WHAT WE'RE DOING AT 4K RED RIVER AND 4K RIVER RANCH:
In accordance with COVID-Safe Practices for lodging, we will continue to follow the state's occupancy guidelines and make sure that all of our guests are kept safe.
Masks will be required when entering the office to check-in; please only send one person from your party to complete the check-in process.
We are encouraging our guests to call ahead and pay the remainder of their balance if not already done to make the check-in process quick and easy. For check-ins arriving after our normal office hours, please call ahead to take care of any remaining balance and the keys, map, etc. will be left in our late arrivals folder outside of the office with your welcome packet.
As far as cancellations, if you are from the state of New Mexico, we will follow our current cancellation policy, as you are not effected by the governor's orders.
If you are an out-of-state guest and have questions about your current reservation, or you would like to make a reservation, please call the office at (575) 754-2293. Please review our 4K Red River Policies.
4K Red River and 4K River Ranch is taking extra cleaning precautions, as well as cleaning all of our facilities and touch surfaces multiple times a day. To ensure that each room and facility is clean and ready for our guests, we will not be allowing early check-ins for our structures. This includes our nightly rentals in town, apartments and cabins. For RV sites, we will accept early check-ins, as long as the site is clean and it is approved by the reservation team.
Our shower/bath facilities and laundromat remain open until the end of our summer season and will be cleaned frequently.
If you or anyone in your group has recently been exposed to the virus or have any illness or symptoms, please do not visit 4K River Ranch or Red River until you have fully recovered. We ask that all of our guests maintain proper social distancing while on the grounds of our property and adhere to New Mexico state requirements listed and linked above.
If you are going into town or any other place in Red River, please wear a mask and wash your hands as often as possible. The town of Red River will also be providing extra sanitizing stations for your use.
These guidelines and practices have been agreed upon by all of the businesses in Red River in order to keep our community and guests safe while they are here. Please help us maintain these standards for the good of our lovely little community. We want to keep everyone safe so that we can continue to welcome guests to Red River, but we cannot do that if the guidelines are not being followed.
We look forward to welcoming our guests to 4K River Ranch and enjoying the rest of 2020! Don't forget that we are open year-round!
