Mr Rainier National Park
Sunshine Point Campground, just inside the Nisqually Entrance, was destroyed and has not reopened. When the Pacific Forest Reserve was created in , Muir quickly persuaded the newly formed Sierra Club to support a movement to protect Rainier as a national park. The park provides opportunities for people to experience, understand, and care for the park environment, and also provides for wilderness experiences and sustains wilderness values.
