Took this campground because we could not get a spot in Mount Rainier National Park. The camp is right outside of Mt. Rainier on the south west entrance. The camp is wonderfully situated in dense forest - it takes a little to drive back off the highway. However, we had a difficult time finding our reserved site - signs were... More

We camped here 8 nights in our small, 17' travel trailer. There are a total of 130 sites, some single ($20/night) and some multi ($38/night). Price is half with Golden Age pass. Early in the week there are many open sites; weekends are packed. About 30 sites are open, or first come. Several of these are along the river. We... More

I stayed here in my 23ft. travel trailer. There are no hookups and no dump station. Cell phone reception is absolutely nil if you have AT&T, and that includes pretty much anywhere in south Mt. Rainier National Park. Not even at the visitor center, and there's no wi-fi there, either. They have a pay phone that's it. The campground is... More

La Wis Wis Forest Service campground shows its age. I believe it was first established in 1937, as that is the date on the blueprints of the Forest Service building that is ostensibly being 'renovated'. Situated between the Ohanepecosh and Cowlitz rivers, it is dominated by towering, old growth firs and cedars. Strange to say, some giant trees have been... More

This is a dry camping State Campground, dry meaning no RV hook-ups. Water is available but you have to haul it from the roadside. Pit toilets are the primary bathrooms which make it less desirable than more developed camp sites. Now, the reasons we love La Wis Wis, two rives run through or by the campgrounds with easy access from... More

Wonderful Place to get away. Get easy hikes to explore in the area. Usually stop on our way to the beach or on the return trip. This time stopped after a day at Mt Rainier for a quick hike to Blue Hole.

Our campsite was cozy and surrounded by forest. Nice and private, just adjacent to the river and close to the bathroom. The bathroom is basically a hole in the ground. It's gross, but it didn't smell. No water, so be prepared. We washed our dishes in the river first to conserve our water then brought them back to camp to... More

La Wis Wis was a great campground and the camp host's worked very hard to get people into camp sites. Centrally located to all kinds of activities at Mount Rainier. Packwood is a small town close enough if you need camp provisions. We did not make the hike to Blue Hole, but we walked the short trail and explored the... More

La Wis Wis is just what the doctor ordered. Half way between Mount Rainier and Mount Saint Helens east side this campground is amazing. Pit toilet only. Water available. Make the trek up to Blue Hole and jump in, if you dare! Try to get a camp site on the river, if you can. Reservations possible.

After travelling all day on our motorcycles, my son and I stayed here for a night. It was easy to find and once there peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. We were situated near the stream surrounded by really tall trees. There was a couple of picnic tables and a fire ring. They even delivered firewood! There was a water supply across... More
