Well maintained campground in the national park. It is pretty large and the spots are not super private. Some of them are next to the river which is nice. I thought it was a little loud because there were so many people and it’s relatively open in the forest. Had decent bathrooms and good access to easy trails and small swimming spot on the river.
This was our favorite campground over the course of 40 days on the road. Our site was right next to the river – the sound of the water was super peaceful! We were early in the season, so it was very quiet. Lots of tree coverage!
It's very hard to get a reservation anywhere near Mount Rainier. We got one Thursday night in August! The campgound is very nice. Visitor center, restrooms, nature trail. The river behind our site was beautiful! Lots of logs and boulders. Close to hiking. Our neighbors were close, but the site was very deep so it gave the illusion of more privacy that there really was.
This campground is perfect for one person, up to a whole family of six or whatever have you. Super close to the Silver Falls and the Ohanapecosh hot springs. Our camp site was very spacious with a good fire pit and close to bathrooms as well. The amphitheater was right next door and they hold ranger stories and other activities for all ages. If you’re planning on camping in the Mt. Rainier National Park, take a peak at what Ohanapecosh has to offer because you won’t leave upset or empty handed.
This is a family favorite that we visit every year. Very family friendly with large and small camp sites. Great for multiple family outings. Very full in the summer time. Only a 45 minute drive up to Paradise or White river for amazing hikes on the mountain. Greats hikes from the campground too! Visitor center in the campground, fun ranger programs
Amazing campground right in the Ohanapecosh River. Beautiful trees plenty of space and amazing ranger led activities for the kids.
I like this campground a lot. The sites are spread out, so that you don’t feel like you’re on top of your neighbor. As someone who often camps alone, it was nice to know others were close, but not too close!
We’ve stayed here a few times and it has been great. There are some sights that are better for kids than others. But we’ve had good luck most of the time.
The group campground is in its own separate area. We had more than enough space for our training retreat. The rangers were extremely helpful in getting everything set up and figured out for our ever-changing list of RSVPs. For groups, you can have the rangers do a special program just for your group---highly recommended!! They do a good job keeping up with cleaning. Lots of great information about the natural features and Native American history. Make sure you follow all the regulations regarding bears…we saw paw prints out on hikes. This is pretty far away from any stores, so make sure you have everything you need before entering the park. Excellent basecamp for long hikes in the area.
Incredible area, heavily wooded, clear waterways, endless mountain views. This is a fairly large and busy campground but the sites still feel private thanks to the PNW forests.
