Awesome! Right at the foot of Emmons Glacier and well worth the drive. The 'D' loop has the best views but the least shade. As it was hot, I took the shady 'B' loop. No cell service, no hookups, no sewer dump but I will definitely return to this park! We camped at White River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

An excellent CG in a NP. Quiet and serene with several hiking trails that start from the park. Sites in B and C loops are pretty steep, but some in A and D loops are fine. Only a few pull-throughs, but we found a back-in that fit our 31' coach. The sign states a maximum of 27', but we found several that would work, including two right on the White River. We hope to return in the not-too-distant future. We camped at White River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The rate was Golden Age (1/2 price) rate. Toilets are flush but there are no showers. This is one of those jewels of the old Park Service campground network. It is situated right at the foot of towering Mt Rainier and there is a two mile trail to the overlook of Emmons Glacier Terminus, the largest glacier in the lower 48 states. We were in a 17-footer and will camp here again. We camped at White River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful campground along the White River near the Sunrise Visitor Center. It's first-come-first-serve, so it's best to arrive early to get a spot. Each site is spacious with a fire grate-pit (wood is available for purchase for $5/bundle + kindling). We stayed in a tent since they only allow RVs under 27'. We went hiking up at Sunrise on a crystal clear and sunny day. The Mt. Fremont hike is a must-do, beauty everywhere you look! Will definitely come back!

Very lovely setting right on the river. The river is very wild milky glacial melt cascading over boulders, not for swimming or fishing. But the sound of rushing water is great. There are a few campsites right on the riverbank, but they go quickly. There are also a couple of pull-through sites, which are in high demand. The campground was very quiet, no generators were in use when we were there (although they are permitted). The campground also serves as the trail head for the Glacier Basin trail, so you get some backpacker and day-use traffic. The bathrooms were pretty good real flush toilets! But there are no lights at night, so bring your flashlight. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at White River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
