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!

Our park is big rig friendly.  All sites are easy in and out.  Select a view back-in to take in our spectacular view.  

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.

Overall Rating: 4.5

Beautiful views! Clean restroom and bathhouse. Easy access and parking rig. Only problem is WiFi very little if any. No streaming if you can get it. But great place to just enjoy!

Jason Riede

Restrooms were closed the whole weekend. Had to find out on our own all the passcodes. Would recommend if no face to face contact they write info down on maps. We had a nice quiet two nights there.

Justin Skogen

Overall great place. Loved the views, the host ,Kenny , was great. would have had 5 stars but the bath house was out of service due to a lost key. We will definitely go back

Susan Eagle

Received a call midday to confirm my arrival in the evening. Was met warmly and offered me a back in site as I requested or had a better idea for a pull through so I didn’t have to unhook for my overnight stop- which was a great idea and still offered the amazing view. Quiet despite being beside I25, extremely clean grounds and hookups were all in good condition and clean. After 30 days on the road, I can say the nicest people and quietest, cleanest place I stayed.

Laura Stahl

We were just passing through for 1 night. Rhonda met us at the truck and was very gracious. we will definitely stay again.

John Smith

Wow. What an experience. NEVER saw anyone official. No receipt. Some guy walking around knocked on my door twice (one at 7:45AM, yes we were asleep, and the other in the evening to repeat information the "manager" had already communicated by text). Mice. Rude text to tell us to disconnect the water for cold or pay for the repair. Moved spot due to excessive wind and they never recognized us and thought we were a new arrival. Just not a good option. Much more respect and appreciation elsewhere.

Connie Diehl

Very easy process all the way around. Campground is clean and the view is beautiful.

Laurie Curtis

Great little campground with easy access to the freeway. Far enough away not to have traffic noise. Beautiful scenery. Rhonda was great, very friendly. We left a tool behind and she is sending it to us. We can't thank her enough!

Steven Taylor

Camp host met us at arrival and escorted us to our site. She was very welcoming and kind. Everything was shutdown due to Covid-19, so hard to fully evaluate. That’s why 4 stars as opposed to 5. Campground appeared to be clean and orderly but as mentioned restrooms and showers were closed as well as the Cafe.

debbie wolf

Had reservation for 2 days. Both sides of the freeway exits were closed due to construction. Not able to speak with anyone at park to instruct us a different alternative route other than the 3 GPS devices we had on. We unfortunately had to find another park to stay at. Park was kind enough to refund us.

Mark Craig

Quiet RV parking lot with all the utilities and a nice view. Could have done without the trump flag...

Steve & Donna Getman

Quiet snd very friendly.

Darwin Zrubek

Awesome views and awesome staff. I will definitely be back

Anthony Previte

Nice little spot for the night, had a pull through, so no need to unhook my toad. Nothing fancy, just well groomed gravel with picnic tables. Because of Covid the store, cafe and washrooms were closed but I sure was thankful to have a nice spot for the night. The views are fantastic and the critters friendly. There were a couple of deer wandering around the grounds and some cats having the time of their life catching field mice. I'd be back when in the area for sure...hopefully Covid FREE and able to sample the Cafe! Oh and being next to the freeway wasn't too bad since you're up above the roadway.

Steven Suchy

Great place to stay. This is our 2nd time to stay here and we stayed one night. We were met in the parking lot and lead to our site. The site was level and all connections worked well. Although close to the interstate, we noticed very little noise from the highway traffic. There was a little construction noise but that stopped early in the evening. We would stay here again.

Dean Price

Great communication on checkin. Worked well for our overnight.

Lynda Kersen

Stayed here several times. Nice stop over with a beautiful view!

Kimberly Simpson

Beautiful spots! When requesting back-in to overlook be sure to follow up call and see if possible.

Dwayne Byrom

We loved the location great sunset and easy parking. The people were very friendly and we will stay there again.

You can’t beat the views from this campground!! It is kind of tight getting in and out but worth it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They drive you to your space then help guide you into your spot. Very clean campground!!
