ACCOMMODATIONS

Camping The only location to consider is the South Higgins Lake State Park (not the North Park).  Phone (517) 821-6374. Site includes 305 acres, 512 modern campsites, Picnicking, boat launch, and most important, more than one mile of sandy beach. We typically stay in the West campground in the sites at the north end of the middle loops. Boat setup and launch area are immediately north of the camping area.
CAMPING RESERVATIONS

Hotel  Your kidding right?  If you must, there are some small motels in the area - probably 15-20 minute drive from the site.  We'll leave it to Google and your creativity to find them.

So start testing and perfecting those recipes!  If not bringing chili, please bring a dish to pass, salads and desserts.  A volunteer is requested to to coordinate the Chili participants, as well the toppings!  Plastic and paper products will be provided.  Don't forget your beverages!!
