    Have inexpensive fun this summer. Take kids camping in tent at our world destination Mt. Rainier National Park. Spend $12 per nite. Seniors get in for $6.00 with pass. Stop at Cougar Rock Camground only 2 1/2 hours from Everett. Go through Puyallup route. You don’t need reservations if you arrive early in the week. Cougar Rock always has first-come first serve camp sites. Campfires, evening programs and hiking are abundant.Kids will love it!!

    Although campsites are available on a first come, first served basis, you can reserve sites at the Cougar Rock campground by visiting the National Recreation Reservation Service web site. You may also call (877) 444-6777 in the United States [(877)833-6777 for TDD] or (518) 885-3639 if calling internationally. If you plan to camp at Cougar Rock between late June and early September, reservations are strongly recommended. If you need more information, just go to the National Park web site http://www.nps.gov and link to Mt. Rainier.
