I've stayed at this park before and had a pleasant experience. The park now appears to be going through some hard times. The pool was drained (probably because of drought) and the general appearance was a little unkempt and maintenance a little lacking. One of the campers said that the owners were very ill and the park was being run by an inexperienced relative. It shows. There is also a railroad crossing very near and the trains run all night. If you don't like train horns, this might be a little annoying. Overall, still not a bad place to spend a night.

This park has 2 names. Raton Pass Camp and Cafe and Cedar Rails. The website show 2 different parks. Cedar Rails on bottom and Raton Pass on top. If you go to the top park, Raton Pass, the lady from the Cedar Rails office will chew you out for not stopping there first. My view was of a sheer rocky bluff 50 feet off my front bumper and I-25 out my side window. Water usage is limited, as is sewer and wi-fi. There is no cable tv service. Their rules are very clear as to the amount of these items that you can use per day. (don't bathe the kids) Sharp turns make access by big rigs not fun. I will definitely not stay again.

We stayed here in a motor home pulling a trailer. The site was plenty long but very tight to maneuver out of due to a fence directly in front. The street corners were also very tight. The entrance from the street has 2 dips that will make a big rig drag bottom. Be very careful. There is a nearby feed lot that will run you inside when the wind is from the west. The pads were dirt and level, the staff was friendly and helpful. It had just rained when we were here, so the dog runs were mud holes. The sewer hook ups are at the very rear of the sites, so bring an extra long sewer hose. Wi-Fi and cable were adequate. We will not stay here again due to the strong possibility of damage caused by the entrance area. It appears that the majority of the people in the park live here full time.

On check in, the clerk spent several minutes pushing the restaurant. We tried it. Bad mistake. Overpriced, overcooked, served on a paper plate. On the plus side, service was excellent. We were told our site was a 90 ft site. We barely fit with a 40 ft motorhome and a toad. Toad rear bumper in road, RV front bumper in road. No sewer dump at site, but told that there was a community dump on the exit road. No Wi-Fi, in spite of being assured there was. Very poor TV selections, unless you like 1970's re-runs. It rained briefly. The gravel sites turned to mud sites. This place makes Wal Mart parking lots look like 5 star accommodations.

Very friendly folks. Campground right on Rio Grand River that is stocked by the park. Excellent fishing. Large meadow for dog walking or exercise. Plenty of group activities organized by full time activities director. Most of the campers here have been here before and keep returning. We will definitely be back.

Packed in like sardines and the staff (work campers) were very unfriendly. I would dry camp beside the road before staying here again.

This place is a dump. Old, trashy and no effort made to clean up. Their website shows fishing piers and a cleaning station, but they do not exist. The waterfront is covered with old broken chunks of concrete covered with oyster shells and trash. The office was so full of cigarette smoke that it was difficult to breathe. So if you're allergic to nicotine, avoid this place. The site was so short that I stuck out into the street both front and rear. We were too close to the rig next door to walk between the rigs.

Excellent, very well maintained park. Concrete, level pads throughout. The park is operated by LCRA and that's a pain, but overall, excellent.

This park is located right on the Rio Grande River. Excellent evening activities and very friendly folks. Some of the sites are very close together and reservations need to be made several months in advance. Clean and very well maintained.
