Plan Your Visit
Mount Rainier has five developed areas: Longmire, Paradise, Ohanapecosh, Sunrise, and Carbon/Mowich. Although the level of development in these areas ranges from basic (little more than a campground and picnic area) to extensive (hotel, restaurant, visitor center, campgrounds, and picnic areas), each can serve as a base for exploring the rest of the park.
Essential information necessary to plan your visit includes fees, hours of operation, road status, weather, and current conditions. Print or download trail maps and other brochures before your visit. All this and more can be found under Basic Information.
Directions to the park's five entrances from the surrounding areas, as well as maps of the park.
Information about events, programs, and fee free days.
Although many of the developed areas at Mount Rainier National Park predate laws requiring fully accessible facilities, we are working to ensure that all visitors can experience and enjoy the park. Learn more about accessibility in the different areas of the park.
Mount Rainier is within a half–day's drive of numerous recreational and educational opportunities in the Pacific Northwest.
