Kevin was a great host - very generous and welcoming! The Lot was the perfect spot to throw up our tent before an early morning of hiking on Mt. Rainier. The location was very convenient - right next to the park entrance - and easy to find. The one downside is that The Lot has big gravel rocks that cover the surface, which made sleeping in a tent on the rocks not the most comfortable - even with a nice sleeping pad and bag. It served our purposes though! Thank you, Kevin!

Thank you! There is a large space , to the left of the wooden canopy structure, without gravel, and a smaller space past the firepit without gravel for the next time!!

We had a great time at this private site! Beautiful scenery down by the river, which was a nice short walk! We saw lots of deer and it was quite. Clean and a fair amount of space. Mt. Rainer is literally right there! The host was super helpful and nice which is always a plus! We will be staying again for sure!

This was a great site, close to the entrance of Mt. Rainer. The site can hold multiple tents and has a firering that is 6 feet across. The structure is not a good site to setup a tent, but a perfect place to store wood and other things you do not want to get wet.

The benches and table we're super helpful to prep meals on. Made sitting around the fire much easier.

The bathroom is an outhouse. So if you are freaked out by that, make sure to use one in the lodge or near the trailheads in the park.

The pop-up was amazingly helpful!! We set it up over the entrance of the tents so we could have dry ground to get in and out of.

This is a great secluded spot! I would say the only con was a light coming from the closest building (200 feet away). I for sure will be coming back. Thanks for a great weekend!

Thank you Erik! Glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the feedback about the light from a neighboring property. That property is vacant but I know the owner, so I will see if he will turn it off or put in a low wattage bulb.

Great visit! Site was super well equipped with plenty of coverage from drizzle and camp tables, camp chairs, etc. Also very conveniently located right outside Rainier National Park!

Magical fairyland. This was such a beautiful site- quiet, private and so close to the National Park! I would like to come back and stay longer... it really is the perfect base camp. Directions were accurate and not that complicated. The site has everything we needed, but make sure to read the description carefully so you are prepared.

We had a great stay at The Lot! The mossy trees were a perfect backdrop to our time around the fire. It was great to have a little out house on site. Did not have any issues with getting there, and this site is right outside of Mt Rainer National Park!

Beautiful lot!

Kevin provided everything we could possibly need during our quick trip to MRNP. It began to rain and he had an awning for us, so we were still able to enjoy the outdoors despite the weather. We had deer visit our site while we were sitting around the fire. I highly recommend!

The deer wandered in and out of our campsite throughout our stay and were not shy at all!

It's nothing glamorous, but it's a great place to camp with access to Mt. Rainier National Park. We appreciated the campfire grate to cook on, pop up canopy, and camp chairs.

Our stay at The Lot was amazing. The location was so convenient being right next to the Nisqually entrance of Mount Rainier National Park and just close enough to "town" to resupply firewood and other essentials. Although there were neighbors around, I could only see or hear them if I left the actual campsite. A group of deer visited us on multiple occasions. We would definitely stay there again.
