Always a new adventure!

The White Mountain Apache Tribe is known for its world class hunting, excellent fishing, quiet camping, and amazing hikes. Our home is one of the best places in the world for Trophy Elk hunting, drawing in hunters from all over the world, to get a chance at a world class Trophy Bull Elk.

Looking for more fun and excitement? Hon-Dah Casino has the answer, and is located high up in the pines. With a fully functional Hotel and Conference Center, along with an arcade and a year round swimming pool, it is a great place to start. Then off to Sunrise Park Ski Resort, which turns into a powdery paradise in the winter. During the summer, Sunrise is a dream to escape to, with scenic lift rides, a fourth of July fireworks celebration, an awesome Archery shootout and great fishing at Sunrise Lake, or one of the many other Lakes or well stocked streams. Here, on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, we are proud to produce the Apache Trout, a species found nowhere else in the world.

Want to get a taste of the local life? Visit the tourism site to see a list of ceremonial dances, during which visitors must abide by a visitors code of conduct. Then there is the annual Hon-Dah Pow Wow, and the Annual WMAT Fair & Rodeo.

Always unique

Our home is very unique. It starts at about 2,600ft above sea level on our southwest side, and ranges all the way up to 11,400ft on the peak of Mt. Baldy on our eastern border, our most sacred mountain, providing year round recreation activities. Here on the White Mountain Apache Reservation we enjoy all four seasons.

Want to learn more? Come visit us at the historical Fort Apache, where the famous Apache Scouts were once posted. Also stop by our Culture Center & Museum, and take a look at Apache life. Theodore Roosevelt boarding school resides there and is still in operation today.
