    I will miss this one, sadly. I will be hiking in the Olympics during that time. I guess someone else will have to bring the good stuff.

    Great location. I made my first ever hang there last year on my birthday (September 11) and there were still Mosquitos o'plenty even that late in the year.
    I would definitely bring some bug netting to play it safe.
    I'll be there too, looking forward to it.
    Is there going to be a snoring section away from the main group of hangers? If so, reserve a spot for me.

    Here are traveling directions:

    Waldo lake is located 58 miles southeast of Eugene. About 10 miles off of highway 58. Waldo Lake is surrounded by the Waldo Lake wilderness area, the northern border of Waldo Lake Wilderness is the southern border of the very popular Three Sisters Wilderness.

    From The North (Portland, Eugene, Salem) -- Take I-5 South Until Hwy 58 exit 5 miles south of Eugene, Travel on Hwy 58 East for 70 miles, About 40 miles past Oakridge take a left onto waldo lake rd #5897. The first campground (shadow bay) is the first turnoff (about 8 miles down Waldo Lake Road) The last turnoff (12 miles down Waldo Lake Road) is to both Islet and North Waldo campgrounds.

    From The South (Roseburg, Medford, Grants Pass)-- Travel North on I-5 until Hwy 58 exit towards Oakridge (this exit will be about 5 miles south of Eugene). Travel on HWY 58 East for 70 miles, about 40 miles past Oakridge take a left onto waldo lake rd # 5897. The first campground is shadow bay (8 miles down Waldo lake Road) the last turnoff (12 miles down Waldo Lake Road is to both Islet and North Waldo campgrounds.

    From the east (Bend, Madras, Redmond) -- Travel on HWY 97 (south if from Bend Madras or Redmond) until the Chemult intersection with HWY 58, then travel west for 55 miles on HWY 58, 15 miles past Willamette pass turn right onto Waldo Lake Rd # 5897. The first campground is shadow bay (8 miles down Waldo lake Road) the last turnoff (12 miles down Waldo Lake Road is to both Islet and North Waldo campgrounds.

    Camping

    Waldo Lake is supports 3 Large Campgrounds. All have boat ramps, water, bathrooms, and gravel trails. They are also handicapped accessable.

    Shadow Bay Campground. Known for the bay that is the center of the campground. The bay has a sandy bottom and is good for swimming. On sunny days the water is usually a teal color and is comparable to water colors common at Caribbean beaches.

    Islet Campground. Known for a point that extends 150 yards into the lake. There is a gravel trail out to the point where there are two benches with great views of the lake.

    North Waldo Campground. The lake's most popular campground. This campground is close to the burn area from a recent wildfire in the 1996 Charlton fire which burned a large area on the north shore of the lake. North Waldo campground is home to the Waldo Lake Ampitheatre where speakers are present about once a week during summer months.

    I plan on taking a trip down there sometime in the next few months to check out the three campgrounds and see which ones will work best for our group hang.
