Frog Lake Campground Description

Frog lake campground is located off of highway 26 in the Mt. Hood National Forest about a mile south of the Pacific Crest Trail.  The campground got its name from the hordes of small frogs that appear there in late summer.  The road into Frog Lake is short but rough so take it slow.

The lake itself is small and shallow and not great for anything more than maybe a canoe or paddle board.  Excellent views of Mt. Hood can be seen from the day use area on the South Side of the lake – opposite from the campground.

The campground area is nestled in the forest and the nearest site to the lake shore is about 100 yards away.  There are 33 sites of which most if not all can be reserved ahead of time online.  The toilets are vaulted pits and there is potable water available from old pumps.  Most campsites are spaced out well, have ample parking and plenty of privacy.

  1. While we loved the scenery and the campground facilities, the lake and campground are not–again, not–insulated from highway sounds. In fact, after the first night we, and everyone around us, looked like zombies from waking multiple times a night from jake braking by several semis on the nearby highway. The second night was much better as we invested $2.00 in some earplugs.

    Good for tent camping with ear plugs. Better for RV camping. Beautiful setting though–can’t beat that.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I have never camped here – only stopped by to visit the day use area. The views of Mt. Hood are amazing but I can imagine the trucks using their compression braking could drive you nuts. Hope it wasn’t too bad!

  2. I drove by this campground today on the way back from Timothy Lake Campgrounds and Detroit Campgrounds. We stopped to get some gas about a mole from the entrance to Frog Lake Campground and the lady said that they had just stocked the lake with fish. Timothy Lake was very bad for bank fishing cuz of all the ricks and shallow water. I noticed nothing was said about the fishing at Frog Lake, , , how is it? Was wondering about coming back sometime to try my hand there. Thanks a lot ,

  3. What’s the best time of year to visit Frog Lake to see the “invasion” of zillions of frogs? I was lucky to be there in the past one time, but I don’t remember what time of year I was there. Since then I’ve stopped several times but no frogs. TIA

  4. Just spent two nights at Frog Lake to escape the Fourth of July fireworks. It is a well-kept campground and the host, David, was super friendly and even organized a children’s talent show on the 4th. My site (#7) was very small but most are pretty spacious, though not a lot of privacy overall. The lake is easily accessible but as expected the water level was really low, leaving a muddy shore to navigate and wade through. Overall a nice experience, good for families. Special shout out to David for helping jump my car after my battery died. My hero!

  5. Would love to catch the frog invasion here someday? Would you or anyone else happen to know the best time?
