Question White Rim Advice?

We are looking at doing white rim the first part of May. I was wondering if any one can recommend a good campsite 1/2 way to get a permit for.

We would probably start the trail later in the morning, 9-10am looking at completing it in 2 days exploring as much as we can on the journey.

Also do they run out of permits or can I expect to show up and get one? It looks like they don't take reservations until July according to the website. We would be starting on a Thursday morning if getting a permit mid week is easier?

Thanks for any tips!

If you are planning on doing white rim, I would get a permit now if you are going to camp. I had no luck getting a camping permit for the first part of May.

White Crack is a nice campground, slightly less than half way from the east side (V.C. and Shafer entrance). Murphy Hogback is almost exactly halfway. Plan on 4-5 hours drive time to get to Murphy, and about 1/2 hour less to get to White Crack.

Like Skates said, I would call and make a reservation now. May is pretty busy down there.

We went in September and every campsite was reserved, in advance. We made our reservations at least 6 months in advance and all of the halfway camps were full, we camped at the riverside ones. Makes for one long day and one halfday.

Always bring a compass, it is awkward to have to eat your friends.
