“Small town, small park, good location”

This is a very small park located in the tiny town of Randle, WA. The spots are level and plenty big. Elk wander through the campground at random intervals, which is entertaining. The staff is very friendly and helpful, a very small town attitude. The best thing about this place is its proximity to Mt Rainier.

It was the autumn of '13. We were younger, still dependent on full hookups in our old then-more-broken-down-than-now Airstream, and were desperate for some small town Washington.

Upon rolling into town, the service on our Jetpack and phones as dry as a Yakima drainage ditch, the park looked inviting. But 15 minutes to Mt. Rainier's southern entrance, a coffee shop and library next door, we used our cunning and charisma to secure WiFi from both establishments, that I could work away the mornings, and toil at the beauty of finding nature in the afternoons all through the National Park and Gifford-Pinchot National Forests.

That it was autumn and rainy, the RV park itself was empty. So the minuscule spots didn't seem quite as tight as when we just drove by a few days ago. The owners were a little strange, as remote mountain folk can be, but very friendly at the same time. One item of note was their apprehension at giving us quarters—to be used in their own washing machines—but no more so than the local grocery store. Quarters, it seems, are a rare delicacy this side of Randle, Washington.

Elk grazed just outside our door by the dozens. Sometimes it was even frightening how close they'd get. Elk are not easily spooked like deer, and tend to attack when provoked. What defines "provoked" is a shady grey.

But we survived for weeks unscathed. Meanwhile, an occasional sunny day would mean you could see the top of Rainier from the park, from just about anywhere in town. The coffee shop made us cupcakes for our youngest son's first birthday. The Blue Spruce bar came complete with craft brews, fried food and football, peppered with some video games and salty locals. Poker was played. The grocery store was adequate, and the proximity to trails through old growth, around pristine lakes, and into the mountains was sublime.

We'd stay again, but only if the national park campgrounds were all closed and/or if I needed to work during the week (as there is no service except US Cellular anywhere in the area, the closest AT&T is an hour away at White Pass, and Verizon's 4 bars of 1x is useless).

The only other item of note is the medics box full of used needles in the bathroom, which I'll admit scared me with our youngsters using the showers.
