We were visiting Washington for the first time and came down to visit Mount Rainier for two days after backpacking in North Cascades National Park. We knew Mount Rainier would be insanely busy as compared to North Cascades, which gets less than 30,000 visitors per...More
Fantastic campsite to visit to by near to all the excellent trails. Friendly staff and lots of great hikes from the campsite. Proper camping, no showers, but flushing toilets - camp fires and close to nature.

When you book a site at Cougar Rock, pay careful attention to the details about grades etc described on each site. We booked what we thought was a level site but it was a pull-thru with a hill in the middle. So though we had...More

I didn't really actually see any legitimate tent pads...you basically just pitch your tent. We tent camped with a four person tent (9x7) which isn't as large as yours, but we felt that we had plenty of room. Most sites had more than one tent -- ours, however, would not have allowed for that. FYI, don't stay at site E013 or any of those adjoining it. It was quite terrible. Have you been looking at pictures on recreation.gov? Checking Campsite Photos (the website) and looking up Cougar Rock Campground will also be pretty helpful. Sorry, it won't let me copy any links. The campground is pretty covered in trees so it may not help to do this but I always try to use Google Maps or Google Earth to get an idea of campsites as well. Pictures can be deceiving!
