  • Hands down my favorite place to go camping at Mt. Ranier. I have been to a few others, but none of them offer the beauty of camping in the forest like Ohanapecosh. Whether you are right by the river or in a more secluded edge of the campground, you are always surrounded by nature. The bathrooms have electricity and are decently located with 1 in each loop. They do have bear resistant containers in each campsite now, so you don't need to walk back and forth to your cars for food storage any more. They have also upgraded the fire pits to make them more cooking friendly.
  • Awesome place to camp along with a hike to see the hot springs w/ a site to view of the Silver Falls
  • Thee best camping spot. Family tries and go every year!
  • Perfect camping for Mt Rainier
  • 1 1/2 hours off of I-5. G and H sections first come, first serve during peak season.
