Whitehouse Campground is located in the Boulder River drainage, approximately 30 miles north of Butte. The campground has 5 units that will accomodate trailers up to 22 feet and a day use area. The campground is adjacent to the Boulder River which offers opportunities for fishing. The area has additional dispersed camping just to the east of the campground.
The campground is popular during the late spring, summer and fall for camping as well as hunting and OHV riding opportunities. Access to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is provided at several trailheads within 5 miles of the campground. There is a groomed snowmobile system that begins at Whitehouse Campground or at a pullout to the east of Whitehouse (depending on snow conditions).
Whitehouse Campground is the only campground of three along the upper boulder river that still exist as a full fledged campground. The other two are now just disperse primitive camping areas. Whitehouse Campground is listed as having 5 campsite, but during our visit counted 12 site with tables and fire rings. The fire rings appear to be all rock rings until you check and find they all have metal fire rings with rocks that have been placed around the rings. Three other sites with rock only fire rings with no tables have also been built by past visitors to the area. The campground has one vault toilet and there is a hand pump at the entrance to the campground just behind the information sign on the right hand site of the drive in to the campground across from the first available site. This is a Trash-in Trash-out campground so come prepared to haul your trash back out with you. The first two sites you drive through are in the trees and isolated from all the other sites, the other sites sit in a fairly open area and are all in site of each other. If you want to go on a nice hike just head the 2 miles up Thunderbolt Mountain road across the road from the campground entrance for a 4.5 mile hike to Cottonwood lake with decent fishing for cutthroat trout. White house campground gets very busy during the fall hunting season and tends to have a steady amount of campers though out the summer months. Have stayed here several times and have always been able to get a site with a table and fire ring during the summer season, but best to avoid during hunting season. Their is no cost to camp at Whitehouse Campground
