A backcountry campsite on the Spray Park Trail in Mount Rainier National Park.
The is one of my favorite spots to camp.
It's a short hike from Mowich Lake, which has it's own campground, but there are only a few spots here, which makes it quiet.
On the way, you get stunning views of Mount Rainier. Shortly after the campsite is where we got our water - an incredible waterfall. Also great for a bracing dip.
The bear pole was located in a central location to the sites. The toilet, on the other hand, was down a pretty steep hill.
The sites are spaced out nicely from each other and there is a real feeling of privacy.
Either direction you go when you leave this spot you have hiking - up towards Rainier or back to Mowich Lake, for more cold swimming with beautiful views.
We had an amazing time! So many beautiful views of the mountain and amazing waterfalls. We came across a black bear eating berries and we trekked through some snow. The trail is semi crowded in the day but later in the afternoon all the day hikers start to clear out. The camp ground was clean and it was cover by a ton of beautiful trees. It was a great spot!
