MORAN STATE PARK - THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE SAN JUAN ISLANDS
Cascade Lake is the most popular lake in Moran State Park and the best place to get an introduction to the outdoor opportunities the park has to offer. Locals have used the lake’s Day Use Area for decades and it is the best family friendly location for swimming and picnics on the grass by the water. The Sugar Shack at the swim area is open daily in season offering drinks, snacks, and ice cream to the swimmers; visitors can rent a paddle boat or kayak from the rental and bait shop adjacent to the lower picnic area. The Cascade Lake Loop trail starts and ends at the Day Use Area. The trail includes several promontories with views of the lake and Mount Constitution, and the lake bridge, a reconstruction of a classical wood design, is a very popular spot for swimming and fishing.
