North Higgins Lake State Park is a state park located in Beaver Creek Township, Crawford County, just northwest of Roscommon, Michigan. It located on the north shore of Higgins Lake and on what was once the world's largest seedling nursery. The park has 174 modern campsites.
The Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center is located adjacent to the park. This educational center serves state and federal agencies, educational groups and other nonprofit organizations in a natural setting away from the distractions of home and the work place. Visit the web site for additional information.
The Civilian Conservation Corps Museum, Roscommon, also located next to the park, documents the efforts to "put Americans back to work" during the Great Depression. The Civilian Conservation Corps enrolled more than 100,000 young Michigan men to perform a variety of a conservation and reforestation efforts. Between 1933 and 1942, the Michigan Civilian Conservation Corps planted 484 million trees, spend 140,000 days fighting forest fires and constructed 7,000 miles of truck trails, 504 bridges and 222 buildings. The Michigan state park system still carries many examples of their work still in use today.
