Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $10.00
Campground is in the Southwest corner of the park. Spaces are reasonably separated but most are pretty tight and the loop road is narrow with many trees to avoid. Be careful in a bigger rig. this is a pretty basic campground typical of the NFS. Has water and restrooms but that is about it. Can't beat the location if you are exploring Mt. Rainer from the SouthWest side. We camped at Cougar Rock Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice park in the National Park. Good sites, great views. Water available in the park. No showers, no Wi-Fi signal, no TV signal, no phone reception. May dump on way out of park and refill tanks. We camped at Cougar Rock Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
Cougar Rock is a beautiful wooded campground in the southwest corner of the park. There are plenty of hiking opportunities from the campground or within a few miles. While it is in the forest, the view of Mt. Rainier from the access road is spectacular! There is a nightly campfire program during the summer. An outdoor enthusiast could easily spend a week here! The one drawback is that the pads for most campsites are a combination of broken pavement and gravel. Some are quite uneven and many are rough. If you have a big rig, there are very few sites that would accommodate you. Some of the interior roads have tight corners. Also, a big rig may have trouble accessing the dump station because of its tight radius. The campsites for the most part have good privacy. All in all, a very relaxing place to be! We camped at Cougar Rock Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
