Tips from locals
Yeah, this is a must see. Moran State Park is the gem of Orcas Island. Hiking & bike trails, horseback riding, waterfalls, two lakes...and Mt. Constitution- the highest peak in the San Juan Islands. Drive up and admire the view then take a walk around Cascade lake. Swim in the summer. Play area…
Rent a paddle boat. Hike the trails. Gander from the tower and view point. Ride a mountain bike. Camp.
Numerous hikes and great look out at the top of Mt. Constitution. Swimming and fishing in the lakes is welcomed.
Mount Constitution is in this park and is the highest point in all of the islands, you can see Canada and Bellingham from here. 38 miles of hiking trails will keep you busy all day.
On a clear day the views from the top of Mt Constitution are awesome, it almost feels like you are flying over the San Juan islands. The hike around Mountain Lake incredibly beautiful.

“I love the bar aka "The Mansion". The mansion was the home built by Ship builder Robert Moran, the former mayor of Seattle, responsible for re-building the city after the "great fire" of 1889. He donated the property which is now Moran State Park. The spa is downstairs from the bar and offers full spa treatments and the use of an indoor pool . Visit the mansion and drink in the history of the island..”

“Great food. In the summer, sit outside. Dungeness Crab Enchiladas are amazing. Eshites (roasted corn) also worth it. Make reservations before you set out for Orcas. They fill up weeks in advance”
