This campground is located at the north end of Waldo Lake and offers wonderful sandy beaches. The winds consistently blow each afternoon, offering a cool break from the summer sun. A picnic table located on the rock jetty is a great spot to enjoy a peaceful evening watching the sun set. The 1-mile Shoreline Trail between Islet and North Waldo Campground provides a short and pleasant hike along the lakeshore. 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.
