Pass through the welcome arch at Moran State Park on Orcas Island, and time begins to slow. You’ll find yourself in a Northwest island frame of mind, free to relax, breathe and head into the vast, varied terrain.
Hike, cycle or drive to the summit of Mount Constitution for expansive views of the San Juan archipelago. Climb the historic stone tower on the mountaintop for an even grander view. Enjoy the park’s five lakes, where you can swim, kayak, stand up paddle or fish for rainbow trout. Explore Moran’s 38 miles of hiking trails, or take a trail ride on your favorite bike or with your trusted horse. Stroll through a natural preserve to spot birds and wildlife.
Set up camp under the stars, or enjoy “glamping” in a luxury platform tent. Wind down by the lake with a good book, or venture back in time with a closer look at the park’s structures, more than 20 of which were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression.
Whether it’s a day trip or an extended stay, Moran State Park offers a chance to refresh, renew and expand your horizons.
Moran State Park is 5,424-acres and offers abundant camping (151 sites), five freshwater lakes for swimming and non-motorized boating and more than 30 miles of hiking, bicycling, mountain biking and equestrian trails. Mount Constitution stands 2,409 feet above sea level.
