Overview

Frog Lake Campground is a beautiful and somewhat rustic campground on Frog Lake. It provides access to enjoyable outdoor activities, including fishing and leisurely canoeing on the calm, mountain lake.

Natural Features:

The campground is located between the highway and Frog Lake at an elevation of 3,800 feet, just past the town of Government Camp in Mt. Hood National Forest. The small campground is situated in a heavily forested area, where the sounds of frogs are heard at night.

Recreation:

Frog Lake covers 10 acres and is open to fishing, swimming, canoeing and non-motorized boating. Anglers can expect a catch of rainbow trout. Picnicking is available at the campground's day use area, which provides access to the boat ramp.

A hiking trail leads east, up Frog Lake Buttes, as does an unimproved forest road, which is open to mountain biking and high-clearance off-road vehicles. The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail passes just north of the campground, off Forest Road 2610.

Facilities:

The campground offers nearly three dozen single-family sites for tent and RV camping, though RVs over 22 feet are not recommended. Utility hookups are not available. Parking surfaces are gravel and dirt and may be irregular in shape.

Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided throughout the campground. Firewood is available for purchase from the campground host.

Nearby Attractions:

The Sno-Park at Frog Lake is about 12 miles east of Government Camp. It provides trail access to Twin Lakes and Frog Lake Butte. The latter trail is closed to snowmobiles during February.

Know Before You Go
  • In accordance with standard industry practices, Mount Hood Recreation will be assessing a $8 additional vehicle fee on the 'second vehicle' in each single family campsite, and on the 'third and fourth vehicle' in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as one vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
  • Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
