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.

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. In the heat of the summer, this water is the best way to cool off.

This area is the perfect spot to set up base camp before heading out on some local adventures such as The Wave, Wire Pass, or Buckskin Gulch. The surrounding landscape has weeks of adventure suitable for all skill levels and adventure tastes.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
