Higgins Lake

Higgins Lake is a large recreational and fishing lake in Roscommon County. The 9,900 acre lake is known for its deep, clear waters and is the 10th largest in Michigan with a shoreline of 21 miles. It is named after Sylvester Higgins, the first chief of the topographical department of the Michigan Geological Survey. It has a maximum width of 4 miles and a length of 7 miles with a maximum depth of 135 feet. The mean depth is 44 feet (13 m) and the lake contains almost 20 billion cubic feet of water. Its retention time is about 12.5 years. The lake's watershed covers 19,000 acres. The twin-lobed lake receives half of its water from submerged springs, six percent from incoming streams, and the remainder from direct rainfall and runoff. It drains into Marl Lake by the Cut River which runs into Houghton Lake and eventually to Lake Michigan. A mile north of the lake, water flows into the Lake Huron watershed.
