RALPH A. MACMULLEN CONFERENCE CENTER, EDUCATIONS PROGRAMS DEVELOPER With rustic lodging and modern meeting space, the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center (RAM Center) combines the fun of summer camp with the facilities of a premier conference center. Nestled on the northern shore of Higgins Lake inside the boundaries of North Higgins Lake State Park and adjacent to the Iron Belle Trail and the Civilian Conservation Corp Museum, this conference center has a legacy of conservation education and offers one of the most distinctive meeting experiences in Michigan's northern woods. Reservations are limited to nonprofit, government, and education-based organizations, as well as private businesses with an outdoor or green-themed agenda. The audience of the RAM Center was expanded to include individuals and small groups seeking outdoor education experiences.
