Prices & Rules

hotspring7We use self-registration when you arrive. It is up to you to fill out an envelope, include the appropriate fee, and drop it into the letterbox. Proceed to the campsite noted in your reservation.  A caretaker will be around several times a day to make change if necessary. Please note We cannot accept credit or debit cards.  Bring cash – the nearest ATM is in Silver City.

Camping: To stay overnight at the campground, the fee is $12.00 per person/per night. This includes the use of the hot pools, during both day and night hours.

Day use is $8.00 per person/per day, children are the same price as adults. Day use is limited to the hours of 9 am to 6 pm,  a 2-hour limit on site.  Day Use gives you access to all the facilities except the campsites.   No reservations for day use.  You must self-register, and pre-pay for a time slot if no attendant is present.  (Follow directions on the clipboard at the desk.)

We encourage reservations for overnight camping. There is no deposit required, as we cannot process credit cards. However, we ask that if you cannot attend, please inform us by phone or email that you will not be coming so we can use that camp for others.
A whiteboard at the Registration trailer has your name on a campsite number and a nearby map for reference.
There are several Forest Service campgrounds where you can spend the night if we are full and then move to our campground when a site opens up. The Gila Hotsprings Ranch RV sites also allow camping. Check with their host upon arrival, or look at their website here.


1. A quiet, respectful attitude is mandatory.   This campground has evolved into an area that appeals to those who like to listen to nature, not to music or raucous crowds.   Consequently, no music (except acoustical) or rowdy behavior among adults or children is permitted.  This is private property and disrespecting our rules is grounds for terminating your stay.

2. Checkout time is 11:00 A.M.   You can arrive any time after that.  Be considerate to other campers; please do not arrive after 10.00 P.M!

2. Our campsites and roads are primarily designed for passenger vehicles.  However, we allow small recreational vehicles if self-contained and only about 20′ in length.  No generators.

3. No group larger than 8 persons without a reservation or prior approval.

4. Day use (soaking, not camping) is restricted to 9 am to 6 pm, and group size no more than 6 persons.  A time limit of 2 hours on site.  Fill out the sheet on the clipboard for your reservation according to instructions.

5. No glass, food, or smoking at the pools for safety and sanitation reasons. Drinking water is OK and encouraged!

6. No alcoholic beverages in the pool area or while walking around. (Please reference the NM Open Container Law. Alcohol is permitted in your camp area only).

7. No firearms are to be discharged in the camping area.

8. Pets are allowed as long as they are disciplined and quiet. There is a limit of 2 dogs.  Additional charges may apply.   (Pets are never allowed in the pools!)

9. Campfires are limited to existing fire rings.

10. So that everyone feels welcome and comfortable, suits are required in the pools.  After dark, clothing may be optional, provided all in the pool are comfortable with this.  We expect all guests to be respectful of others.
