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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I just couldn’t get over hearing the semi trucks on 26. But… There’s a nice view of Hood on the south side of the lake. Vault toilets. It was July, bugs were not bad. There were a tons of baby frogs everywhere on the northside of the lake, it was crazy to see. Good hiking nearby.
Can't hear the highway and the lake is beautiful, but you can't see the mountain from the campground side.
Nice hike around the lake but the bugs are horrible!!
This small campground is a great alternative to the busier campgrounds found near by. It does not have the views of Mt. Hood like the pictures show, the views of Hood can be found at the day use area on the opposite side of the lake. There is a great trail that goes all the way around the lake and offers plenty of little spots to stop and fish. The spots were plenty large enough and had enough space between them to offer privacy from your neighbors. If you are not able to book a spot in the busier campgrounds near by this is a great alternative.
My grandparents used to take us camping here long time ago. Then the rest of the entire family started going too. Im 51 yrs old now nd still love the feeling of tadpoles between my toes lol. The lake is calm nd shallow for a long ways so kids can play safely all day. Safe trail around the lake and u can hear ur kids for long distances. Miss camping here nd think i will try to soon.
It's a fun campground with a lake. I remember having a blast when I camped there. Sites are close to each other. Had an awesome time.
millions of tadpoles in the water and twice as many baby frogs on the north side of the lake by the swamp. warm water, not deep at all. beautiful view of mt hood
like clear lake, frog lake provides a place away from crowds as campsites are limited. family friendly and a perfect places to swim with a little view of mt hood.
I have not camped here but we go up and spend the day often. The facilities are clean and well kept. The best part about this place is the tiny frogs you catch. The ground literally moves with them!
I have been here a few times there is always campsites available and it’s a great place to camp I love catching fish all the time and it’s super fun for kids and once you go you will find out why it’s named frog lake
