Title: Population of Gila Hot Springs

Background: Anita Deming is a National Park Volunteer and has been a resident in the Gila Hot Springs community since 1996.

Q: How many people live in Gila Hot Springs?

A: I have been told that there are 12 people that live here year round. That number seems low to me because I see quite a few houses around plus all of the park service who live here. I would say less than 50 people total.
