Randy King - Mount Rainier National Park

Randy King is the current Superintendent of Mount Rainier National Park, after being appointed in October 2011. Mount Rainier is Randy’s 8th national park assignment. He has worked all over the US, and even in a World Heritage Area exchange in Australia.

Randy grew up in Michigan, and remembers spending most weekends outdoors with his family. His first experience of the national parks was during an extensive high school road trip with a cousin through most of the West Coast and the desert Southwest. He holds a degree from Michigan State in park and recreation resources, and during his college summers he worked in state parks.

Randy describes Mount Rainier National Park as “a powerful place that encompasses all you would expect from a national park.” He likes to get outside as much as possible, and still goes out to hike with his family almost every weekend.
