Frog Lake History

In the 1930s, Felix and Martha Smith purchased the Frog Lake property from the railroad for their three sons and future grandchildren to enjoy. The rustic architectural style of Frog Lake Lodge is similar to that of Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood, Oregon, which also was built in the 1930s. Going up to Frog Lake each summer became a Smith family tradition that continues to this day. We invite you to share in that tradition.
