Wonderful sandy beaches for swimming and easy canoe access. Lots of moose tracks along the beach, but sadly we didn't have any sightings while we were there. This is a great site, and unfortunately is suffering from overuse. Lots of braiding, trampled vegetation, and soil compaction. There are many tent pads, but all suffer from cupping and there is generally a lot flooding of the site in the rain.

Huge site with nice sloping rocky shoreline and lots of options for tents and hammocks. Good views of the lake and great little beach adjacent to the site.

A decent site with a pleasant rock outcropping and tent pads back in the woods. The fire spot is just okay and our biggest complaint was a loud drunk group fishing not far off from the site all afternoon that really dampened our experience.

The main landing is rocky, but overall a very nice site with awesome views of Frost Lake! We had plenty of room with 2 tents and 2 hammocks. Found moose tracks on the beach, but no moose sightings for us :(

This would be a great site if the tent pads were not overused and bowl-shaped. This is easily the best site on Frost with good landings, nice fire area, a beach, and a great view of the lake from this point. We enjoyed this site for a couple hours as we baked a lake trout shore lunch. The site provided great shelter from the cool north wind.

A couple of nice landings, one well protected back around the point. Well sheltered fire grate area, yet offers good views with ample room to roam & fish along the rocky shoreline. The tent pads are decent but, appear to be bowl shaped. There is a beautiful beach just north of the main camping area, easily within walking distance.
