The Frog Lake and Pines State Natural Area offers the visitor an off-the-beaten-path Northwoods experience. After traveling a few yards past the parking area, a left turn will take you to Frog Lake and a right turn will take you to the Manitowish River.  The short path to the 42 acre wilderness lake is wide and easily navigable, unlike the longer path to the river, which is narrow and unmarked. The river path leads you under towering pines and maples, over downed trees, and through patches of blueberries and ferns before bringing you to a hike-in campsite on the riverbank of the Manitowish.  A compass or GPS is advised for this hike.
