State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.
The sale of Rosario Resort on Orcas Island in San Juan County has made property available for purchase adjacent to Moran State Park. The property is located on the west side of Cascade Lake, south of the main entrance to the state park and surrounding Rosario Lagoon. This project is the second phase of an acquisition which will preserve the views of the property from Cascade Lake, retain the character of the park entrance and secure the lagoon shoreline for public recreational use.
