Loved our site #16 as it was right by the river and very large. Appreciated that no generators were allowed in our loop and that they provided bear boxes for the food. My only complaint was the restrooms were really dirty. No paper towels, poop all over one of the toilets, and the hand soap was a dirty bar on a string that was tied near the sink. I know it's rustic camping, but the bathrooms need more attention. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

This is a great campground. The campground is set in a beautiful old growth forest with the Ohanapecosh River running through the campground. There are trails for hiking, as well as other sites to see around the Mt Rainier area. There is also a visitor center in the park. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed mid-September and some of the loops were already closed. Luckily we arrived just after lunch and could grab one of the very last available sites. Pretty dark under the trees and the road through the loops is narrow and winding. The sites are rather on the small side and most of them are sloped. Some to an extent it is impossible to level with the normal amount of equipment one carries around. There are some water taps around. Very quiet once everybody goes to bed. Our site was well enclosed by shrubbery but privacy doesn't come with each site.
Next time we'll try one of the other campgrounds in the National Park. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Crowded. Wild and crazy. We thought it would be less crowded during the week. Not so. Quiet at night however, so we got a good night's sleep. Make a reservation or you may not get in. We were lucky b/c we didn't have a res. We found a decent site close to the restroom. Site was roomy and somewhat level. Good enough for us and I'm picky when tent camping.

Can be a noisy campground with day use people coming and going, they must pass through and park in the campground. Very close to good trails. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

We tried to camp here in August, the only 'walk in' (meaning no reservations) spots that were available were too small for our 31' travel trailer. We were able to drive through the campgrounds but not fit in any spots. We went down the Road to La Wis Wis forest service and got a nice spot. One thought: a nice spot that a trailer would fit in would be occupied by a lone camper in a small tent. Shucks! We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

A great campground, one of the best. The big trees are beautiful, sites are spacious and as private a campsite as you will find. Tons to do. Restrooms are clean for campground. One of our all time favorites. Been camping here since we were kids. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

Beautiful park, but no hookups. Sites by the river are nice. We needed 2 sites -- one for 30 ft travel trailer, the other for the pick up. Helpful hosts. Ohanapecosh visitor center closed for 2013. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Beware the sign at the entrance. "No RVs over 32' long past this point". We chose to not see the sign with our 35' 5er. This is not a CG for the nervous driver with a large rig who does not have a competent person to help direct them into one of the few large sites which can indeed take a 35' 5er & its TV. All are back ins. All are guarded by large unforgiving trees. We were early in the season and arrived on a weekday so there was nobody to tell us that we could not fit. This is one spectacular CG & well worth the effort to get in. Generator noise is not an issue, provided one does not have the noisy type. The river noise is much louder than the average Honda or Yamaha. Undefined sites are mostly very large. Again a very beautiful place. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is very pretty, lots of mature trees and a nice river running through it. But it is kind of busy although the sites are well-spaced, there's not much privacy between sites. We could see and hear our neighbors at all times. Because this campground is accessible to fairly big trailers (up to 27 feet), there were a few folks using generators, which was annoying. There are several nice hikes right nearby. Since the campground is below 2000 feet, it was warmer than other campgrounds in the area. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We're almost halfway through our 6-week trip to 14 national parks and many state parks in-between and this is our favorite so far. Absolute beautiful campground in old growth woods with towering trees and a roaring river at our site tucked in the corner of loop A. We actually had two sites (one for our tow vehicle) because it was very tight getting into our motorhome site. At 32ft we maxed out the size limit so we had reserved the extra just in case. And we needed it. But well worth the effort and extra money. Some open sites and we have perfect weather for the two days we stayed. A drive up to the Paradise visitor's center was awesome. Recently built new in 2006 they have excellent exhibits and facilities. So much snow still on the ground, hikers were carrying their skis for the trip down. We hiked a numbers of lower level trails in the campground and around the park. No showers available but not an issue for us. We can't wait to visit again. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is the classic NPS campground - tucked away in the woods, with semi-private sites, and the charming nature shows at night. We enjoyed our stay, except for the guy with the noisy generator next door. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

Ohanapecosh is a beautiful rustic campground set in an old growth forest in Mount Rainier National Park. We enjoy camping here in the spring or fall when there are no crowds. There is plenty to do here with hiking, a river and a visitor's center. However, we downgraded the campground because many campsites are close together with little privacy, the pads are often broken pavement, and the restrooms are old and need to be refurbished. The campground can be crowded, loud and smoky on a busy summer weekend. The campground does have a dump station. We camped at Ohanapecosh Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
