The Hot Spring:
Frog Pond is a good place to cool off during the hot summer days in the Black Rock Desert. An artesian well with at least 10-15 gallons per minute of about 101 degree F water and keeps most of the pool in the high 90's. A small wooden deck and wooden stairs have been built to get into the pool and there is a metal fire place for wind. The pond creates it own little ecosystem in a very arid area with trees creating lots of shade, and the overflow pond is a haven for frogs, hence the name Frog Pond. There is a lot of camping on site and it is obviously used but it is on private property. Private Property signs are on the gate from the road (which is usually open) to keep out most people, but if you are respectful and kind we were told the owners don't mind if you enjoy their pond. Frog Pond is not in any hot spring books probably because of the Private Property signs so please keep the place clean so the owner continues to be so kind and don't lock the gate.
