Owner description: Tourist center located on the southeastern side of Rainier National Park offering information on trout and fly-fishing.
Reviewed 27 November 2012

We thought this visitor center felt a little isolated, unused and empty. It was also fairly dated. We enjoyed a short walk from here (Hot Springs Nature Trail) and it was worth the stop considering we were passing but I don’t think it is worth going out of your way for.

Maybe this is for most people who are campers in that area. The Rangers are very good with the information.

We camped with a large group over 4 sites. The area was beautiful with good ground cover throughout. The nearby stream and river were also fun for the kids to play with, but be careful with the log jams from the 2006 flooding - I wouldn't recommend climbing or playing on them especially for kids. Nice quiet campground with good facilities, no showers however. The visitor's center was great for learning more about the area. Rangers were helpful and kept on top of things.

Haven't been there camping for a couple years. Enjoyed it alot so was driving by & wanted to stop for a few hours to walk up to falls again. Was very disappointed to find out they only have about 12 day use parking spots. Therefore was unable to park for even a short time. Will not bother to just stop in again.

This campground is one of the most well maintained camp sites. Clean, scenic, river flowing through, great hikes. We stayed for a night but I wish if we could stay longer. There's a firewood guy which roams around the loops until late night, so don't bother bringing the firewood. There's a picnic bench and firepit for every camp site with a lot of privacy from neighboring sites.

The silver falls hike is very nice and the falls at the end is gorgeous. Do the whole loop to get nicer views around the campsite. There's also suppose to be a hanging bridge to cross the river which we missed. The rangers don't advertise much. This site is very popular so book 3-4 months in advance. We plan to book ours next year in spring.
