Summit Visitor Center

At the 2,407-foot peak of Mount Constitution -- the highest point in the San Juan Islands -- the Summit Visitor Center offers guests a spectacular interpretive experience inside and out.  

Check out the interpretive displays outside the center highlighting the ecology and geology of Mount Constitution and surrounding island chain. Then, climb the stone stairs of the Mount Constitution Lookout Tower to take in a nearly 360-degree lay of the land.   

Head inside the center where you will find more interpretive displays about the Civilian Conservation Corps, the traditional Coast Salish people and a raised relief map of Moran State Park.  

Half of the Summit Visitor Center contains a gift shop run by Friends of Moran State Park, the nonprofit organization in support of Moran State Park. For more information, visit the Friends of Moran website
