We booked a tour of White Pocket at short notice, as we were passing through and Steve and Susan from Paria Outpost and Outfitters were amazing with the level of service and hospitality they provided. I truly recommend taking a tour with them as they were so incredibly friendly, informative and the tour was very personal. Steve was very professional... More

We spent the day with Steve of Paria Outfitters on a tour of South Coyote Butte and White Pocket. The scenery and tour was fantastic but what struck us more was what Steve did to help complete strangers. On the way out 3 young ladies were stuck in the sand. Steve stopped and pulled them out but refused any payment.... More

Susan and Steve go out of their way to make sure that their clients have a special experience in this most amazing part of our country. Cannot wait to return for another adventure with this really great group of people!

If you can get a permit for Coyote Buttes, head to Paria Outpost for a wonderful guided hike. Susan Dodson took my husband and I and two other people on a personal guided hike of the Buttes. She made the day extremely special with her knowledge of the geology and photography tips. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

This is a great, friendly but professional husband and wife venture. They were the first to apply for ,and be granted ,a licence to guide in this wonderful area and we chose them to take us to White Pocket after reading glowing reviews. We had no regrets whatsoever and were treated to a very memorable day with Susan as our... More

Steve took us to see the South Coyote Butte area. He's a great guy and super knowledgeable about the area. We spent all day, it was well worth it. We will definitely call them again for another tour the next time we're in the area.

We had enough time to spend at The Wave and Dallas had never rush us at any points! Btw, avocado sandwich made by Susan was... More

Steve from Paria Outpost made our stay in the US very special, as he shared the most beautiful places of the Coyote Buttes South and White Pocket with us! He not only knew where to find the most spectacular places but also when to be there to have the best light for taking photos of these. By the way, we... More

Steve and Susan were great to work with in getting the trip set-up. They sent us out early due to the hot weather with Mike Leinen as our guide. The suburban was comfortable and well equipped. Mike's confident and smooth driving kept us feeling safe and took away all anxieties of a long trip through deep sand in hot temperatures.... More

I've been to this part of Utah on many occasions and have taken a few organised tours, but I have to say that the Paria Outpost tour run by the Dodsons (Steve and Susan) was truly exceptional. I had a permit for South Coyote Buttes reserved online a few months in advance, and booking with Paria Outpost was easy and... More
