Cougar Rock Campground

A campground on the southwest side of Mount Rainier National Park that is convenient to the Paradise area.

about the campground

Cougar Rock Campground has one lookout point from which campers can view Munt Rainier. Although it is peaceful now, the still active volcano last erupted in the mid 1800s. The campground is adjacent to the Nisqually River and is surrounded by thick forests. A short drive to Paradise in summer reveals fields of lush wildflowers.
