North Waldo Picnic Area and Boat Launch are located adjacent to the North Waldo Campground, the most popular of the Waldo Lake campgrounds. Expect mosquitoes between June and August.
The boat launch is somewhat deeper than the others on the lake, accommodating larger sailboats. North Waldo is also a popular starting point for many wilderness trails and lakes, most notably the Rigdon, Wahanna and Torrey Lakes.
The 1-mile Shoreline Trail between North Waldo and Islet Campgrounds provides a short and pleasant hike along the lakeshore.
