The Three Rivers Petroglyph Site has more than 21,000 glyphs of birds, humans, animals, fish, insects and plants, as well as numerous geometric and abstract designs are scattered over 50 acres of New Mexico's northern Chihuahuan Desert. The petroglyphs at Three Rivers, dating back to between about 900 and 1400 AD, were created by Jornada Mogollon people who used stone tools to remove the dark patina on the exterior of the rock. A small pueblo ruin is nearby and Sierra Blanca towers above to the east. A detailed petroglyph guide is available at the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site.

Three Rivers is a developed recreation site that has hiking, camping, and picnicking amenities. The site offers five shelter sites with picnic tables and cooking grills (one is handicap accessible); one group site that has three picnic tables under a shelter and two grills; two RV sites have covered picnic tables and grills and water and electric hookups. Five locations are also established for tent use, within defined boundaries. One of the tent locations is at the handicap accessible site. Restrooms and drinking water are available. Pets are allowed in the campground (on leash) but are not allowed on the trails.

The campground hosts will reside at the campground host site. They will be in a fenced in yard that includes: a 30/50 amp RV electrical system, large and shaded pad for RV, water, sewage, washer, dryer, refrigerator, and freezer. There is also extra storage space in the fenced-in area for use by BLM employees to store equipment and supplies. If a couple, one host will be reimbursed at $27 per day and the other host will be reimbursed at $12 per day. If only one individual, they will be reimbursed at $27 per day.
