This was the first place I headed when I left California in my motor home. I’d read about it. It is a stunningly beautiful, pristine alpine lake and is one of the purest in the world. You can hike as little or as much as you want on the lake trail or a trail that leads to another lake about two miles beyond it. The campground roads are paved so are good for biking. My big regret is that I did not have a kayak at the time. The camp host was friendly and attentive. I did not use the bathrooms so cannot speak to their cleanliness. My site was adequate for my 31’ rig and fairly level. I saw larger rigs there as well as well as tents. There is NO cell service whatsoever.

Ok, let’s get the not so good out of the way first.

There is NO cell service
There is NO RV dump
Sites are rough - this is a National Forest Campground
Bathrooms are just composting toilets
June and July the mosquitos hatch
Would not recommend anything over 35’

So why come to North Waldo
Second largest lake in Oregon
Water is so clear you can see down 200 feet
Water is an amazing blue (depending on sunlight)
Kayaking was fantastic
20 mile bike/hike trail around lake
Road was completely paved to the campground
