We were informed on 7/1/2020 by Mt. Rainier National Park that there is a hazard tree impacting Cowlitz campsites 2 and 3. We have been in communication with the park to find alternatives for the campers, but at this time there are no current options and the only campsite available is Cowlitz 1. This has unfortunately, led us to close reservations for campsites 2 and 3 at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience this might have caused.

Campsites now available!

Cowlitz Tribal members may now book reservations for tribal campsites in the our own special section of the campground.

Ohanapecosh, or áwxanapayk-ash in Taytnapam Upper Cowlitz language, translates as “standing at the edge-place”, and refers to the cliff edges of the bedrock gorge through which the Ohanapecosh river flows.

Ohanapecosh Campground, on the southeast side of Mount Rainier National Park, is surrounded by old growth forest and crossed by an exceptionally beautiful snow-fed river. Close to Ohanapecosh are popular hikes to Silver Falls and the Grove of the Patriarchs.

The main attraction at Mount Rainier National Park is the mountain itself, a glacier-clad volcano of immense proportions. At 14,411 ft., it dominates the skyline for hundreds of miles. Visitors travel through majestic old-growth forests, past tumbling waterfalls and historic buildings to reach sub-alpine meadows, where world-famous wildflower displays are seen in July and August. Popular activities in the park include sight-seeing, hiking, climbing and camping.

Ohanapecosh campground has an elevation of 1,914 feet. Weather is dry, cool and sunny in the summer with daytime temperatures in the 60 to 80-degree range. Even though the eastern side of the park can be sunnier than other areas, weather can be variable and visitors should come prepared.
