North Higgins Lake State Park is located in Roscommon County and consists of 429 acres. It offers nearly 200 campsites, modern restroom facilities, boat launches, beaches, and trails.  The eleven-mile trail system consists of three trails:  the 6.5 mile North Higgins-Beaver Creek Trail; the 3.8 mile North Higgins-Bosom Pines Trail; and the 1.5 mile North Higgins-Upland Nature Trail. All trails are usable for hiking and cross-country skiing. Trails are groomed in the winter, well-marked and are adjacent to the park on state forest-managed land.  The Upland Nature Trail also includes a series of fitness stations.
