The campgrounds at Moran State Park provide access to an impressive amount of amenities. From a playground and boat ramp to picnic shelters, hiking trails, and boat rentals on Cascade Lake, there are plenty of options for all ages. The sites are also a short driving distance from additional attractions such as Doe Bay and Mount Constitution.

Overall, the campsites are separated into three separate areas: North End, Midway, and South End. The North End and Midway campsites cascade down a treed hillside, while the South End sites are nearest to Cascade Lake and its associated boat ramp. All of the sites are walking distance to the centrally located amenities focused around Cascade Lake.

We camped at Midway, and the boat launch where we saw lots of kayakers was almost just across the road. You can also swim from here, but the roped off swimming area with fishing docks is just up the road a short walk. Cascade Lake is significantly warmer than Mountain Lake, but we found Mountain Lake much quieter and scenic for kayaking, and there's a handy little dock and restrooms right at the entrance to the campsites.
The downhill hike to Cascade Falls is pretty short from its little parking area, but if you head uphill from that parking, there are two more lovely little falls (we saw a young girl diving in and out of the pool at Cave Falls); the third falls past that one isn't worth the walk, though the walk is easy.

Trail through campground reaches Cascade Falls. Great tree cover for a cool walk in hot August.

Great campground with sites right on the lake, which was not crowded at all. We were at site 18 & 19 (midway), which have to be reserved together because they are so close. We had three tents set up between the two sites. I love that beyond your campsites here is nothing but the lakeside. It felt like we had our own little secret access to the lake. However, pretty much any of the sites right next to the lake were pretty great. I can't wait to do another trip.
