North Waldo Campground


Road leading to water's edge with several sailboats moored nearby

North Waldo is the most popular of the Waldo Lake Campgrounds. The drier environment supports fewer mosquitoes, but they are still plentiful in season.

The boat launch is somewhat deeper than the others on the lake, which is more accommodating for large 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 provides a short and pleasant hike along the lakeshore.
