GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 1,180 ft. This is a small single loop campground, originally built by the CCC in the 1930s, located on a peninsula reaching into the glacier-carved Lake Jeanette. Most sites have a view of the lake and some are on the lake. The campground is wooded with a pleasant mix of hardwoods and pine providing shade for most sites. The understory of fern, wildflowers and grass is kept under control by mowing, giving the campground a manicured appearance. There are two walk-in tent sites with a nearby "open air" vault. Glacial "erratics" (massive boulders) left behind by the receding glacier, give the campground character and a place for moss to grow. The campsites are close together providing only fair privacy except for walk-in sites which enjoy excellent privacy. This is a sweet, picturesque little campground well worth the long drive. Lake Jeanette is not the largest lake in the forest nor the most isolated but it feels like it is both. The winding shoreline and islands make Lake Jeanette a great place to explore in a canoe or kayak. Created long ago by a massive glacier, this lake is considered by many to be a special location.
