Cascade Lake

Orcas Adventures provides you with many options for getting out on the water. Join us at Cascade Lake in Moran State Park at "The Day Use Area" for Kayaks, Canoes, Paddle Boards, Paddle Boats and Row Boats. The "Day Use Area" is complete with full service bathrooms, a playground, a warm sandy beach for easy entry for children, a designated swimming area and our sweet little "Sugar Shack" for snacks (see the column on right).

Cascade Lake boat rentals are first, come serve with lots of availability. This lake is warmer and has excellent accessibility. 


Mountain Lake

We have boats at Mountain Lake for rent. We now take reservations too! We have canoes, kayaks, row boats, and SUP boards available.  Mountain Lake is by far the best freshwater lake on Orcas Island. It has three islands, crystal clear waters, and endless adventures for everyone. These boats rent out quickly are in high demand. We recommend this lake for experienced boaters. There are outhouses, no easy lake entry for small children, limited parking and no food concessions. BUT this lake is incredible and worth the effort! PLEASE SHOW UP EARLY FOR YOUR RESERVATION.


The Sugar Shack

The Sugar Shacks proudly serves 12 flavors of local Lopez Island Creamy Ice Cream on our gourmet waffle cones. For refreshments we offer our homemade strawberry lemonade, ice tea, espresso, and other options. Bistro items include paninis, hot dogs & grilled cheeses to name a few.

Our location on Cascade Lake also has a small store that offers sunscreen, lake "floaties", beach buckets, sun hats, shirts, swimsuits, towels, the list goes on. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, & cash. Come see what summer time is all about right on the beach or at the best viewpoint on the island!
