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 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 or visit the Paria Contact Station.

Accessibility Description (ABA/ADA):
The vault toilets and drive-up campsites meet ADA accessibility standards.
