Gila Hot Springs Campground is a private business owned by Allen and Carla Campbell. It offers camping and natural hot spring pools beside the Gila River in southwest New Mexico. We are located 40 miles north of Silver City and about 4 miles from the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. Our area is surrounded by the Gila Wilderness and the larger Gila National Forest.
The hot springs bubble out of rocks on property owned by the Campbell family. The springs vary in temperatures from 147 to 154 degrees F. and are considered sweet springs (no sulfur odor). These springs have been used by the Campbell family since the 1940s.
Other local businesses are Doc Campbell’s Post, an interesting country store, and the Gila Hot Springs Ranch and RV park. These two businesses are separate from our Campground and have their own websites (see links above) with contact information.
Silver City, known as the “Gateway to the Gila Wilderness”, is the closest town of any size. Travel time from Silver City to the Gila Hot Springs is about an hour and 20 minutes on Highway 15. More about Silver City, NM.
