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.

To Reach Us.....
Blueberries jpg

Frost Pond Camps is located 3 miles in, after turning off the Golden Road.

We are 35 miles from Millinocket.  Exit 244 on I95 and turn left.  Go to the end of route 157 and turn right, following the signs towards Baxter State Park. At the Northwoods Trading Post and Ambejejus Lake, cross over to the “Golden” road. Continue in the same direction but do not follow the signs to Baxter State Park from this point on.  Look for signs to Frost Pond Camps and Ripogenus Dam after about 20 miles. Take the right, at the height of the land, onto the unpaved road. Continue until you see the house up on the hill directly in front of you; bear right down over the hill and across the dam. Continue to Frost Pond Camps! You can expect to arrive in about 1 hour from Millinocket.

We are 45 miles from Greenville, go straight through town. Take the Lily Bay Rd to Kokadjo, (Do not take Route 15 towards Rockwood)  Just past Kokadjo, the road will turn to dirt. You need to take a pretty hard left after leaving the pavement and continue on the dirt road until you reach the “Golden” road, Turn right towards Millinocket. Look for signs to Frost Pond Camps about one mile after you drive down the hill beside Ripogenus Lake. (About 5 or 6 miles from where you hit the paved road again)  This is a real hard left that comes up fast, so after you pass our sign slow down for the turn.  Continue until you see the house up on the hill directly in front of you; bear right down over the hill and drive across the dam. Continue to Frost Pond Camps!

You can expect to arrive in about 1-½ hours from Greenville.

We are located in a working forest open to recreational use. For safety reasons ATV’s bicycles and motorcycles are prohibited on all roads. Please drive carefully and pull off the road when stopping, you must yield the right-of-way to trucks.

Many GPS units will not bring you to camp!  If your are coming in through Greenville and try to use some of them they may try to  take you on roads that are not passable, even in a 4 wheel drive.

Any GPS that tells you to go on the Telos road will also get you very confused and waste an enormous amount of time and gasoline.  You have to drive across Ripogenus Dam to reach us. The road in from the Telos road has been closed since 2004, even though the truck drivers still have it labeled as the "Frost Pond Road" The people who made the GPS maps have never been in this part of the world to see that just because a map shows a road, does not mean  that it is in fact still there or even passable.

If you are coming in from Millinocket (My recommendation) and are using a GPS, use Ripogenus Dam as your destination. (But still do not go up the Telos Road!) Once you get to the dam, drive across the dam and do not turn back until you reach Frost Pond.  It is only 2.5 miles from the dam, so check your odometer at the dam.  It really is only 2.5 miles in to camp, but because of the speed you are going and the fact that it is a camp road it seems much further.
