Higgins Lake Regatta
May 18th & 19th
South Higgins Lake State Park
Check to see who has pre-registered [Coming Soon]
If you enjoy crystal clear water and a beautiful campsite setting, then this is the place for you. Higgins Lake State Park provides a spectacular protected site that is amazing to sail any time of the year, assuming the water is in its liquid form... ;)
NORThe Official 2024 CRAM Common NOR is posted [Coming Soon]
Further event-specific and registration information is available below. In case of discrepancy, the NOR takes precedence.
VENUESouth Higgins Lake State Park near Roscommon. Superlatives can't do Higgins Lake justice. 9900 acres of protected crystal clear water, a well-kept wooded campground, and easy access to the highways. This is one fantastic place to sail.
DIRECTIONSNorth on I-75 to Roscommon exit. Left at the stop sign at the end of the exit ramp, go over the overpass, then take a right on Robinson Lake Road. Left at County Road 100. Follow this road to signs for park entrance.
Camping: The only location to consider is the South Higgins Lake State Park (not the North Park). Phone (517) 821-6374. The park includes 305 acres, 512 modern campsites, picnicing, an excellent boat launch, and most importantly, more than one mile of sandy beach. We typically stay on the west side of the campground, in the sites at the north end of the middle loops. Boat setup and launch area are immediately north of the camping area.
Hotel: You're kidding right? If you must, there are some small motels in the area - probably a 15-20 minute drive from the site. We'll leave it to Google and your creativity to find them.
Back by popular demand, we will have our traditional chili cook-off on Saturday! It's never to early start testing and perfecting those recipes! If not bringing chili, please bring a dish to pass, salads, or desserts.
Please try to bring your own camping dishes and cutlery to help cut down landfill waste during the event. Don't forget your beverages!!
