Join Us For Our 2014 Waldo Campout Weekend!

August 15 to 17, Waldo Lake Car Campout and Hiking Weekend

Shadow Bay Campground

Shadow BayShadow Bay Campsite

The 2014 Waldo Weekend Campout will be held August 15-17, Friday-Sunday, at the Shadow Bay Campground on the southern end of the lake. Group Site B, Sites 25 thru 43, is reserved for Friday and Saturday nights and will accommodate 60 to 120 people.

Because of the significant cost of reserving the Group campsite, you are being asked to pay $20 per adult  and $10 per child 17 and under for the entire weekend (two nights).

Your party will also be asked to share a campsite with other parties unless you have a large number (more than six) in your party. The campground has the usual Forest Service toilet and drinking water facilities, but no showers or electrical hookups.

There are additional single campsites available that accommodate 6 people each for $20 per night per campsite. You can reserve these campsites (you pay) through the - Shadow Bay website. However, as of May 9, they all appear to be reserved. Other sites may be available at Shadow Bay on a first-come basis, and there are two other campgrounds at Waldo Lake: Islet and North Waldo.

Legal Stuff

Each participant will be asked to sign the Sierra Club Sign-in Sheet and Liability Waiver form when you arrive for the Campout Weekend. Also, if there are children in your party, we will ask the accompanying adult to sign a Individual Liability Waiver for Minors. And while Shadow Bay Campground is not all that remote, it is many miles from the nearest medical facility, so if you have a significant medical problem, please let us know. We may ask you to fill out our Medical Form so we are fully aware of your condition and it's implications for our planned activities.

Thank you for letting us know you'll be camping with us at Waldo Lake. We'll be in touch soon.
