  • On the 24th we went to this beautiful park on Orcas Island. We booked a secluded holiday home in the middle of a few pines and firs called The Treehouse on suggestion by a relative. Our whale watching...  more »

  • This is a beautiful hike. It circles the lake close to the shoreline most of the time. The scenery includes the lake and many moss covered rolling hills. The path is well worn and rocky at times. We w...  more »

  • What a beautiful park. Visited on a Friday morning and there were very few others there. We didn't have much time to spend so we drove to the top of Mt. Constitution for the overlook. Sadly, the tower was closed for renovations but we still had great views from the ground. Also, don't be fooled by the short distance of this drive; the steep, curvy road takes a while to ascend (and descend). We also hiked the trails near Cascade Falls, which were short and easy, and the series of waterfalls were spectacular. We couldn't get over how much this wooded area looked like some place dinosaurs would roam.
  • Great park, very well run as the bathrooms and showers were very clean. We had a great site and had to book nearly 10 months in advance. Bring firewood and starter logs as the bundles are $6/each. Great fishing and swimming when temps are in the 80's.
  • Beautiful scenic drive and hike through the whole park and up the mountain. So amazing to stand up so high and see all the islands in front you. Make sure you go all the way to the top of the tower. Side note: Make the adventure on a sunny day though, or your views will be engulfed in clouds!
  • Amazing views from mt Constitution. The place was gorgeous. Would love to come back and camp. Our favorite spot of the San Juan islands
  • Beautiful but pricey. But then how often do you drive 5000 miles spend $73 on a fairy then decide to leave that day because the spot is pricey. But then we were next to fence surrounded by thorns.
