A beautiful State Park. There are lots of trails, great camping spots and a wonderful lake. Lots of small deer on the road, thus the 25mph speed limit. Gives you the opportunity to really enjoy the beautiful area. Very busy on the weekends.

I chose to go to Orcas Island over other San Juan Islands because of this park and it did not disappoint. Mt. Constitution was incredible and easy to get to. From the top you can even see all the way to the Vancouver skyline. It's...More

On the 24th we went to this beautiful park on Orcas Island. We booked a secluded holiday home in the middle of a few pines and firs called The Treehouse on suggestion by a relative. Our whale watching trip got cancelled so we decided to...More

We didn’t do any hiking in the Park as my husband is limited with walking, but we did enjoy a beautiful drive to the top with one stop at a Lookout point! What a view! Absolutely gorgeous! It was a clear day so you could...More

This is a beautiful hike. It circles the lake close to the shoreline most of the time. The scenery includes the lake and many moss covered rolling hills. The path is well worn and rocky at times. We would gauge the distance at closer to...More

Drive your car all the way to the top of Mt. Constitution, bring a lunch, sit there, enjoy and take in the spectacular view for an hour or two. That's what I did (hiked so much during the week, muscles were too sore). Seriously one...More

I loved this place! We had mountain bikes, rented them in Eastsound, friend had bike rack. Great ride up Mount Constitution and all through the woods, around lakes, smaller summits, etc. Magical place. Not to be missed, on foot or bike. Excellent.

Good hike with great views of the Rosario Strait, Mt. Baker, and various islands in the San Juan Archipelago. You can add some distance by beginning at Cascade Lake. You can also follow a trail on the east side of Mountain Lake. If you begin...More

I booked a site on a Sunday to Monday. I tried to get one close to the water. It didn't really matter as there is zero privacy. I could hear my neighbors/see them. It's pretty loud in that sense. Thankfully I brought ear plugs. I...More

Depends on if one is walking on the road or trail. Are we talking about Mount Constitution? That trail is extremely steep in portions so you have to take it slow and hiking poles would be a good idea. Trail shoes clearly... More

Only went to Moran SP, if you plan on hiking. Plan at least a day visit, other wise 1/2 day if you will not be doing any hiking. If you plan on camping I think you can make reservations. Do that ASAP.
