Mt. Rainier is a popular Western Washington destination. The National Park website has some information on "Avoid[ing] Summer Congestion," specifically noting that the Paradise and Sunrise parking lots fill up by "early morning."

On a given summer weekend, approximately what time do those lots fill up? Are we talking 6 a.m., 8 a.m.?


I've been there few times at different times of the day (mostly between 10 am and 1pm) this summer and was always able to find parking. Park authorities always displayed parking lot full boards but I was always able to find a spot.

Hope that helps!
