It is one of many communities which make up the Campo Indian Reservation. It is not to be confused with Campo, California which is 7 miles to the southwest. Mexico is 3 miles to the south. There around 25 or so housing units in Campo. About a half a mile to the west are Campo government buildings, including the Southern Indian Health Council. The population of Campo is probably between 75 and 100. The surrounding area is mountainous and has the appearance of a very lush desert. However, the climate conditions are not arid or desert like. The region receives around 15 inches of precipitation a year. You'll notice in the google earth photos the rocky terrain. Elevation is 3,470 feet about sea level. Since the elevation is nearly 3,000 feet higher up than the extreme southeastern corner of the Campo Indian Reservation, it is not as hot in the summer and not as warm in the winter. Below are several google earth photos of Campo.
