Camping at Mt Rainier re-connect. Reconnect with nature. Recharge your soul. Repeat.

When we are physically injured we take the necessary steps to rehabilitate our injuries. Mt Rainier re-connect is rehab for your soul. Located on 27 private river front acres on the Nisqually river just outside of the Nisqually/Paradise entrance to Mt Rainier National park. Enjoy private access to the glacier fed Nisqually river from your river side campsite. With the National park entrance being just three miles away you can explore Mt Rainier national park or choose to venture out to the world renowned trailhead of high rock lookout and the many beautiful alpine lake trailheads. Big Creek and Skate creek offer up good sized brook trout to the lucky and are both a short drive up the road. Or you can choose to relax at your camp site and enjoy the view of the Nisqually glacier and the snow capped top of Mt Rainier with the soothing ever present sound of the Nisqually river in the background. Dry camp RVs are parked on maintained grass with meandering and unmarked trails to the river. For those looking to stay “connected” to technology. WiFi is available and the majority of the property has WiFi access. . Our “Dry camp” RV spot offers a view of the Mt Beljica Mt Wow and the top of Mt rainier. At the moment we have one RV site. . . The camp area is approximately 100’ from the river and has a dedicated fire pit and wooden spools for tables. This campsite is well hidden and very.private. With its own private access to the river. We also have a cabin on this property listed on Hipcamp. That has its own private trail to the river that keeps guests from the cabin totally separated from the lower river access campsite. We live on the property but keep out of sight as much as possible. Looking forward to sharing this little piece of paradise with others. It truly is something special.

Amazing site! So large, spacious and private. Amazing views of Mount Ranier on a clear day. Sounds of the river to sleep to. Huge firepit. Kind, welcoming host. Couldn't ask for anything better!

We stayed here in mid March with our 2 year old and our stay at Mt Rainier Reconnect was our favorite part of the trip! Scott is very friendly and welcoming, we loved how spacious our spot was and the views were great. The highlight for our whole family was exploring the riverbed. It really was a unique experience, splashing in creeks, climbing on logs and just hanging by the river. Honestly that part is worth the trip, We enjoyed Mt, Rainer too, but really just loved exploring the river.

Had a fantastic time at Mt. Rainier Reconnect. Scott is a generous host and a beautiful soul. The sites were clean and accommodating, and are a 12-minute drive from Mt. Rainier National Park and a 25-minute drive from the High Rock Lookout trailhead. Cannot recommend this site enough!

Scott’s property is wonderful and Scott is an amazing host. I would highly recommend this spot and would gladly stay again! Great location close to the park but feels very secluded!

We had a great time!! We had site #1 the lower spot and was great, clean and private. Small trail walk to the river where we spent most of the time was beautiful. Thank you for the hospitality!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Peace grows here slowly, solidly, but absolutely, like the moss covered pines and intense continuity of the river. Scott was a fantastic and dedicated host and we were grateful and blessed to be his first guests. If you are looking for a real place to reconnect with silence and the beauty of creation, this is certainly it.
