“Adequate but outdated”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

This visitor center needs to be updated but it does have a nice relief map of the whole park to help you get oriented. Not worth going out of your way to stop here.

“Great place to camp. Worth the hike to the falls”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Widely known as the best camp ground hands down. Even if you're not camping, a stop in with a hike to the water fall (1 to 1.5 miles if I remember correctly) is well worth it.

“Nice, quiet campground on the SE corner of Mt Rainier National Park”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

My trip was actually Sept 2009, but I am writing this because there are no reviews for the campground.

This campground is located on the SE corner of Mt Rainier National Park.

The campground doesn't take reservations, it is first come, first serve only.

That being said there are dozens of great sites to tent camp. It's extremely quiet at this campground, despite being near a highway passing by Mt Rainier National Park.

The restrooms are flush toilets and there is potable water, but no showers.

There are a lot of trees here...TONS. It makes for a cool, refreshing atmosphere where you can just listen to the wind blowing gently through them.

There is a rushing river nearby. You can get a campsite that is overlooking the river and have the waters lull you to sleep at night.

The firepits are fantastic, they are concrete blocks, not the iron horseshoes. This is good because campfire heat can radiate freely instead of being forced straight up as the horseshoes do.

There's plenty of hiking nearby and you can make the drive up to Mt Rainier (Paradise) in about an hour.

I hope you enjoy camping at this campground as much as I did!

“Nice 3+ mile loop trail to beautiful waterfall”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

The loop trail is a little more than 3 miles but the trail is nicely maintained and pretty easy. The big reward is the waterfall half way along the trail.
