Important Notice
The Maine Legislature has banned the bringing of firewood into Maine.
(Sec. 1. 12 MRSA § 8307)
    Also the practice of transporting firewood for a distance of more than 50 miles from home, even within the state is discouraged.
This is due to the threat of invasive insects that are transported in the firewood.
     Out of respect for the landowner and the north woods, we no longer allow firewood to be brought into camp in order to protect the forest from invasive insects.
     We do have firewood for sale at the office. For more information please click on the link.

Welcome to Frost Pond Camps
Loons jpg

Come Enjoy...
a step back in time when everyday living followed a calmer, quieter pace. Frost Pond Camps is a remote, yet very accessible Maine Sporting Camp surrounded by numerous waterways and rugged forests.
We are located 35 miles from Millinocket Maine, 45 miles from Greenville Maine, 3 miles off the Golden Road. If you are looking for a cabin to rent near Baxter State Park, we are located just West of the park. Many of our guests find it a pleasant drive for a day of hiking or fishing in the park.
Our guests also enjoy fishing the West Branch of the Penobscot River, which you must cross at Ripogenus Dam to reach Camp.
For a fishing, hunting, vacationing, or just a cabin to relax at, come visit us at Frost Pond Camps!

Fish for Trout in Frost Pond or Salmon in the West Branch. Hunt  Grouse in a great location, hunt Moose in zone 4 by permit and still hunt bear during the fall bear season.

Come and see Mt. Katahdin and Moose....
Isn't it time you experienced a sunset at Frost Pond?

Our five housekeeping cabins and two bunkhouses are set on the edge of a clear, glacial formed, spring-fed pond. We accommodate up to 25 guests for fly fishing, family outdoor adventure, nature and eco-tourism as well as unique hunting experiences. Our traditional north woods waterfront cabins are tastefully appointed in vintage decor. Each cabin is spaciously scattered among the trees and lawn on the waterfront for all to enjoy the privacy and remoteness of our location. 

Quietly isolated a short distance from our rental cabins are our ten waterfront campsites, each along the shore of the pond. Woods and waters in all directions provide a variety of activities for a relaxing and refreshing vacation in Maine's north woods.

  • Visit the Ghost Trains on Eagle Lake

  • Hike into the nearby Ice Caves at First Debsconeag Lake

  • Canoeing/kayaking quiet water frequented by moose

Frost Pond is located thirty-five miles from the town of Millinocket, in the beautiful area of Mount Katahdin and the West Branch of the Penobscot River, three miles in-across Ripogenus Dam. Known as the Katahdin Forest Project, this is a sustainably harvested working forest under the protection of a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy and Katahdin Timberlands, LLC. This project connects together conservation lands in the northern Appalachian boreal forest including the West Branch of the Penobscot, Debsconeag Lakes, Baxter State Park and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.

With the comfort of a cabin or for those who enjoy camping, you will find that your stay at Frost Pond is one that will add wonderful memories to your life! Come and listen to the loons and the sound of large trout slapping the water as they rise for the latest hatch.
As your hosts, it is our goal to make your memories of your stay the very best possible. Thanks for visiting!
