My family camped here for 3 nights in August. It rained and drizzled for 3 days and nights with temperature falling below 50's at night. But that probably killed all the bugs and we had good time exploring the Park. Just a walk to a bathroom presented beautiful view of mountains shrouded in fog and mist. Anyway, to the basics......

Such beauty here! Will continue to count it as my "very favorite" campground. The view across the street from the campground is spectacular. You do need to make reservations to camp well in advance! It is a very popular campground. Trailer camping can be limited. No more than a 35' trailer allowed. Trailer sites are few if you have more... More

Great Campground close to Paradise and across from the Wonderland trail to Carter Falls. Decent bathrooms (bring your own soap and towels) and nice fire pits and tent pads. They do a good job of keeping up the campground.

We stayed at Cougar Rock for 3 nights. We had site C11 which was close to the bathroom but not to close it was annoying or smelly and we had a good distance between us and the next campers. Overall the campground was quiet and clean. There is NO camp store here: you can buy wood at the front check-in... More

Our family stayed at Cougar Rock for two nights in mid-July during our visit to Mount Rainier. We were met with the good humor of the ranger who checked us in and plentiful information about the Ranger programs offered within the campsite that evening. This is one of the loveliest campgrounds I have ever experienced. The trees and boulders reminded... More

Location of this campground is wonderful - on the western side of the park road. The camp sites are large and spread out. The only drawback to the camp is the lack of restrooms. Our loop did not even have a restroom - we had to walk a bit to the next loop. You can view the mountain from loop... More

The bathrooms were a little small. They didn't have hot water to wash your hands, or even paper towel or hand dryer to dry your hands. The campground did not have showers. Closest store for groceries closed at 8:00pm, had to run into town to get supplies. Campsites were very well maintained and quite big. Was very quiet. Major downfall... More

We have been to Ranier before but on this trip just stayed overnight in Cougar Rock. Great woodsie campground. We had a 25ft travel trailer and found it difficult to find a spot. Anything bigger you would not find a space. It rained on us the entire night so we couldnt have a campfire. Loved being among the trees and... More

We have camped at this location for many years and it remains one of our favorite places. The campground itself is better than average but its location at the foot of Mt Rainier is fantastic. A short drive up to the Paradise visitor center and Lodge is a must. During Summer months, trails open up that you can walk to... More

Pretty average-very good campground. Cost was only $15 and finding our campsite was a breeze. It's great that when you make a reservation you know exactly where it will be. Our name was posted on the site post when we arrived. Sites are on the small side but where we were located in Loop E, in the morning when we... More
