It's a small rustic campground along the national scenic Pine River.
It gets busy on the weekends with hikers and kayaks, but quits down during the week. I was here 5 days for the Indian Summer and it was fantastic to witness here. Beautiful hiking trail and river.
We were able to score a last minute site here on an early October weekend. You must make reservations at recreation.gov. They do not accept walk-ins. The trees were a magnificent display of color. Considerable tree cover (no stargazing from the campsite. Very nice bathrooms. Quiet.
We arrived later in the evening at the campground. There were several sites to choose from. We chose a site on the Big Lake. There are also a few sites on the Litte Lake.
The sites include a picnic table and fire ring. We had plenty of room between sites. There were a newer vault toilets 🚻
This is one of our families favorite places to camp. Higgins lake is beautiful. The water is less than waist deep for about 100 yards out and then drops off to about 90' deep. The water color is amazing when the sun is out. There is a massive boat launch in a protected lagoon. The campground has about 400 sites. There are a few sites with full hook-ups. some of the sites are difficult to get into once you get up into the trees away from the water front. Getting a site here during the summer can be very difficult. You will want one of the sites closer to the lake. If you want one of these sites, you will need to be ready to book the site 6 months in advance. There is also a camp store that sells ice cream and homemade pizza.
Overall great campground! Beautiful scenery and well kept. Tent sites had plenty of room on them and lots of privacy. Small walk to your site from where you park but that makes it feel a lot more wild and secluded. They provide a lock box to store food in due to bears in the area. Restroom and shower facility by where you park and those are very nice and well kept to! Plenty outdoor activities to do in the surrounding areas.
I stayed here for two nights recently. The campground is not too large with 18 or 19 sites if I remember correctly. Most of the sites are pretty private and a few are along the river that runs along the campground. The water is very peaceful to listen to while falling asleep.
There are ample vault toilets and enough parking for one or two vehicles on most sites. The sites are not that large, so large RVs will not fit.
Plenty of space for a tent or two per site. Each site has a fire ring and a picnic table. Finding firewood in the campground is near impossible, so plan to bring some or buy some before you arrive.
