You've found the best RV parking in Packwood, Washington at the base of Mt Rainier. Enjoy nearly an acre of quiet, old growth, tranquil, forest to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Leave behind the congested RV park and experience a unique and tranquil oasis of natural beauty. Pick between two RV parking spots, with septic, 30 amp electric and water. Enjoy your own fire pit, a covered picnic shelter with lighting, horseshoe pits and a covered porch with a swing. Access the property with a U-shaped, pull-through drive, or simply back in/out. The property is located at the dead end of a road with a large, paved cul de sac for easy turning . You'll be centrally located to the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer: Mt. Rainier National Park (12 miles to the Stevens Canyon entrance and 28 miles to the Nisqually entrance in the summer....longer in the winter), White Pass (including the ski resort and the Pacific Crest Trail), the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, the Cowlitz River, Packwood Lake, and endless hiking trails. Looking for more? You're also not far from Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams. While you feel like you've stepped away from it all, you're still just a few miles away from the amenities of Packwood, including shopping, restaurants, gas, etc. Fall asleep to the soft sounds of nearby Butter Creek, and wake up to fresh forest air. Spend your days exploring what makes the Pacific Northwest so amazing, and relax at night gathering around the large fire pit or enjoying time together under the covered picnic shelter. A second RV is allowed for an additional fee (contact owner), though electrical service is only available for one RV (septic and water available for two). One tent is allowed provided it is accompanied by a fully contained RV with a bathroom. The maximum occupancy is 6 persons regardless of the number of RV's or if a tent is used. Some guess have reported that using slide outs leaves little to no room to walk past the slide outs without having to walk off the driveway; if your vehicle has slide outs this may not be an ideal location for your vacation. (note: there is a small residence on the property, which will be vacant during your stay; you are free to use the covered porch area and the porch swing).If you are looking for an uncrowded, truly private and memorable RV parking spot to call home for a while, then this is for you. Sink your teeth into the heart of the Pacific Northwest: we guarantee you won't be able to finish all the hiking trails within a 60 minute drive radius. This is an outdoor paradise waiting for you to explore, or simply sit back and enjoy. The lighted picnic shelter will allow you to make and eat meals, play games or simply sit and talk after the sun goes down. Be sure to bring your horseshoes and play a few games in your own horseshoes pits. The fire pit is huge and will allow plenty of room for everyone to sit around it. You'll feel like you're in the middle of the forest, but just a few miles from the amenities of Packwood, including a grocery store, gas, hardware, auto care, restaurants, and a museum. This is an established RV parking place that has been privately used, but is now made available for others to use. Please note: there are no restroom or toilet facilities provided; you must provide a vehicle with a bathroom. The roads leading to the site are scheduled to be plowed after snowstorms, but the property itself will not be plowed. A snow shovel is available on the porch for use if needed. Packwood does receive snow on occasion, but usually not a lot. The real snow happens at White Pass and Mt. Rainier. However, please watch weather reports and come prepared.

Really tidy and private place. Very cool of Brandon to accommodate my 4Runner setup. Perfect base camp for exploring the mountains.

Perfect basecamp for WP
This is a great, quiet spot close to Packwood and White Pass. Easy to get to and even tho it's only 5 minutes from town, it's far enough away that it feels like real camping. We have a pretty large camper (30' total length) and were able to get situated w/only a little maneuvering. Fulll hook-ups were great. Brandon was very quick to respond when we had questions. There are some cabins adjacent, but we did not feel crowded (and only one cabin was being used when we were there). This is a lovely hipcamp spot and we hope to be back again, either for skiing this winter or hiking in the summer.

This property is wonderful! It’s really well appointed, can’t think of a thing that’s needed. Close to town, close to a stunning park and a communicative host - what’s not to love? His suggestion to assess the entrance(s) before bringing the trailer in was appreciated. This was a great first experience with HipCamp! Many thanks!

Great place to stay near packwood. Host was responsive during my stay. Parked here with a 20ft trailer and had no problems using the drive through driveway. Larger trailers will probably want to back in on the first driveway. Quiet neighborhood. 2 bars Verizon. Too much tree cover for starlink. Would stay here again!
