Be aware if you visit Orcas at this time of year, many restaurants will be closed except on weekends, and most outdoor atrtractions will not be available either (no whales, boat tours, kayaks or biplane tours at this time of year.) I thought, "Fine. I will drive up this amazing... More

My family with several other families were camping in Moran State Park while my husband and I stayed nearby in a great B&B enjoying the communal daytime and campfire activities before going off to our comfortable bed. This large, uncrowded park has the most amazing tall trees, sparkling lakes for swimming, canoeing and fishing, trails with different levels of difficulty,... More

Beautiful 4 mile loop around the lake. Easy for kids to hike...9, 7 & 4 year olds made it no problem. The 2 year old got half way. Green everywhere you look. Ferns, moss, mushrooms & lichen all over. Very tranquil and good for families, couples and trail runs. Some MTB with permit.

We visited the park through a horse back riding trip. It was just amazing. Very clean, the trails were well kept and so much very accessible to even the least hiking minded.

you can hike or drive to the viewing station at the top of Moran. We drove up and got to see Mt. Baker, in the Cascade Range, exposed. There is an enclosed viewing station the you can climb for more views.

Beautiful hiking trails for all hiking levels. Breathtaking views and warm lakes. The Kokanee and trout fishing is incredible. Lots of history in this 5000 + acre park designed for family camping.

We have been to this park before. The pine trees, moss and ferns make it beautiful rain or shine. This time we hiked Mountain Lake Trail to the Twin Lakes trail and back. It was about 2.6 miles round trip. An easy trail with a couple of hills and it hugs the lake shore. Very nice.

I've been up to Mount Constitution 3 times now and every time I find the view jaw dropping - I love the view out over the islands, Bellingham Bay and Vancouver. Worth the trip to Orcas Island all by itself!
