Great campground close to Paradise! Lots of hikes leave from this campground and you are a short drive away from Paradise on Mt. Rainier (you should go there for the sunset and sunrise if you can!). The campground is quite large and popular, and due to its elevation isn't as secluded as some of the others. Be sure to take some warm clothes as the nights tend to be extra cool!
