We stayed in Loop H, the only spaces that will fit medium trailers. We are 20'. The 'river' loop sites are very small and roadway is narrow and tight. Loop H sites are roadside parallel parking and some can be very tight to fit the trailer and tow vehicle. We had plenty of room to put our slide out next to the roadway. With >20 sites, traffic is minimal. Quiet, close to river, we enjoyed the 2 night stay. Would stay here again. We reserved online and that was an added $10 for the Reserve America fee, but well worth it. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Want a good burger? Drive into Packwood, also the closest fuel, and try the Cliff Dropper. Hand pressed burgers and elk burgers too ... YUM !!

Overall Rating:

Spent the first weekend of June here and it was maybe half full. This is an old, dry campground and spaces in A thru G are short, tight and close together, with tall trees and little room for anything longer than a van. Saying that, there are exceptions and did see some trailers and RVs under 30 foot squeezed in, but nothing for longer RVs.

Loop H is where we were, and it has more room for the longer RVs and where you would want to be if you need solar. The spaces are not pull thru, but wide spots in the road where you can park and the tables are tucked back into the woods.

Sites 12 -15 are sort of together so would be good for large groups, and 13 is actually a multi family site with 2 tables but not a lot of room for tents. (Ground is rocky so bring pads to sleep on.)

Toilets are pit and the water was shut off when we were here, but available in loop A. Fee station is on Loop A, so pick your site and then go an pay. Reserved sites are well marked. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Packwood has a small museum, and a couple of restaurants. (Understand the Italian one is the best.)

You can dump at the private RV park for a fee, and get gas but like all towns high in the mountains, its not cheap. Also a small grocery store has most supplies you might have forgotten. The nearest free dump is on I-5 North before you get to Olympia. It looks like it also has potable water.

PROS: Beautiful park and location. Clean, peaceful and large sites. Really enjoyed our weekend visit. Pretty waterfall also.

CONS: Wish there was an sewer dump close by though. Pull-thru sites are set up with the entry door on the wrong side of site. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This campground is a great place to stay for small RV's, tent trailers, and tents of course. The loops are pretty tight and I would not recommend bringing an RV any longer than 22ft. Located along the Cowlitz River, this campground sits next to Mt Rainier National Park. My family has camped here numerous times through out the last 23 years. My sons favorite thing about this place was the swimming hole about 1/4 mile up the river from the main campground. The locals call this place "blue hole". The water is very cold even in the mid August heat. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Tent Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Located just outside Mount Rainier... this park is a hidden gem operated by Forest Service. Camp Host is very helpful in situating trailer and enforces quiet hours. Spots have privacy, not all crowded in like at Mount Rainier campground. Easy access to Mount Ranier and Packwood is a town with an interesting history We camped in a grove of trees next to the river! We would stay here again. Admin note: park road and campsites have been reported as tight for larger RVs. We camped at La Wis Wis Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.
