Cimarron (pop 1,000) is located along the historic Santa Fe, and sits on the quiet banks of the Cimmaron River amidst the thick timbered forests of the southern Rocky Mountains. Cimmaron offers a variety of recreational opportunities to its visitors, though it is best known for its proximity to Philmont Scout Ranch, the largest Boy Scouts of America camp in the nation.
Visitors to Cimmaron will find a handful of affordable accommodation options in town and several more extravagant offerings in Old West style hotels. Dining in Cimmaron is fairly limited, though hungry visitors will find that the establishments here have stood the test of time and provide a wide variety of cuisine at affordable prices. For a more upscale eating experience with a legitimate old-west feel try the St. James Hotel.
