Overview

Overview

Shadow Bay Campground rests on the shores of Waldo Lake in a forest of towering conifers. This large recreation area provides plenty of things to see and do like sailing, canoeing, fishing and swimming.

Natural Features:

Shadow Bay Campground is located on a large bay at the south end of Waldo Lake. It is considerably more wet than either North Waldo or Islet Campground, supporting a more diverse and prolific ground cover, and also more mosquitos.

Waldo Lake spans 6,240 acres and boasts nice sandy beaches. The lake lies in the Willamette National Forest, which stretches 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range.

Recreation:

Waldo Lake is circled by the Jim Weaver Loop, a 20-mile hiking and biking trail. The Shoreline Trail lines the lakeside of the campground and takes hikers and bikers to a network of other trails. From there, hikers can continue into the Waldo Lake Wilderness, but mountain bikers are not allowed in that section.

The lake offers boating, swimming and fishing. Anglers enjoy catching brook and rainbow trout. A boat ramp is located on-site.

Facilities:

The campground is less busy than its neighboring campground, North Waldo, resulting in a quieter atmosphere. Garbage containers and gray water disposal areas are available at the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Explore Waldo Lake and surrounding hiking trails for views of the snow-capped North, Middle and South Sisters, three of the seven major peaks in Willamette National Forest.
