I'm new to Oregon and am looking for a great place to take my girlfriend and her 8 yr old son on a fishing/canoeing/camping trip this weekend. Ideally I'd like to find a lake that I could load the canoe with all our gear and find our own campsite. I really wanted to go to Waldo because I had read that I could find that kind of camping and I checked out some of the posts on OFF and it sounds like the perfect lake but I'm affraid the mosquitos will be too much for the little guy. I'm also concerned that the fourth of july weekend might be a little crazy for a lot of lakes. I live in Portland but don't mind driving up to 4 hrs for the right place. So i guess I'm looking for a gorgeous lake with primitive campsites and good fishing that won't be packed with people or mosquitos this weekend. Maybe i'm dreaming but I figure its worth a shot. I bought my canoe eight weeks ago and have already hit 6 different lakes and haven't gotten skunked once. Not trying to brag...just absolutely loving the state of Oregon.
