Torch Lake & Higgins Lake | Pure Michigan Camping

Torch Lake & Higgins Lake | Pure Michigan Camping

#1StrangeAdventure #TorchLake #HigginsLake #GD4LIFE
In this episode we explore Higgins Lake and Torch lake. Both located in Northern Michigan. These crystal clear lakes are very much the Caribbean of the north. North Higgins Lake State Park and South Higgins Lake State Park both give you access to the beautiful water and a nice swimming area. Torch lake is crystal clear and a true gem of the north. If you get a chance to visit either, do it! Camping in Pure Michigan is beautiful and you will not be disappointed. We enjoyed every minute of this family adventure. Until the next STRANGE adventure, keep making your own.

  6. Angie Wohlschlegel on November 24, 2022 at 8:44 am

    I grew up on Higgins Lake and now live on Torch Lake, I loved your comments, reminded me how lucky I am.

  7. Patti Ann on November 24, 2022 at 8:47 am

    Roscommon not Roscoma. Higgins is a Spring fed lake. You should see lake Charlevoix and Walloon lake!

  16. Lonni Renee’ on November 24, 2022 at 8:57 am

    Love the video. I never knew Michigan had a crystal clear lake. I hope to visit the lake one day.

  17. Cleigh on November 24, 2022 at 8:57 am

    Great video everything is so beautiful….We are trying to find a new place to vacation to we usually go to Florida Panhandle but it is so crowded there….We love to explore nature more than anything but we would like to have an “ocean like” beach with clear swimming water….I would appreciate any recommendations of a town/beach on the great lakes that’s a great central spot a nice beachy town with family oriented businesses and yes the swimming beach is a must!

  18. Shanna Craft on November 24, 2022 at 8:59 am

    🌼 Beautiful!!! And I love the music! I have saved Torch Lake on my map.
    Box Van Dee and Blue Odyssey introduced y’all to me.

  20. Theresa Graham on November 24, 2022 at 9:04 am

  21. Lucky Dawg Productions on November 24, 2022 at 9:05 am

    Great video. I am originally from Ohio and spent lots of time in Michigan. Beautiful scenery. Fantastic drone footage. Used to see lots of black squirrels in Ohio. Thanks for sharing.

  22. BluSky Odyssey on November 24, 2022 at 9:07 am

    Those are two beautiful lakes! You’re right, they are crystal clear and so blue, especially Torch Lake. Looks like you had a great time. What a perfect song for a camping trip too 🙂

  25. Find Us Camping on November 24, 2022 at 9:08 am

    Great views of the lake. Lisa loves the clear water she always wants to go to The Keys, maybe I can take here up there now. A little cooler for me!!

  26. Garcias On Wheels on November 24, 2022 at 9:10 am

    that water was so beautiful!

  27. RH63 on November 24, 2022 at 9:10 am

    Awesome video! Here in Western NY, we don’t see many black Squirrels but we have their cousin, the elusive and wiley Red Squirrels. Believe it or not, they love Cheese Puffs! 🙂

  28. Jaxmom on November 24, 2022 at 9:14 am

    Nice scenery but you said nothing about either campgrounds other than Higgins was closed. I thought this video was about camping.Since it is a Pure Michigan camping video and nothing about camping I have to give a thumbs down.

  29. Alice Days on November 24, 2022 at 9:15 am

    You got to see sleeping bear dunes.!

  30. Helen Ho on November 24, 2022 at 9:15 am

    Hi! I really enjoyed your video. Was there street parking at Torch lake? Thanks!

  31. Timothy Raymond on November 24, 2022 at 9:15 am

  33. Simple Life, Big Adventures on November 24, 2022 at 9:16 am

    Love it! We just got back to Tennessee after spending the week in the thumb of Michigan. Paddling and swimming all week on Lake Huron 😄 After talking with a few locals at the campground, we added Higgins Lake to our exploring list. Torch Lake was already there. Lol
    Beautiful footage!

  34. HitchUpAndTow on November 24, 2022 at 9:17 am

    Lovely place and great footage, thanks for sharing🙂Mark & Coral

  35. Laura Pawli on November 24, 2022 at 9:20 am

    You need to learn how to pronounce Roscomon (ROS-COM-ON).

  36. Sky Tate on November 24, 2022 at 9:21 am

    You should take a trip to Lake St Clair. We live on a river that feeds the lakes.

  37. The Blues Travelers on November 24, 2022 at 9:21 am

    Nice video! There’s just something about being on a lake, those both look inviting.

  38. Jason Albertson on November 24, 2022 at 9:24 am

    How warm was the water at Torch Lake and what time of year did you go? Thanks for the video!

  39. paul smith on November 24, 2022 at 9:25 am

    Great job I really enjoyed your video…. It’s not crazy like most of the one on here with crazy screen shots zapping back and forth and crazy load music… Great Job.

  40. Lucky Dawg Productions Moderator on November 24, 2022 at 9:26 am

    My cousin has a cabin near Traverse City. We used to go right past Higgins Lake whenever we went up to the cabin with them. Gorgeous area. Love Michigan. Great drone footage and under water footage. Fantastic video, Harold and Cindy!

  41. cash storeone on November 24, 2022 at 9:26 am

    I would bet that if you thought that anyone who owned property on Torch lake is a millionaire, you would be right.

  42. blessed beyond on November 24, 2022 at 9:30 am
