Moran State Park is a 5,252-acre camping park with five freshwater lakes and over 30 miles of hiking trails. Atop the 2,409-foot-high Mt. Constitution, the highest point on the San Juan Islands, there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower offers panoramic views of the surrounding islands, the Cascade Mountains and a variety of Canadian and American cities.Want to support Washington State Parks?

Winter Schedule for all Washington State Parks
Moran State Park is undergoing a forest health project. The park’s primitive campground is closed until further notice. The Cascade Lake to Cascade Falls trail also is closed during the project beginning Oct. 29. Hikers may access Cascade Falls from the trailhead on Mount Constitution Road. The closed section of trail will be marked at both trail intersections.
Please note: There is no potable water at the summit of Mount Constitution. A vending machine is available with bottled water, sports drinks and energy drinks available for purchase. Hikers and bikers should plan accordingly.
Don't move firewood: Please protect the Pacific Northwest from invasive species by obtaining or purchasing your firewood at or near your camping destination (within 50 miles). Firewood can carry insects and diseases that threaten the health of our western forests. You can make a difference by buying and burning your firewood locally. For more information, visit online at www.dontmovefirewood.org or the Washington Invasive Species Council website.
