About Grapevine Campground

This campground is on the banks of the Gila River and has beautiful cliffs serving as a natural backdrop.

The Grapevine Campground is named for an actual old grapevine that can be seen today. Today there is a large chain around it to protect it. The East, West and Middle Forks of the Gila River come together in this campground.

The best of the best!

We spent a week road trip camping around New Mexico and this was our favorite campsite, despite the lack of upkeep on the restrooms and the trash strewn around which we attempted to clean up. Even with all that, the confluence of the east, west and middle forks of the Gila River at Grapevine Campground made for a magical experience.

In late September there were only a couple of other groups at the campground, which doesn't have designated sites per se, but fire rings are clearly established. There is also a JEEP road whose trail cuts across the river which looked really fun. 

We fell asleep to the sounds of the river and woke the next morning to the sun filtered through the giant trees. This campground is a real gem, really hope that people start taking care of it better!

Pro tip: There is no water at the campground, but up at Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument we were able to fill up our 10 gallon tank free-of-charge.

Nice. Right next to the Gila River.

Lots of shade, restrooms, no trash service.
