Mission Falls

Tribal land, permit required. Primitive road, passable but can be very muddy…

Small, best access to Hurricane Creek Trail

This is a very small campground along Hurricane Creek. Private secluded sites, just a few miles from Hurricane Creek Trailhead in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. The creek is very loud, so much so that I wore earplugs at night to sleep

Large, secluded, private

This is an off the beaten path campground, large and secluded. Campsites seem very private due to lots of large trees separating campsites No cell service.

Riverfront, sprawling, good access to Mt. Rainier Nat. Pk.

I camped here twice this summer, once in late June and again in late July. Both times for hiking in Mt Rainier Nat Park. Great alternative to the parking lot conditions at Ohanakaposh just inside the park. Most of the sites are reservable, but a fair number are first come, first serve. The campsites along the river are the best, but fill up quickly near the weekend. Best to go early in the week if you don't have reservations. On my first trip I managed to get a riverside spot, not so lucky second time around. However, all the campsites are nice, large and well equipped. Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Tent camping only, no running water, no power boats, fly-fishing only

This is a great little campground, on the lake shore amidst a grove of Old Growth Cedar. Only 8 spaces for tents (9 if you count the camp-host site which was unoccupied when I was there).I camped here for 3 nights midweek in early May and had the place to myself. Fisherman come and go during the day, but I never saw more than 3 vehicles at the boat launch. Short and beautiful nature trail through the Cedars. I would have given this campsite 5 stars if it weren't for the noise of the logging going on during the day on the other side of the lake. Also no uninterrupted lake view from the campsites as there are trees and tall shrubs all along the shoreline.
