grass, was mainly dirt and weeds covered in patch grass seed which was dusty and dirty. Probably going to pass on this park next time around in Ludington.
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!
Park is located in a good location with easy access to the lake. The campsites are dirt and a very tight fit, backing in to our site was a challenge. The sewer hook-up was bit far from the space in which our camper fit: the pipe was stretched to the max when connected. Fire pits are small yet deep, be careful not to accidentally fall in! The manager was constantly riding around in his golf cart asking campers if they had guests staying overnight and reminding everyone of visitor hours, it became quite annoying after the 4th time he asked us when we had no visitors. We would probably stay here again if on a group trip, but not again for a quiet weekend getaway.
We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. Very clean campground with fairly large lots and paved roads. Although I did not use the restrooms or showers they appeared to be clean. We stayed at lot 127 which is on a pretty steep incline therefore I would not recommend that particular site unless you have a really long power cable so you can park perpendicular to the road. Lake front sites cannot be reserved and must be requested at check-in. Lake front sites had very little privacy. Overall this was a nice campground and we will definitely come back!
