Individual or small Group Campsite encircled in an old growth Cedar Grove only 5 miles from the NW entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park.  From the Carbon River entrance to the Park, you can walk or bicycle in giving you access to spectacular hikes like Ipsut Creek, Chenuis Falls, Green Lake, and the iconic Carbon Glacier. This is a secluded site with easy access, perfect to set up as your base camp for hiking, biking and exploring in the Historic Carbon Canyon.  There is no Cell service or WiFi connection @ Lo Tahoma, unplug and enjoy!

Lo Tahoma is only a 1/4 mile walk away to the Carbon River, a glacier-fed river that runs year-round.  Bring folding lawn chairs and sit a spell along the river's edge. The north side of this amazing river is lined with an extensive trail system (an unpaved section of the Foothills Rails to Trails) which parallels the river while winding through lush forest, which can be hiked or biked.

After an eventful day of outdoor adventure, you can return to your own private getaway here at Lo Tahoma.  Our site features a clean gravel trail that forks in two directions leading you towards the Campsite and a timber frame Privy.  Parking is close by, with easy access.  Campsite can accommodate up to 2 tents altogether, includes one 10' x 10' raised tent pad with tarp covering overhead. 

We provide a reasonable amount of dry hand-chopped firewood with each night's stay, as well as a fire pit with cooking grate and picnic table.  Additional firewood bundles are available for $7.  A hand-pumped well is close by, providing fresh, non-potable water, a bucket is provided to carry water.

We have our campsite listed to accommodate 4 Adult guests, additional Adult guests are $5 each, up to 6 guests total.  Families with children are welcome and will pay daily fee with no additional charge.

This campsite is awesome! They have everything you need and it feels like a private oasis in nature. We've stayed several times here and will probably do so again.

Trust me, once you stay here you will be spoiled forever! Cedar Grove (Lo Tahoma) was amazing. The attention to detail Kent and Jill put into this campsite was evident in everything from the perfect path to the campsite to the sink to the outhouse! We felt like we were glamping instead of camping. Perfect spot for a base camp for our day hikes out of Mowich.

These chairs were provided and this tarped area is a perfect spot for your tent if it was raining. The garden cart made it easy to get your gear from your car to your private campsite. Perfect place to store your food!

Lo Tahoma is a wonderful place. The campsite is secluded in a cedar grove near the Carbon River entrance to Mount Rainier NP. Everything you could want is here - including a raised tent pad, picnic table, fire pit, sink for washing dishes as well as a compost toilet and changing area.

We loved our camping adventure at Jill and Kent's lovely land. Nestled by towering cedar and fir trees, a short walk to a glorious sunset and a peek a boo view of Mt. Tahoma, we couldn't have asked for a more splendid private and quiet place to unwind. The big treat was sitting under the stars while two barred owls talked to each other from opposite ends of the land. Never have I been privy to such magical communication! The great chats with the caretakers of this land about the history of the area was an added plus. We will be back!

This camp spot is amazing! Private, well cared for, beautiful. We really loved it. Was bummed we had to leave a night early, easily could have stayed for an entire week. So much thought and attention to details - we really appreciated the entire experience.

It’s a singularly beautiful spot, and well appointed. The privy is much nicer than our whole group expected any privy to be. Don’t miss a visit to the edge of the clearing—it was covered in foxglove on full display during our visit.

This hipcamp was SO wonderful. Staying here you are offered thoughtfulness with the perfect amount of privacy. The site alone is beautiful but add the bathroom and it is perfect! We will definitely be returning in the future.

Thank You Sydney! We try not to interfere too much with the natural surroundings, wanting to give you a genuine, unplugged, woodsy experience. Glad to hear it fulfilled your expectations! Hope to see you again! Kent, Jill and Daniel @ Lo Tahoma

My husband and I had such an amazing time at Jill and Kent's place. Very conveniently located to the northwest of Rainier Nat'l Park. The site itself had very thoughtful touches (wood, a sink hookup for washing dishes, covered area for the tent, picnic table, privy). We even saw some elk, deer, and heard barred owls while we were there! Can't wait to come back.
