The diversity of habitat in southwestern New Mexico makes the Silver City area a year-round bird watching destination. The Gila River with its lush river willow thickets and cottonwoods provides prime habitat for 60% of the bird species seen in our state. The scenic mountains of the Gila National Forest and surrounding grasslands expand opportunities to see a variety of species. 339 species have been seen in our area. The spring migrations usually begin in mid-April.
The KOA has a kid's playground, basketball court, soccer field, volleyball, tether ball, horseshoes, and sports equipment. There is also a seasonal heated pool and hiking trails.
