This camp is located at the north end of Waldo Lake and offers wonderful sandy beaches. Western winds consistently blow each afternoon, offering respite from early season mosquitoes. 

The 1-mile Shoreline Trail between Islet and North Waldo Campground provides a short and pleasant hike along the lakeshore. Mosquitoes are typically intense from June to mid-August so come prepared.
