The Raton Pass Camp and Cafe is a campground located north of Raton just off I-25 at the top of Raton Pass, New Mexico. Soak in the panoramic views of the Savage Canyon, home to gambel oak, pinion and ponderosa pine, and while you're sitting outside keep your eyes open for the wildlife that calls Raton Pass home. There are bears, mule deer, elk, wild turkeys and scores of beautiful hummingbirds. Our sites are packed level gravel with scenic large back-ins, pull thrus, extra long pull thrus, and budget friendly small back-ins that support 30/50 amp sites. Our clean manicured property will keep you coming back year after year. For the 2020 season our showers and toilets are closed but the laundry is available.

Given our convenient location, visitors can take advantage of nearby attractions such as:

  • Capulin Volcano National Monument
  • Trinidad Lake State Park
  • Sugarite State Park
  • Fisher's Peak State Park

Whether its for a short and or long term stay, we hope to see you soon!

Open Dates: March 1 to October 30

We are located in the middle of Colorado and New Mexico's newest recreation expansion.  There are so many hidden gems its easy to spend a week and not even finish all the regional activities and sites. Be sure to visit the Sugarite State Park, Trinidad Lake State Park, the city of Raton with tons of site-seeing and shopping, Capulin Volcano National Monument, the historic city of Cimarron and a plethora of other great attractions!  Don't miss all the museums and shopping in Trinidad, CO as we are situated just 10 miles from both Raton and Trinidad. Our location abuts Colorado's newest State Park, Fisher's Peak State Park.  Follow us on Social Media to find about the 2021 opening of the Park.

Raton Pass Camp &Cafe

Very nice campground hosts. Views were beautiful. Road noise was minimal. Bathhouse was clean, but there was no hot water for showers or in the sink, and I would suspect for the washing machine either. A nice half way stopping point for our trip between Denver and Santa Fe. The restaurant was also closed and may not reopen.


Despite being located adjacent to the highway, its surprisingly quiet. Quaint park. Great place for dogs to play off leash but NOT the best assigned “dog park” at all! Sadly the cafe portion is closed. And there’s nothing nearby, so come prepared to be self sufficient.

Duane Popp

1st time here. Beautiful views! Owner/host was kind and very helpful and put us in the best site available. She even guided us to it. Our 41’ 5th wheel was on a pull through site that we could see the gorgeous scenery from our windows. If RV sites full, that would block our view tho, but could see it all from the RV park. If you have a shorter rig, many site options with beautiful back of camper views. Nice restroom/showers/laundry facilities that were super clean. Right off the interstate. Cafe was not open so I can’t review that. Local town is 10-15 minutes away. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Steven Holland

Always stop on our way to Montana and back. First coolness getting out of Texas.

Linda Hall

Ben and Sherri were very helpful. Loved the scenic views and the quiet!

Jeff Hartzler

The owners were very helpful. Unusual layout, all sites were level despite the campground built on the side of s mountain. Full hookup, roads and sites were all gravel and well maintained.

Lorraine van den Arend

Small, 23 site campground. Easy pull through, large site. Full hookups, laundry, clean bathrooms. Elevation 7800 ft. Beautiful view, but in April we experienced 30+ mph winds with higher gusts.

Staci Kovacevich

Our experience was excellent. The owner was in constant communication with us via text to make sure we had all the information we needed. The restrooms and showers were clean, the scenery was beautiful, and even with its close proximity to the highway, it was nice and quiet. If we ever pass this way again this is where we will stay!

Glenn Guffey

Great place quiet and relaxing even seen deer on the property. Plan to stay again in the future.

Good location with the view! Once upper level finishes, it will be great! Friendly staff and free Wifi.

This place is a joke! I showed up at 4:30pm, check in was between 12-8p. The building was boarded up and not a sole in sight. We walked around the building and saw several vehicles in back. Looking through windows and the inside looked abandoned. The road to the sites was gated and locked and there were no other campers. I tried multiple times to contact the number listed but never spoke to anyone. Eventually after we starting taking pictures of the place a woman comes out. She was very disoriented. She said we could use 1 or 2 sites next to the building. Neither of which had a view, nor was pull thru as the site indicated and what I had paid for. At this point I just didn't feel safe in this place, it seemed to me they are running this operation as a front. I have inquired about a refund but am not able to get in touch with anyone, the number listed says the voicemail box is full. There is not email or anyone to reach out to either. Extremely disappointed and I want my money back since I didn't stay here. Do not even consider this place. Its like a RV park horror movie.

We booked online, they took our money, we get there and the place is closed for the season. Been two days and they still haven’t returned my call. Who leaves the reservation system working when the campground is shut down??? Luckily the place we were headed to next was able to accommodate us early. Turned a 4 hour drive into an 8 hour drive. Fun with two small kids. Don’t waste your time with this place.

David Osmun

Friendly staff, clean facilities, and a beautiful view.


Great location with amazing sunsets and very nice hosts!


Owners communicated well with instructions about our site and the campground and the view is great! The perfect spot to be away from the city but close enough to all the beautiful things Raton has to offer.

Kristine Wood

Great stopping point on our way from Texas to Colorado!

Rick Walthall

Had a great view from our site. Owner was very helpful and cooperative and allowed us to park in an easier site with our long 5th wheel. We would stay here again.

George Hicks

Amazing views with helpful management made this a top stop on my recent vacation. The manager helped me with my problems and guiided me into my spot and was very understanding. The location is incredible and we had a great stay. We loved the views and saw wildlife.

Scott Taylor
