White House Campground

White House Campground is a small, quiet campground set in a white sandstone cove beside the Paria River. Its location makes it popular with hikers beginning or ending trips into the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness and with those looking for a base camp while exploring the southern Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

White House Campground is open year-round. A redesign and expansion of the site was completed in 2019, and the campground now has seven drive-up and five walk-in campsites. All campsites are for individual groups; the campground does not offer group sites. Amenities include two vault toilets, fire rings and grills, picnic tables, tent pads, and a sand/gravel access road. Drinking water and trash disposal are available at the Paria Contact Station at the northern end of the campground access road. The campground is not suited for vehicles or trailers longer than 25 feet. Pets are allowed, but they must be leashed, and their waste must be disposed of properly. Stock animals (including horses) are not allowed in the campground.

Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis; they cannot be reserved. The fee is $5.00 per site/per night. Fees must be paid in cash or by check at the campground fee station. America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Senior and Access Passholders receive a 50% reduction in the campground fee; there are no discounts for other passholders.

White House Campground is generally accessible to two-wheel-drive vehicles, but after heavy rain and flooding, the road can become impassable. Exercise caution if considering a stay when heavy rain has been forecast; if the road washes out, it may not be possible to leave for some time. The BLM does not close the campground due to weather concerns. For information on current road conditions and weather, contact the Kanab Visitor Center (BLM) in Kanab, UT or visit the Paria Contact Station.

ADA Description:
The vault toilets and drive-up campsites meet ADA accessibility standards.
