It is highly suggested that you RSVP to the event leader.   The purpose of this club is for networking and social.  Leaders are volunteer and not trained or responsible for your safety. Trips can be canceled/changed so RSVP is important.  You must always wear a PDF at all times and carry a whistle.

Waldo Lake, in the Oregon Cascades south of the Three Sisters, is the second largest natural lake in Oregon and like our largest lake, Crater Lake, its waters come from below it and the result is an intense blue color and you can see clearly hundreds of feet below you. With a shoreline of 23 miles there are plenty of places to paddle. No motor boats are allowed making it a paddling paradise

Launch Location:
Waldo Lake is a 3 hour drive from Portland. Parking is at the Shadow Lake Campground. From Oakridge, proceed east on Hwy 58 for 25 miles to the Waldo Lake Road (FS Road 5897). Continue on Waldo Lake Road for 6 1/2 miles to the Shadow Bay turnoff. Follow signs to Shadow Bay Campground.

Notes:
You must pack and kayak to the campsite. It is not reachable by car or hike. YOU MUST RSVP for the specific location. One of two locations will be chosen based on RSVPs.  No beginners or recreational kayaks should cross the lake unattended.  Leaders will arrange meeting times at the boat launch for those unfamiliar with the location. It is a 40 minute paddle to the campsite. We will be camping at primitive campsites that are only accessible by kayak, so you must pack your gear in the kayak. This is a remote location. RSVP is mandatory

Rentals:    
There is no rental at the launch location.  Must transport kayak.  Check to see if they will strap to our car.
