This campground is located in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, which covers a large area, has many campgrounds and hiking/biking trails. We picked this campground do to it being more remote than most of the others in the area and the large amount of hiking trails in the area. Although it was the most remote it was still only about 15 minutes from three towns of which Boulder Junction was our favorite. You have to travel down a gravel road for about 2 miles to get to the campground, but the campground roads were all paved, which we like because it cuts down on the dust. There are 43 sites in this campground with about 15 right next to the lake. The lake is restricted to electric motors or hand paddles only which keeps it quite. We stayed in site 1304,1305,1306 and 1344, 1340 which are all sites next to the lake with great views. We think 1305 and 1304 are the best sites in the campground. Most of the sites were the most private ones we saw yet, due to the woods between them. All sites were first come first serve, have no electric for water hook up. The campground had dumpsters, band new pit toilets and hand pumps, for water. Crystal Lake, which was about 5 miles away had water and three dump stations. The camp hosts are great.

I did fish a few times on Starrett, Frank and Escanaba lakes and caught enough Northern for a meal one night. The water was nice and warn, so the dogs and I were able to go for a swim. The bottom of the lake was sandy. There are tons of trails in the area, our favorite were the Escanaba trails which have four loops ranging from 5-8 miles. We hiked about 35 miles of trails with the dogs, which were able to run off leash.

So far this is our second favorite campsite with Two Medicine in Glacier National Park being number one.
