  • Lake Jeanette is a campground located just off the Echo Trail near Buyck, MN Located between Crane Lake and Orr. This campground is located on the western end of the Echo Trail, a remote country road that traverses through the heart of the western Superior National Forest. It is situated on the southern shore of Lake Jeanette and provides scenic views of the lake. The terrain is covered with a granite rock outcropping and a mix of pine and spruce trees. This area was once the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp which operated in the 1930s.

    Directions:

    Lake Jeanette Campground is on the Echo Trail, 32 miles northeast of Orr, MN.

    • From Orr, take St. Louis County 23 to Buyck (16 miles).
    • At Buyck, County 23 turns into County 24. Continue on County 24 for 4 miles to the Echo Trail (County Road 116).
    • Turn right, 12 miles to campground entrance road.
    • Turn left onto entrance road.

    The Astrid Lake Hiking Trail begins across from the first parking lot on the right-hand side of the campground entrance road. A second trailhead is located off Forest Road 200. 

    This campground offers camping beside a glacier carved Lake Jeanette. Every site has a view of the lake. The campground is only lightly wooded with spruce and has an open, spacious feeling. This is a sweet, picturesque, little campground, well worth the long drive. The two walk-in tent sites in a stand of jack pines are perhaps the prettiest in the forest.
