Higgins Lake is the tenth largest lake in Michigan and has 22 miles of shoreline. This gorgeous lake is located just five miles west of the city of Roscommon in Roscommon County and population growth with new residential developments has made the lake area one of the fastest growing counties in the state in recent years.
