We loved this park. The wife and I did a nice 4 mile hike (Mountain Lake), a nice 2 mile hike (Cascade Lake), and drove to the top of Mt. Constitution. You MUST go up there on a clear day, go into the observation tower, and take in the world around you. The view is amazing.

We spent a day and night at Moran State park. There are a few nice lakes, with paths for easy walks around. Many people were swimming or renting paddleboats there, and we even saw a bunch of kids having a blast jumping off the (small) bridge over the lagoon. We hiked up Mt. Constitution, a 7 mile round trip trek... More

Great day spent as a family at Moran State Park! Bring a picnic and hiking shoes as well as a swimsuit and you have yourself an entire day of outdoor fun! Beautiful!

Pros - beautiful setting, clean lake, showers! at the campground, well maintained washrooms, playground for young kids at Cascade Lake, well maintained and marked hiking trails, easy to get around. Cons - campsites are not level, very hilly, beach at Cascade Lake was way too busy for our... More

"A wonderful place in which to forget one's troubles and worries and get back to Naure in her happiest moods." Robert Moran True words. My husband and I spent 5 hours here on a Thursday morning/afternoon hiking the trails and enjoying the stunning and serene beauty of the park. We drove up to Mount Constitution and were able to take... More

Beautiful view and sights of the San Juan Islands, Cascade Mountains. Fishing was great in July. We stayed at Lieverhaven REsort and had fun. Fishing was awesome, dock and beach just outside cabins where we stayed 3 nights.

This state park is a gem for hikers. We began our hike at the small parking lot for Cascade falls. The trail heads downhill past moss-covered rocks, knee high ferns, under giant fir and cedar to a three-tiered waterfall. Continue through woods along the creek to Mountain Lake where you can take a lunch break at a waterside camp site... More

A group of nine of us (from teens to old guys) did the hike up to the Mt Constitution summit. It is not an easy hike, especially after the climb begins through a series of switchbacks. But walking through the old-growth Douglas-fir, Western hemlock, Western red cedar is an incredible experience. My son was getting tired and I told him... More

we hiked to the top of Mount Constitution, hiked/ran around Mountain Lake and hike to Cascade Falls. It's crowded at the top of Mt. C...because people can drive to the top. on a clear day the view must be incredible. Mountain Lake is a nice run (about 4 miles - counterclockwise is better) Cascade Falls is family friendly and crowded.... More
