This large recreation area provides plenty of things to see and do like hiking, biking, sailing, canoeing, ﬁshing and swimming.
Shadow Bay Campground is located on a large bay at the south end of Waldo Lake. Situated high on the western slopes of the Oregon Cascades at 5,400 feet in elevation, Waldo Lake is one of the purest lakes in Oregon. It has no permanent inlet to bring nutrients into the lake for plant growth. The lack of plant life contributes to its purity, allowing you to see to depths of 120 feet on a calm day. Waldo Lake is circled by the Jim Weaver Loop, a 22-mile hiking and biking trail. The Shoreline Trail lines the lakeside of the campground and takes hikers and bikers to a network of other trails. From there, hikers can continue into the Waldo Lake Wilderness, but mountain bikes are not allowed in Wilderness. The lake offers boating (electric motors only) and swimming. A boat ramp is located on-site.
