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 sulphur odor). These springs have been used by the Campbell family since the 1940’s.

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.

Current Status Update:

We are now getting into the summer vacation season.  Reservations are a good idea as we are getting more weekday business.  We are now full for Memorial Weekend.            We are having an issue with the email form at times.  Sometimes a request is not reaching us.  If you do not receive an auto-acknowledgment in a few minutes, your request did not go through!  The next best step is to send a regular email to gilahotsp@gmail.com with your name, dates requested and number of guests.  We will get back to you asap.            (This problem should be fixed within a week)
