I remember reading a dungeon that involved either undead or vampiric toads as the final encounter. Now I can't find it again. Does anyone know what it was?

I know it was from one of the OSR-type blogs, any it was probably written for Labyrinth Lord or Swords & Wizardry. I think it might have been in the One Page Dungeon format.

It was a fairly standard cave-system dungeon crawl, with bandits and so on, but at the far end, there were a pair of vampire toads, who lurked in a dark pool.

Any ideas?

You are almost certainly thinking of "The Fane of St. Toad" from the Society of Torch, Pole, and Rope; it's a memorial to Dave Arneson and designed to be slotted into the Temple of the Frog.

I know I'm a bit late, but I just spent an afternoon looking for the same thing, so I'm posting it: The Charmed Grotto, by Dyson Logos

I know this is most probably not the answer you're looking for, but I've just seen this and remembered your question, so here's a link to an image depicting Giant Vampire Frogs:

This specific creature seems to have been made up by a certain Alan Fomorin and it appeared first in Dragon #50, from where it went on, apparently, to be a lesser known Internet meme.
