Orcas Island Camping
Orcas is popular with campers due to the variety of campsites it offers and the natural beauty of the island. You can camp at the foot of Mount Constitution, swim in its lakes, hike to its waterfalls and streams, and enjoy the view from the summit. Those campers who want a more back-to-nature experience have the opportunity for primitive, first-come, first-served camping. Whatever your preference, Orcas Island offers you an array of outdoor recreation, from kayaking to biking, hiking and more, all within easy access from wherever you pitch your tent.
Moran State Park on Orcas Island 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. The park is open year-round for camping and day use. Some campsites are closed in winter. Reservations necessary Memorial Day through Labor Day. [more...]
