We drove through just to check it out when we saw the sign. They take reservations and seemed pretty booked for the weekend. There's a couple different loops depending on your trailer size. They have regular flush toilets. There was a creek and beautiful massive trees. The only downside seemed to be the spots were on top of each other. I believe the sign said $12 a night but could be wrong as I didn't write it down.

“Luscious old growth only 3 miles outside of Rainier...”

We'd decided to return to Ohanapecosh for the weekend, but even showing up at 1pm on a Thursday proved unfruitful, so we headed back down to La Wis Wis.

There are signs reading "nah bud, if you've got a long trailer stay in the A loop."

A loop was, I believe as volcanic scientists have deemed it, "super weak sauce". Well, the river spots would have been a bingo winner, but they're all mostly reservable (and had already been reserved) or double sites costing $38 / night. So, despite the other sign which read "Loops B-E, Small Trailers and Tents Only", we went for it.

And scored. B loop is okay. The other loops are fabulous. Massive chunky old growth Douglas-firs and Western hemlocks, Pacific yews and vine maples lining the undergrowth. River sites are fabulous but they're not the only or even necessarily the best spots to snag.

Absolutely no service of any kind. Never found a dump station, though we may have simply missed it.

If someone were holding a rusty old gun to my head, the kind you can still pawn because they're so old and vintage, I'd 101% say this place was every bit as good as Ohanapecosh simply because it's only a few minutes to get into the national park, and ten or fifteen minutes closer to Packwood, plus it feels just like the park here...
