About: Cougar Rock Campground, on the southwest side of the park, is convenient to the Paradise area. Paradise is the most popular destination in the park, with a lodge and visitor center, many miles of hiking trails, and a commanding view of the mountain.

The main attraction at Mount Rainier National Park is the mountain itself, a glacier-clad volcano of immense proportions. At 14,411 feet, it dominates the skyline for hundreds of miles. Visitors travel through majestic old-growth forest, past tumbling waterfalls and historic buildings to reach subalpine meadows, where world-famous wildflower displays are seen in July and August. Popular activities in the park include sight-seeing, hiking, climbing, and camping.

Restrictions: The number of vehicles per site is limited to those that will fit on the parking pad. See parking pad dimensions for each site.

Directions: Located fourteen miles east of Ashford on State Route 706/ Paradise Road.
