10 Reviews of North Higgins Lake

The lake is beautiful. Park is very well maintained.

Nice overnite stay

We stayed for a quick overnight and wish we could have stayed longer. If we stayed again - we’d pick site 101. Little more privacy than the rest. We stayed at 137 which backed up to the woods which was lovely. This is a very bustling and full campground with lots of groups and families. Lot’s of kids on bikes. We were surprised to see a group with a full bar right out front on their site. We’re used to Texas parks where that would NOT fly😆 But everyone respected the quiet hours so we had no noise issues at night. Easy access to the water from everywhere thanks to groomed paths. Nice long but narrow sandy beach great for the kids to swim. Busy but very fun place to camp!

We love this park!

It is in a nice location with lakeside swimming and picnic tables while having the camping site close by. Campers are respectful and it is nice and quiet at night. Terrific park!

Busy and Bustling

Ive been wanting to paddle Higgins lake for a long time but never did because I know I am not a huge fan of state parks…. especially the large, crowded ones like this. You know what though? This place wasn’t all that bad! It was busy, there was a TON of sites, and not much space between neighbors… but, the sites were heavily wooded, the boat launch/lake was beautiful, and our neighbors were very friendly. So honestly, it could have been much worse. I could see how this place would be ideal for large families and small children. Lots to do and plenty of other kids to play with. Also a great spot for people who use trailers, campers, and pop ups, rather than traditional tents.

Overnite stay in cabin

One nite stay in cabin. Cabin had electricity, mini fridge, electricity and bunk beds. Only complaint was cabin was close to fairly busy road.

Not impressed

We were on sight 169 this whole side is next to a busy road cars and logging trucks all day and night way noisy, campground was filthy trash everywhere on the trails and sights! Plus no dogs allowed on the beach.

Camp host ??? Unfriendly set with his back to the road and never even waved

Beautiful campground

We stayed in a travel trailer on site 73 the week before the 4th of July week. The park and bathrooms were always clean, showers were clean and had good water pressure. They did lose power in the whole park for about 3 hours due to a squirrel chewing through a wire somewhere. The beach was nice, water is crystal clear. we will return in the future

Interesting place!

I actually met my wife here for the first time so this is a very sentimental place.

Located pretty far north, Higgins like offers a very spread out experience. With a handful of beach fronts, woods, hammock space, playground equipment, grills, and open space, there’s something for everyone here.

When we visited there was a warning about water quality for some reason so we never actually went swimming, i think it had something to do with bacteria or bugs. For not being able to swim it was a great experience.

Great area.

Loved camping here! Beach was really nice!

First to Review
Great beach & nice size site!

The beach was great, soft sand bottom, water was clear & cold! Sites can get messy since ground is a dirt/sand mix. Our site location was noisy at times since so close to a main road. Bathrooms could use an update but were still in good working order. I’m pretty sure we’ll be going back next summer!
