Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Located 8 miles south of Mount Hood, Frog Lake is a modest, 10-acre body of water with picturesque views of the volcano.  The Frog Lake campground is set on the northern end of the lake, and although no campsites offer direct views of the lake or of Mount Hood, it is only a short stroll before you are near the clearing of the lake.

While camping, you can enjoy basking in the sun along the lake's western shore, a picnic in the day-use area on the southern shore, or a relaxing paddle.  Additionally, if you walk back toward the highway you will find the trailhead for Twin Lakes.  This 6 mile day hike follows the Pacific Crest Trail, and it is the perfect, active alternative to simply lounging around this relaxing subalpine lake.  Also consider climbing the 1,400 feet to the cleared summits of Frog Lake Buttes to gain expansive views of the entire region.
