Really enjoyed our stay at this campsite! Such beautiful views. My partner and I needed somewhere to camp close by Mount Rainier and this was perfect. Only one toilet and shower combined busy when campsite full

Would highly recommend

A beautiful open camping spot in the valley, with warm running the water and shower in the pump house!

This spot was so much more than we expected, with beautiful views down the valley, stars at night and even a warm shower.

Nice large camping area with a great view. Host was very responsive. Hot showers and a flushing toilet are always pro - would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

From whichever direction you come, once you're on Cline Road you know your getting close to this gem of a property situated smack-dab in the middle of the triangle formed by Mt. Rainier, Mt. St Helens, and Mt. Adams. Location-wise it could not be more perfect - you are near all these major mountains and more. Recreational activities - hiking, snowshoeing, ATVing, fishing and just plain ol' sight-seeing comes easy out here.

The property itself is a beauty - rolling pastures, cows grazing on the land nearby, closed in by pine and maple, and surrounded by the Cascade foothills, visited by elk in the morning and evening, and plenty of fresh wide open air.

The lot itself boasts four pull-in sites for RVs with electrical and water, and there is a tiny A-frame with a heated full bath, toilet, sink and shower to boot! A large fire pit circled by stumps provides the perfect setting for your night capper.

Just outside the town of Randle, grocery, gas, a bar and grill, and cafe are all nearby.

Next time you need the perfect place to stay on your visit to one of Washington's southern volcanoes, be sure you stay here.

Water spigot at each RV spot. Tent pitched on the porpertyExterior of tiny A-Frame with heated full bath. The property has four pull-in spots for RVs, each with electricity and water.

This site is just as described. We even had six friendly :) elk come up to observe us. If you are in the area of Mt Rainier, Mt Saint Helens, Mt Adams, hiking in Gifford Pinchot National Forest or traveling scenic Hwy 12, through Washington check out this site!! It was around ten minutes off 12 and easy to find!
