Friends of Moran, what’s it all about?Cascade Falls

Come find out! Volunteer with us or donate to one of our projects that resonates with your passion for the park.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Our mission is to support park staff as they manage Moran State Park.  We strive to enhance the visitor experience by providing educational opportunities related to the cultural, historical and natural environments at the park.

Moran State Park has over 5,200 acres to explore by foot, bike, horse, boat or car.  We have over 35 miles of trails, 5 freshwater lakes, picnic areas, overnight camping, a vacation house rental and an overnight retreat center that holds up to 144 people.  We have beautiful flora, fauna and water falls as well as scenic views from the trails and/or from the comfort of your vehicle.  Cascade Lake has a swimming beach, a playground for the kids, and fishing for bass, trout sunfish or Kokanee (a land locked Salmon) stocked from our hatchery.  Concessions provide quick snacks and rentals for kayaks, row boats and paddle boats.

For the history buffs and architect enthusiasts, we have over 20 historical buildings that were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the ‘30s and ‘40s.  The stone tower at the top of Mt Constitution contains information about Robert Moran and the CCC.  The views from the top are spectacular.  Interpretive panels provide information about panoramic views from the summit. 

For families or kids of any age visit the Summit Learning Center and check out a Moran Journey Pack.  For a small donation, packs provide nature games, color pencils, binoculars, magnifying glasses and more.  It’s an environmental educational outreach for kids of all ages.  The Learning Center (open June- Sept) hosts guided hikes and naturalists to answer your questions.  Just like the learning center, the Gift Shop (May-Sept) has a something for everyone.  Both are staffed by volunteers for Friends of Moran.  All proceeds to Friends of Moran benefit Moran State Park projects and educational outreach.  FOM is a 501(c)3 organization.

Moran is open year-round but campsites fill up early in the summer, so call ahead to 888-CAMPOUT
