Formed by glaciers 10,000 years ago, Waldo Lake is one of the purest lakes in the world. Filled by springs and snow melt, there is little plankton. Fish stocked with kokanee, cutthroat and rainbow trout until 1991. The bottom can be visible on a calm day through 100 ft (30 m) of indigo water. Gas motors and seaplanes are prohibited. Enjoy the quiet. At 9.8 sq miles (25 km), with a maximum depth of 420 ft (130 m), Waldo Lake is Oregon's second largest natural lake, and second deepest. Day Use Fee Area/Recreation Pass. Three campgrounds with boat ramps.
