We have stayed at this RV park several times on our way from and to Colorado. The personnel are great. The sites are wide enough and even with big rigs reasonably easy to park. The park itself is clean and basic but the staff makes this park above others in the area. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

Pleasant staff, but my beef is this: The entire place is gravel and mud. Yes, they had had a bunch of rain recently and said that when it was dry, the campground was solid and hard as rock, but none of the camp pad areas were built up in rock at all.They were just ground level. Looked to us like a campground that lives off its KOA name and location, but does not seem to re-invest in itself. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

We decided to stay here overnight before heading up the mountain to Colorado Springs. Our GPS took us to the exit on I-25 south of the park and it was closed due to construction. So we drove almost 3 miles to the next exit, not sure if we u-turned, the northbound exit would be open. Not being familiar with the area, I called the office. They weren't aware the exit was closed. I got good directions, but thought it odd that they didn't know their exit was closed. Staff was friendly and helpful and guided us to our spot. It was easy to navigate the park with a big rig. The spot, however, was very muddy with deep ruts from previous rigs. The rest of the park was in adequate shape and I appreciated the KOA dog park and the grass on the perimeter to walk my dog. Restaurants are nearby and close to I-25 but far enough away to be quiet. Verizon cell, data and air card worked well. Not a fancy park but it worked for overnight. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

Park was clean, large gravel sites which are close to level. Staff is friendly, and escorted us to our site. Restrooms were clean! Laundry was small but adequate. Stores and restaurants located nearby. RV park near I-25, easy to get to with big rig, although signage is hard to see until you are at the entrance. Far enough away from highway, no noise! Has a good dog area! Good place to stay overnight! We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

Overnight stop! Water & electric only. Did not unhook from truck. In around 7pm. Staff very courteous, check in very smooth and escorted to site. Not somewhere I would consider for a long vacation, but very convenient for an overnight safe & secure, stopping place. We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lady in the office and the guy who guided us to the site were both friendly. There were a number of sites that appeared long term and they were real neat. There was road noise that wasn't too bad. We camped at Raton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical KOA and very well run as everyone is helpful. Sites are good size and easy to get into and level. Laundry room clean and reasonably priced. Easy on and off from the freeway. Would stay here again. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a good stopover for a night stay. It isn't a resort, but the sites are flat, gravel, and have adequate access. Don't care for the Tengo internet, but I have my own. Recommended for a short stay. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

Not much to look at. The road in and the sites are gravel and dirt. Each site has a picnic table, a bar-b-q and a small amount of dead grass/weeds. The young man that worked the office was very nice. I checked out the laundry; there are 4 washers ($1.00) and 4 dryers ($1.00). Would not stay here again as I think $39 is extremely high for what you get. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

This park has great potential. The person who checked it in was very friendly and helpful. But it's very dusty and barren. A little paving, some grass, and clean up the junky areas could make it go from satisfactory to great. Restrooms/showers were nicely maintained. Will probably stay again passing through. We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nothing great, but certainly nothing bad. Good place to stay overnight or to tour Raton area. All gravel. Sites are level. Very friendly staff. Easy access a little off of I-25. Evening ice cream social and morning pancake breakfast (in season). We will stay here again. We camped at Raton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this park over the years when we are passing through on our way home. It's not a bad park, just not great. It needs some maintenance like trimming trees at the entrance & some of the sites that have trees so that they don't scratch the RV's. The park is totally dirt & the only grass is along the perimeter fence.The park is ok if you need something overnight but at $35.00 for 50 amp it's overpriced since the amenities are VERY minimal. They have free wifi which is nice if you can actually pick up a decent signal. We couldn't & the park isn't very big. If it wasn't a hot August day we could have tolerated a 30 amp site but it was way too hot & we needed both AC's to keep up with the heat. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.
