Great for boating and hiking

Clear Lake is absolutely gorgeous with its crystal clear water. Not ideal for swimming as the temperatures sit around 50 degrees year-round, but non-motorized boats are welcome. There are row boats available for renting at reasonable prices at the other end of the lake. The campground has easy access to the trail leading around the lake. The nearest town (Sisters) is about a half hour away, and then another 30ish minutes to Bend/Redmond, all of which provide plenty of activities. In general, the entire area is filled with plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy!

Clean and Quiet

Waldo Lake is a fantastic choice for any non-motorized boaters, as motors are banned. We took our kayaks out onto the large crystal clear lake where you can see straight to the bottom. Since there are no motored boats, the lake and campground were very quiet and peaceful. There is also an extensive trail around the lake, which can be followed on foot or bike. Nearby are more hikes and lakes (Crescent Lake allows for motored boats). Salt Creek Falls is just down the highway and makes for an excellent day hike. Would definitely recommend North Waldo for a relaxing camping trip.
