Rainier Wilderness & Backcountry Camping: Hikers and backpack
campers will find an abundance of opportunity to camp in the backcountry at Mount
Rainier National Park.   The Backcountry camping areas are divided into both campsites
and wilderness zones - all of which have limits on their use.  Reservations can be made at
two-thirds of the sites and zones while the others are available on a first-come first served
basis the day prior to your trip start date.  These reservations go quickly.  Reservations
are handled through the Longmire Wilderness Center starting Memorial Day Weekend.  
To see the different wilderness zones and campsites check our hiking maps in the
Rainier
Map Section.  For more information on wilderness camping you can download the NPS
wilderness Campground Guide here.    Camping for Climbers Info

Rainier National Forest Campgrounds
U.S. Forest Service operates numerous Campgrounds outside the Park - primarily in the
Snowqualmie/Mt. Baker National Forest to the North and East and the Gifford Pinchot
National Forest to the south.  USFS campgrounds typically can't accommodate any RV
over 22-24ft. and only have water hookups.  Closest USFS campgrounds on the south are:

Big Creek Campground - A small campground close to the west entrance of Mt. Rainier
National Park. Tight turning radius for vehicles.  RV Limit 22ft.

La Wis Wis Campground - Located just off Highway 12. Popular for long stay camping and
for overnighters passing through. Some sites are large enough for RVs.  Nice campsites
among some large trees along the river. There are short trails nearby and day use
picnicking as well.
