Moran State Park
Moran State Park on Orcas Island opened in 1921 courtesy of the generous donation of acreage by Robert Moran, a prestigious shipbuilder from Seattle. This breathtaking Park now has more than 5000 acres of forest, camping, freshwater lakes, waterfalls, and 30 miles of hiking trails. The Park is primarily a Camping Park, but with Mt. Constitution towering over the area, the Park offers plenty of walking, hiking, and climbing for sprightly visitors.

Incidentally, Mt. Constitution is the highest point in all the San Juan Islands, measuring 2,409 feet high. The mountain is a popular place for both residents and visitors, with a summit tower that provides an exceptional 360-degree view of the island and its surroundings.
There are more than 30 miles of hiking trails, some also allowing bicycles or horseback riders.
Get a look at some of the other parks on the Islands: Lime Kiln Park, San Juan Island Family Park, San Juan Island Skate Park, San Juan County Park, American Camp National Historic Park, and English Camp National Historic Park.
