This state park is located on Orcas Island. The Good: - The forest is very old and beautiful. The views from the top of Mt. Constitution are amazing and there are some small waterfalls that are an easy hike. - Orcas Island is just a great island to explore. Vern’s Bayside Restaurant in Eastsound has a one pound burger that is worth attempting. - Looking at what other folks were doing, the hiking and biking in the area are great. Most of the tent sites had couples show up with two mountain bikes and they were off riding all day. Unfortunately the roads in the park and on the island are not set up with bike lanes, so things can get a bit hairy when driving around. - Most of the camp sites are pretty private, with a decent amount of space between each site. The lakeside sites are more cramped together, but you still have room to stretch. - The Camp hosts are very friendly. - At least one of the lakes has row boats and paddle boats to rent ($11/hr). The Bad: - There appear to be limited RV sites. The ones we saw were not very level, not easy to access and were back-in. If you want a pull through, Site 104 was the only one that looked decent. We stayed in site 100, which took all of our leveling blocks and digging down the other side of the trailer to get it level. I wouldn’t take anything bigger than a 20-foot trailer into any of the sites, the access roads are steep and narrow. - Dry camping only from the looks of it, but there are plenty of water stations - The camp sites were all dirt, which means lots of mud when it rains. - The water faucet at the dump station didn’t have a hose and stuck out of the ground about 3”. It was a pain to clean things up after dumping the black and gray water tanks. - Restroom facilities at the Northend sites are tired, not very well maintained and there is only one shower in the men’s and women's restroom. I don’t think they were cleaned during our stay. It looks like there are newly remodeled restrooms at the Southend sites. - Because it is peak season, the ferry fees were $170 for just the truck and trailer. Overall it is a nice park, but we won't return with our trailer. I recommend it if you like to tent camp and hike or mountain bike. We camped at Moran State Park in a Tent Trailer.Undo
