“Wonderful Waldo Lake.”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2016

Overall Rating

Waldo Lake is one of the largest natural lakes in Oregon. With over 100 feet visibility, it's 2nd only to Crater Lake in purity. The lake is closed to all motor boats which makes it incredible for paddle sports and small sailboats. I've been coming here for over 40 years with my family and consider a very special place. The only downside is that the season is very short (opens in June and closes at the end of September). The mosquitoes can be be fierce in June and July.

Of the three campgrounds (Shadow Bay, Islet, and North Waldo) North Waldo is our favorite. Unfortunately the sites suitable for RVs are limited and were occupied so we stayed at Islet a mile away which is still very nice. The price is a little steep for no services but the campgrounds are very well maintained. If you score a spot on the lake the price will seem like a bargain.

The hiking and moutain biking are awesome up here. Cell service with Verizon and AT&T is spotty to non-existent.
