Who needs that fancy White House over in Washington D.C. when you can camp at the White House Campground? Your experience here will be markedly less fancy (and lacking in houses that are white), but as far as we’re concerned that’s completely ideal. If you plan on heading out into the great unknown (aka the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness), then this campground will be your perfect base camp, because it also functions as the trailhead for hikers looking to explore the wilderness. Since it’s a small camping area, you won’t have to deal with crazy crowds, either. As long as you come prepared with your own water supply, you’re going to have a fantastic time out here.

This campground was amazing! Can't wait until we have time to get back. So peaceful and beautiful with the Buckskin Gulch near by.

Quiet, beautiful, clean campground. Loved the walk-in tent sites nestled in the rocks.

White House was a great place to stay. I was on my way from Las Vegas to lake Powell and passed by. its a little bit of a drive but not bad. I did it just fine in a Nissan Altima. It does gonover a wash so if it's been raining you might not be able to reach it. When I got there there was no one there but a car at the trail head. The vault bathrooms were clean. They were renovating the campground at the time and it was free to stay during work. As a woman traveling alone I was a little apprehensious to stay there alone but as I left someone else showed up so I decided to stay. I'm glad I did. It was beautiful and the sky was the darkest, clearest sky I'd seen all summer. Great access to glen canyon. About a half hour away.

White House is super easy to reach, scenic and has everything you would need to kick off an adventure into Paria Canyon, the surrounding Vermillion Cliffs or plan your attack for attempting the ever-elusive lottery for The Wave hike.

The White House Trailhead & Campground sits just north of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. There are only 5 walk-in sites ($5 per night), very clean bathrooms, and grilled firepit/picnic tables in each site. The camping area is surrounded by beautifully sculpted and colored sandstone cliffs that make for fun quick hikes and gorgeous views of the area.

The Paria River cuts the desert landscape like a snake, winding through the wash just south of the camping area.
