Orcas Island’s  finest camping is at Moran State Park , with more than 150 campsites in four different campgrounds along Cascade and Mountain Lakes, plus a separate bike-in area ($12). Tent sites are $21–25, with showers provided. There are no RV hookups, though they do have a disposal station. Due to the park’s popularity, reservations are required in the summer months. All sites are pre-assigned, so check in at the pay station across from Cascade Lake when you arrive. Make reservations ($7 extra) at 888/226-7688 or www.parks.wa.gov . The campground is open year-round.
