Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Driving lanes are huge and easy to navigate with a big rig. Wifi was extremely flaky and thus unusable. There were a lot of streetlights in the campground which I suppose is for security, but it made it difficult to sleep without hanging towels over all the bedroom windows and shutting interior doors. I would only stay here for an overnighter (which is what we did). We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here twice, going and coming on our trip to Colorado. A good place to overnight. Almost no shade except in the tent area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very few 50 amp sites, but we made it fine with 30 amps, since we really didn't need that 2nd air conditioner for the evening. There are not a lot of full hookup sites, so call early for a reservation. Wi fi was ok, good cable, which thrilled us after 3 weeks in Colorado with no TV at all. Sites are flat and level gravel: somewhat dusty. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

There is a grocery store just across the street from the campground. K Mart is also in that shopping center. K Bob's is very close, and we had a very good dinner there. Road noise did not bother us.

Very friendly owners. 50 amp site was long and wide. Picnic table was supplied but could use some loving care. Many full timers that had junkie rigs with unkept sites. I don't think we will be back. We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Not usually impressed with KOA's, but this is a nice no frills KOA, convenient to the interstate. Very wide, level gravel sites. Utilities very good (including cable) and very quiet in spite of being in town. It is in very good condition and well maintained. In speaking with the very pleasant owner, I could see his dedication to customer service and keeping his campground in good shape. I would definitely stay again.

OK stopover park. Sites are OK, some are not very level. Hookups are usable but could stand some maintenance (water leaks). Dog friendly with good dog walk area. Trash dumpster is located in the alley way and is not very convenient. Staff is friendly and made suggestions for area restaurants that were very good. The price I thought was high for the park, however there are not many choices in the area. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

All gravel, very little shade. Activities are noisy. This is a more reasonable KOA than normal. WIFI is very inadequate with a very small data allotment. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in June in a fifth wheel. check-in was quick and the staff is friendly. We had a wide pull through with full hook ups. The sites are wide and long. They are basic with gravel and a table. leveling is not hard but does require a little work with the jacks. Power, water and cable all worked well with no issues. This a basic park but is clean, quiet and good for an overnight stay. We have stayed here before and will be back. We camped at Raton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an average park in an urban setting and needs a bit more maintenance. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the park has a good dog walk area. We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Older park with gravel sites with grass around the sites. No pool but a nice grassy fenced in dog park. Nice trees throughout. The park is well maintained and the staff are helpful and friendly. We camped at Raton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hosts are super friendly, very accommodating, guided us to our site though there is plenty of room to maneuver.

Great mountain views here, very quiet.

If you are debating staying in Raton (New Mexico) or Trinidad (Colorado): don't, unless you are interested in Colorado's recreational vegetation. The Trinidad RV parks are really bad, do not compare to this one. We camped at Raton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.
