The Jeanette State Forest is a state forest located in St. Louis County, Minnesota. The forest is within the limits of the Superior National Forest, and thus falls under the federal jurisdiction and management of the United States Forest Service.[2]

Camping is available in the Superior National Forest at the Lake Jeanette Campground. Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, the campground is located in a stand of pine and northern hardwoods overlooking Lake Jeanette.[3]
