Located just on the New Mexico side or the CO-NM border. Multi-level as is not unusual in the mountains but it seemed easy to navigate with large rig w/towed. Utilities, restrooms, check-in were all good. Café was not open due to a shortage of employees. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Travel Trailer.

As the café was not open during our visit, it would be prudent to have enough beans to keep you through your stay.

This is an excellent and convenient stop off I-25 with a beautiful mountain view. Spots are close together so maneuvering can be tight. However, we were happy with our pull-through spot and full hook-ups. There was no store or cafe during our visit despite the name, but the staff was helpful and kind. Wi-Fi is limited. We will definitely return here next time we are in the area. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Come for the views and hospitality and enjoy a very nice camp ground while you are here. Views are awesome. Easy off and on. A little interstate noice, but only if you are outside and then not bad. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights on our way from NM to Colorado. What a nice place! The mountain views are lovely. The park is clean and well-organized. We didn't use the restrooms/showers/laundry but did see that they were very clean and functional. Although conveniently close to Highway 25, it's surprisingly not very noisy. Sprint Mifi had zero signal. Verizon cell had one bar. DirecTV satellite worked well. The park's wifi was painstakingly slow. Water pressure was fine. We enjoyed our time here and would definitely stay again if passing through the area.

I rated service a little bit low due to the office calling us to say they hadn't received our payment. I forwarded the payment confirmation email to them to evidence the payment was made. I appreciate that they called us in an effort to sort it out rather than simply canceling our reservation. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

This is a great park to stay in when travelling to or from Colorado. It is at the top of Raton Pass right on the Colorado-New Mexico border. We have stayed here several times before. Currently the café is not open due to not being able to find people to work there (according to the owner). Hopefully, it will re-open soon as this is a nice bonus when staying there. A nice super Walmart is located about 5 miles down the highway on the way to Trinidad. I highly recommend this rv park. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

There are golf courses in Raton, NM, and Trinidad, CO. The super Walmart is close by on I-25 on the way to Trinidad. There are lots of fast food as well as local restaurants in Trinidad.

Campground OK for a quick overnight. Electric was good, but water pressure was low and cell service was nonexistent, as was OTA TV. Clear shot at satellite, though. Owners friendly enough, but they have little to offer to make this a good park. Not a place for more than one overnight. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Town of Raton has seen better days. Most businesses are closed. Welcome Center clean and helpful. Santa Fe Trail runs through town as well as Capulin Volcano nearby and worth a visit.

Lucky to find this little RV park. Not many sites, but all facilities are well worth a stay. We stayed for 2 nights in motorhome. Site supervisor was courteous and obliging. Hopefully, this park will have an available site, if we ever return this way. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Great little campground. Best "Green Chili" we have had in a long time. Cafe was great, good prices, super food. Fun, friendly staff. If you judge by Wi-Fi you will be disappointed, as it is pretty nonexistant. However, we found this a gem of a little park. Great views too. Cannot wait to go back.

This is a beautiful small park at the top of Raton Pass. Very clean and well maintained. Decent TV via our antenna. Wifi very sketchy. I would have given a higher rating if the internet would have been better. Beautiful views. I would definitely stay here again.

Poor Wi Fi, stayed here before and would stay again. Site 17, is a little tight and close to ones on each side but ok. Great views, quiet, friendly staff. The cafe was not open when we were there. Went into town to eat did not think the town of Ration was that great. Old buildings, old neighborhoods. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Fifth Wheel.

What a bargain! Great views, open spacious sites, everything worked (except the wifi). After we got settled, the owner came out to see if everything was OK.

In spite of the closeness to the interstate, it was surprisingly quiet. I wish we could have stayed longer. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Travel Trailer.

Awesome views of the valley below. Friendly staff. Although close to the Interstate, little road noise. Not a place to stop and stock up as it is not close to town. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Level site with plenty of room to sit out. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Easy off and on the interstate, but no road noise. Lots of pull-throughs for overnighters. We had a back-in with beautiful views. We would stay here again. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Fifth Wheel.
