Frog Lake Camp
Frog Lake

Probably the most popular destination within 2 miles of headquarters, this spring-fed former cattle pond of the old ranching days offers a pleasant, shady place to relax and enjoy nature. 

The pond is home to a few frogs and the fish are often hard to catch due to floating vegetation, but the one-acre pond is quiet and peaceful, a good place for watching acorn woodpeckers and other birds. The 1 backpacking site is along Hobbs Road near the outhouse.
