Feeling rustic but still want convenience to the main attraction, 14,411-foot tall Mount Rainier? Cougar Rock is your spot. Located near the mountain's main access point, the Paradise area, Cougar Rock is one of two reservable campgrounds in the park. So lock it in, and don't worry about Bob and his buddies stealing your 4th of July thunder. Nestled in a thick forest next to the Nisqually River, the campground has five group sites that can accommodate 25-40 people (per site). Five vehicles allowed at each group site.
