I stayed at Cougar Rock in Loop E, which seems to be quieter than the rest. It's a beautiful, quiet, well-covered area. You are in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, and can catch glimpses of it from the right place in the campground. You can get a lot of traffic noise from people driving to Paradise, but it dies down at night. If you like hiking, you'll love the many trails accessible here. If you're not a hiker, there are lots of spots to stop and park to see some great sites as well. They didn't have the shuttle running up to Paradise (2013), so if you want to go up, you'll have to drive. Go very early or in the evening to ensure a place to park. Lots of hiking options and sites to see from Paradise too. Had an amazing time at Cougar Rock and plan on coming back. Would recommend to anyone.
