Obstruction Pass State Park is located on the bottom of Orcas Island’s eastern ‘horseshoe’. Aside from the small public access location at Point Doughty, Obstruction Pass is the only waterside state park on Orcas Island with camping options and is the second largest state park on Orcas Island after Moran State Park. Islanders love to frequent Obstruction Pass for a change of pace as the Park provides one of the few public access beaches on Orcas Island.
With beautiful beachfront scenery and vistas for viewing the islands around Orcas Island’s south side Obstruction Pass provides a welcome variation from the island’s woodland interior. The Park is accessible by vehicle from Obstruction Pass Road and several miles of trails allow hikers and campers to explore the interior and much of the rocky cliffs of the nearby coastline. Several picnic sites are setup at prominent viewing locations.
Campsites with primitive toilets are available in the woods above the main beach area on the Park’s southern edge and are a prime overnight option for boaters and kayakers. Several buoy moorings are available offshore and Obstruction Pass State Park is just a short distance from the Lieberhaven docks.
Obstruction Pass State Park’s facilities and campgrounds are administered from the Park Office in Moran State Park. No reservation system is setup for Obstruction Pass; campsites are on a first come, first served basis. Call 360-902-8844 for additional information or 360-376-2326 for the Moran State Park office.
