County Road H-58 runs between Munising and Grand Marais and provides easy access to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore which has campgrounds of its own. The road in this area used to be sand until about 10 years ago. The road has been since re-engineered to accommodate large and heavy rigs while providing an easy and pleasant drive. There are many State Forest Campgrounds within easy reach of H-58 and I think Kingston Lake is the best that road has to offer. The campground is located on a peninsula of the lake so every site has close access to the shore.

The site I chose was level within two degrees which was remedied by plastic blocks. A windstorm passed through the week before that left many limbs and larger branches that are easy enough to gather to feed the campfire. Water in State Forest Campgrounds is from a well with a hand pump. The water from those wells meets state sanitation standards. Trash containers are present.

This is a very basic campground, but if you are not worried about power or cell service (No Verizon coverage, and I doubt any other carrier would work) it looks to be a great spot. All the spots seem to be nicely laid out, most have lake views and are very shady. There are 2 sets of vault toilets, and I only saw one water station, there is also a boat launch and a hiking trail that connects down to the North Country Trail. I didn't notice any signs on that particular trail, but No Pets are allowed on the NCT (pretty lame since most of the hikes in the area use sections of it to complete loops)
