General Info

Whiteriver is located 20 miles South of Pinetop/Lakeside Arizona in the lower White Mountains.  Weather can be an issue in driving through the Salt River Canyon on the way to us or driving across the Mogollon Rim through Payson.  Those teams from out of town wishing to stay overnight would find hotels in Pinetop or Show Low, Arizona.  The Hon Dah Resort and Casino is the closest place to stay right at the Northern border of the reservation.

Alchesay High School is located on the West side of the main road through town.  Turn West on Cemetary for 400 yards then right onto campus through the 2nd set of black iron gates on 3rd.
