Mount Rainier July reservations for Sunrise, Paradise open Monday

Visitors to Mount Rainier this summer will need a reservation to enter certain parts of the park during peak hours of 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Excerpt form The Seattle Times:

Reservations to visit the Sunrise and Paradise areas of Mount Rainier National Park this July open at 8 a.m. Monday. 

Reservations, you say?

Yes — visitors to Mount Rainier this summer will need a reservation to enter certain parts of the park during peak hours of 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to the National Park Service.

The reservations are part of a pilot system to provide a better experience for visitors, who have been flocking to the park in increasing numbers every year, NPS said in a January online news release.

From May 24 to Sept. 2 during peak hours, visitors will need a reservation to enter the Paradise Corridor from either the Nisqually Entrance via Highway 706 or Stevens Canyon Entrance via Highway 123.

From July 4 to Sept. 2, visitors will need a reservation to enter the Sunrise Corridor at the White River Entrance via Highway 410.

Reservations for dates through June for Paradise opened online Feb. 21.

Reservations can be made at Recreation.gov or by calling 877-444-6777. Reservations do not replace the standard park entrance fee, which is $30 per vehicle.

Visitors do not need a reservation to enter the park outside peak hours.
