If you were looking for “glamping” at Mount Rainier back in the late 1800s or early 1900s, Camp of the Clouds was the way to go.

“Camp of the Clouds was first established in 1886 at the 5,900-foot level on the east end of Alta Vista Ridge. The tent hotel was set up and removed each year. It offered a spectacular view of both the mountain and the Tatoosh Ridge.” (Mount Rainier National Park, by Donald Johnstone.)
