WALDO WEEKEND CAMPOUT

IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is cross-posted here as a courtesy to our sister group on the east side of the mountains.  Please see instructions below for sign-up procedure.  RSVP for this Meetup posting will not register you for the event!

 

 

Join us at Shadow Bay Group Campsite at Waldo Lake!

 

Are you ready to become a Waldonian? This campout will introduce you to Waldo Lake and treat you to the wondrous attractions of Waldo and other wild lakes, old growth forests of Hemlock, Doug Fir and pine, a sky full of stars, and nature at its best. This Oregon treasure is in our own backyard!

A YES RSVP ON MEETUP DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THE CAMPOUT.  Go to our “Waldo Weekend Campout” web page here for more information on the campout and information on how to register here.

We hope you’ll become as excited about preserving the area east and south of Waldo Lake as we are with our Keep Waldo Wild campaign to permanently protect about 76,000 acres here.

Our Shadow Bay Group Campsite will accommodate a good-sized group. Check-in Friday between 2-7 pm. We'll have orientation Friday night, sign-up for hikes, and briefly tell you about our Keep Waldo Wild campaign.

A variety of hikes are offered on Saturday and Sunday of varying distances and difficulty. There's a 22-mile trail around Waldo Lake you can explore. Enjoy the quiet, read a book alongside the lakefront. Or plan your own day, bring your bike, boat or kayak, no motors allowed. (Sierra Club accepts no liability for biking, boating or kayaking activities.)

 

We'll have campfires and enjoy a tasty Pot Luck dinner Saturday night. Bring your tent or camper, your food and cooking supplies, binoculars, hiking boots, camera and trekking stick for hikes. Potable water onsite.

 

You'll find lots more details on the Juniper Group web page Waldo Weekend Campout (link here). Go to the registration page here, scroll halfway down the page to sign up for this seriously fun, inspiring weekend! $20 per person for the weekend.

Children are welcome to the campout, though most hikes will be too

difficult for younger children.


A note on Dogs: Dogs are also welcome to camp if trained and quiet. We ask you to tell us if you are bringing a dog so we can keep a running tally of how many dogs are coming, because too many dogs in strange surroundings can make it unpleasant for all, including the dogs. If you want to bring your dog on a hike, each trip leader will want to know about your dog’s training and experience before accepting it on a hike, and we may need to limit the number of dogs on any one hike for everyone's enjoyment and safety. Thanks for understanding.

    Although tent camping is one of my least favorite activities, I was glad to have attended because the Sierra Club put on a really nice weekend of events. I met so many nice people and really enjoyed sharing the long hike to the top of Gerdine Butte. The Saturday evening potluck and presentation was well done and the rain didn't come in until later that night. It could have only been improved by having our camp right on the beautiful lake. Thank you all for making this weekend happen!

    This was my first outing with the Sierra Club. What a great weekend. The people were wonderful. Gretchen and the rest of the organizers did an outstanding job. I am very impressed. I am looking forward to next year.

      Hi Richard - I spoke with Deb Brewer this morn and she said she wished that the "registration is full" hadn't been posted. Sounds like the organizers might need to confer.....?

      August 11, 2013

    • Richard

      It seems not everyone has paid/confirmed yet, so there may end up being a few openings. If more people are interested they can email Deb: I believe she's making an "old-fashioned"­ waiting list. It's been a challenge for the organizers to juggle Meetups in three cities plus sign-up by web and email. In a sense, this is a good problem to have: it looks like we'll have a full camp of Waldonians from several locations. It should be a lot of fun!

    I am bringing my kayak and would like a camp site next to the water along with Lyn Dalstrom.
