    What a perfect time to visit Mt. Rainier's mountain meadows. Covered with wild flowers of every color imaginable with Mt. Rainier as a backdrop is picture post card perfect.  more »

    We spent three evenings at the venerable Paradise Inn and were thrilled to hike the Skyline, Alta Vista and Nisqually trails. I am recovering from foot surgery, but all the paths were so well maintain...  more »

Where to stay in Mount Rainier National Park

You could visit Mount Rainier National Park on a day trip from Seattle, but you'll probably want to stay in or closer to the park to maximize your time there. The park provides three developed campgrounds and one primitive one with nearly 500 individual sites between them. For extra creature comforts, book a room at either the National Park Inn or the larger Paradise Inn. Many park visitors lay their heads in the villages west of the park along National Park Highway. Places such as Jasper, Mineral Lake, and Alder Lake offer a mix of lodges, inns, and bed and breakfasts, almost all of which deliver full views of towering Mount Rainier. You might also find reasonable summer deals on hotels at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort just north of the park, though this is a less convenient option.
