“Quiet Thousand Trails Campground”
Paradise RV Campground, Thousand Trails
This Thousand Trails campground that was quiet and peaceful. Cell coverage was good and its in close proximity to Mount Rainier National Park. Surrounding scenery is beautiful and the park offers some really nice walks through the woods and around the pond to the dog area.
Spaces in this park are very tight. Mostly because the roads are narrow, sites are perched on a steep hill and most of the roads are one way making it a long slow drive out of the park. Once you find a spot long enough for your rig your good to go.
Although our spot wasn’t quite wide enough to accommodate our rig and the picnic table, we made do. There certainly wasn’t enough space for a fire ring, which by the way, are available to rent from the park store. We thought it was odd that only a few spaces had fire rings until we realized you have to request one. LOL
The park was relatively empty when we arrived on Sunday and stayed pretty quite during the week. It was nice to see it pick up on Friday and was busy with families enjoying the Father’s Day weekend.
Always be Prepared
One word of caution: the water system sprung a major leak and the water was shutoff the last few days we were there. Luckily we had 2/3 of a tank of water on-board. I spoke with the guests in the spot next to us and they stated that the last 3 times they has visited the park there have been water issues. I’m not complaining about it just want everyone to be aware that you shouldn’t arrive with an empty water tank or at least fill it up when you get there just to be safe. Once they did fix the leak there was a boil warning so extra glad we had clean water in our tank.
Would We Stay Again?
Overall this is a decent park. The pool area looked really nice and the pond is available for fishing and kayaking. What we liked most was the proximity to Mt Rainier National Park and will stay again if in the area.
