Raton Pass Camp and Cafe. Right at the top of the pass.

Check the NM rules for out of state visitors...I think if you stay in NM for 1 night you must be quarantined there for 14 days.

Negative, Haste Maker. NM requires self isolation for 14 days or the actual length of time spent in the state, whichever is shorter.

Correct. That does mean, however, to stay within the law they must not leave their RV site to sight see, go out to dinner, or engage in any other activity. If they stay at the park suggested, even going to the cafe attached to the RV park for coffee would be a violation of the quarantine order.
On the plus side, having crossed that pass a few times, I don't believe they will miss very much. It didn't appear to be a destination of any kind.

There is Raton, the town. And there is Raton Pass about 6-8 miles away, which is only the top of the pass, and nothing there but the RV park. It is a nice RV park, or at least was when we were there a number of years ago. In Raton itself, the KOA was the nicest in town park at the time.

We stayed at the Raton Pass RV in June before the new rules. Even then they would only allow one person in the office at a time. I was not impressed with the park either, we got stuck behind the office. The whole place is a gravel parking lot. I imagine Capulin Volcano will be closed and Folsom site seemed to be closed when we were there. There is extensive construction going on at the interstate right outside the park that made navigating in/out a problem too.

The town was mostly closed too even then so I would cross this area, and state off my list until sanity returns, that county has had NINE total cases so far.

Drive over the border to CO is my advice.

X2^^. You just have to self-isolate for the time you are there.

Lots of misinformation here. We stayed in Raton Pass Campground and Cafe on July 6, 2020. We were met by campground hosts and taken to our campsite. Otherwise there was no difference than it has been in previous years. We have stayed there many times over the years. This was only an overnight for us and we moved on up to Colorado Springs as we had planned.

Go to New Mexico and act as you always have, just wear a mask. I called the New Mexico Highway Patrol Admin Asst and got all kinds of ifs ands and buts. Nothing conclusive. Then called the campground in Bernalillo and they said "come on" no problem.
Apparently the NM governor is drunk with power and the LEO are ignoring her.
But, that could change tomorrow.
