The mosquito population is high from June to mid-August and can be quite bothersome, so be prepared.

One of Oregons Best
Waldo lake is both an amazing lake and a hub for an enormous trail system. Waldo Lake Trail is one of the best mountain bike rides in the Northwest. Campground is clean with trash and water. Early season mosquitoes are pretty bad.
