    Beautiful WA State Park
    Beautiful state park. We hiked little summit to mount constitution. There is little parking at the trail heads but a lot at the fire tower. We also did a few waterfall trails that were beautiful and easy. Check alltrails for good recommendations

    Fabulous hiking trails, gorgeous views, and fun road bike ride up to the summit
    We did something in Moran State Park every day of our 2 weeks on Orcas Island. I hiked most of the trails, which are varied in scenery and range from easy to difficult. We also biked up to the summit a few times, and that's always exhilarating. We saw bald eagles and a piebald deer during our ascents on the bike. The stand up paddleboarding on Mountain Lake was also just great. Can't wait to get back here.

    Ideal place for family fun
    This is a large and beautiful park. There is swimming at Cascade Lake and a playground area. There are many hiking trails, but we drove to Constitution Point as we were short on time. Climbed the tower for really good views of the area. Had lunch at a cafe in the park but unfortunately, I don't remember its name. There is sketchy cell service so if you need to meet up with anyone get your details straight before you arrive.

    Camp Moran & Moran State Park highly recommend
    We had a fam reunion Aug 23 at Camp Moran. Wonderful place. Commercial kitchen. Dublexes w comfortable mattresses & bathrooms. We enjoyed hiking trails, waterfalls, mountain lake swimming, cascade lake kayaking & jumping from bridge, Mt constitution. Swimming /dock area south cascade lake had seaweed and foul odor. We enjoyed swimming elsewhere in the lake and mountain lake was divine. Highly recommend moran state park.

Last weekend I took my teen boys and their friend to explore Moran State Park for the afternoon. We drove to the top of Mt. Constitution and enjoyed the views of surrounding islands and water. Our views were short lived however as a fog began to roll in about 15 min after we arrived. Watching the fog roll in was interesting as well. We hiked to one of the lakes in the park. We saw many mountain bikers and there were still campers enjoying the campgrounds. I would love to come back and explore more trails and camp.

We hiked here two out of three days on Orcas Island. First day a short lap around Mountain Lake - great choice for a rainy days. Second day we hiked up Mt. Constitution from Mountain Lake trailhead following the loop hike described on the sign at the trailhead. It was excellent and glad we didn’t skip Little Summit which turned out to have the best visibility of the day. A very special place and hope to return soon.

Moran State Park has a lot to offer. Hike, camp, and recreate in and around the lake. The camp sites are average as many of them are on the steep hillside and small sites that are pretty close together. WA State Parks expertly packs in as many sites as possible, which tends to detract from the advantages of being in nature.
The lake, both upper and lower are wonderful to swim and play in.
Mt. Constitution is worth a hike or a drive, with a wonderful new visitor center. We had limited views due to the wildfire smoke from Canada, but it was still a nice place to visit.

We visited the park several times, but the piece de resistance was the climb up to the top of Mt. Constitution. The lakes and falls are also wonderful. I'm so glad Mr. Moran donated this land for the park so many years ago

After entering the park and you head toward Mount Constitution it will only be a few miles. Once you walk to the top which is only 100 feet away from your car you will be unable to speak. 2400 feet in the air you will see several islands and some of Canada. It will be the most breathtaking site you will ever see. You overlook the San Juan Islands. I have been to many places and have done so many adventures in my life, this site tops them all as I could not speak. You will be closer to the Almighty here than any place on earth. Enjoy, and do not miss this!

We had heard about Moran State Park and had searched options for hiking to the summit of Mt Constitution. But at our hotel, another guest recommended a 2 hour hike around Mountain Lake. I think it was 3.9 miles all the way around. Not difficult, but just so beautiful and scenic. At one point we found some driftwood to sit on and enjoyed a snack and drink. Loved this hike!

Been to the island 3 times and never left east sound. Not this time. Park is beautiful. Nice lakes and inlet. Plenty of trails and awesome views from Mt constitution.

Great places for a picnic.
