8 Reviews of South Higgins Lake State Park
Amazing gem!

We’ve been to this campground twice and each time we had an amazing time. The bathrooms are clean. The beach is clean and the water clear. The beach is great for kids to play in safely while the parents chill at the shore. Fellow campers have super helpful both times we’ve been there. This park is a great place for a yearly family trip.

Great campground on a great lake!

Stayed here before the 4th of July for the weekend and was really impressed with the facilities and size of spaces at the campground. For being such a busy campground (since there is a boat launch) the sites are still quite large! We were able to fit 2 large tents, a small tent, 2 cars, 1 boat trailer and a sun shade for our gear with plenty of room to spare.

The restrooms (which I am told were recently renovated) were very clean.

The beaches were well maintained and plenty of space to moor boats overnight.

In addition to the boat launch there is also a camp store down the road with tons of snacks, camping gear/utensils, and Higgins lake souvenirs.

I will definitely return again! Be sure to catch a sunset from the campground beaches, you won’t regret it!

If you aren't familiar with this lake it is extremely clear (see video) and very large, there are 2 sandbar areas which are very popular providing 3-4 feet water to hangout in.

Great place

Clean beach. Great for boating. Busy camping but awesome lake to be on.

Friendly people

Neighbors were very friendly. Had a great time camping here.


Water is very beautiful! Gets very very crowded though. They have a really nice Halloween weekends.

beautiful lake, crowded dirty camp

we love Higgins lake, it’s clear, shallow and great for a family with small children. the campground was crowded, loud, and so dirty.

Soon to be repeat visitors. Gorgeous lake!

We stayed in the East loop of the campground and were by the boat launch which was very convenient because we could put in and leave our boat in overnight! There are 2 bathhouses (bathrooms with separate showers), the one bathroom was much nicer than the other. The lake is absolutely gorgeous. Theres another very shallIow lake maybe a mIle down the road that we took oIr kayaks to and was perfect fIr them! We liked the lake and campground so much we booked another weekend for the end of the summer!

First to Review
Our favorite place!

We spend several weekends at this campground and love it. On holiday weekends we camp further away from the boat launch, as it gets extremely busy! Try to get a full hook up site if you can… line to dump on your way out!
