White Horse Lake is known for its fantastic fishing, hiking in the mountains, mountain biking, scenic overlooks, and dams are in the direct location as well. There are many other lakes around, and the densely forested Kaibab Forest surrounds for you to enjoy and explore. The trees in the forest and around the campground make for ideal shady areas to camp out and relax, and temperatures get to 90 degrees in the summertime.
At the actual campsite, you will find campsites with tables for eating and relaxing, fire rings for campfires and cooking food, grills, and a tent pad for pitching your tent. You can also opt to camp in the big group site that can accommodate 60 people at a time. Trash cans, restrooms, fresh water, boat ramp, firewood, picnic area, restaurant, trash collection, and vault toilets are located at the campground also.
The campground is quiet and peaceful and away from any major roads with traffic noise. Peak season is from May to September, so this is the most crowded time to visit. All other months of the year are walk-in compatible.
Dogs are allowed to camp with you at White Horse Lake Campground, but they should wear a leash at all times. You should always make sure they have lots of fresh water to drink and a cool and shady place to sleep and relax. Poop bags are not provided at the park, so bring your own so you can clean up after your dog.
Overall, this campground is excellent for those looking to stay close to Grand Canyon National Park, but not camp at Mathers Campground directly in the park. A more peaceful and shaded location is great for you, your dog, and your family.
