Saddlehorn is beautiful campground in Colorado NM. It provides spectacular views of the Colorado river valley below. The sites are generally smaller and not all that level. Our 30ft total length TT was one of the larger units in the campground. The campground is on a slope so even some of the higher sites still have good views even if you are not on the outside loop close to the drop off. Check the tunnel heights to make sure you fit through prior to your climb up to the campground (11'5" on the edge and 16'1" at center of the road). Standard NP type facilities with updated bathrooms that have running water. The campground does not have a dump station or water fill up. The visitor center at Fruita had a free and well kept dump and water fill up station. - rockwood tt family

Very nice campground. Tent loop has larger sites and more privacy than RV loop. This campground rarely fills up, but RVs should have a reservation for weekends--its a long way down if you can't find a site. I was in my trusty tent and had no trouble finding a site on a Saturday evening. Beautiful setting. Nice hosts were highly visible. I would certainly camp there again if I was in my tent. Probably wouldn't take my trailer there. - NT2013

A great value with spectacular views and a friendly camp host. No reservations and it can get hot in summer, but weather was perfect in late September. Rate reflects senior discount. - Tomk2

This state park is truly a gem, with large, well spaced sites, picnic shelters, and a few small shade trees. It is right on the Colorado River, thus activities abound. We were walk-ins on a Saturday with no reservation, and were assigned a handicap site, which was admittedly above average. The ranger's evening presentation (on coyotes) was excellent. On the down side, there is no free WiFi, and once the sun sets, mosquitoes will eat you alive. We will definitely stay here again. - CO2RV

We arrived without reservations, but ended up with one of the nicest sites in the park. Electric-only, not FHU, but well-landscaped and maintained, concrete-slab site with nice shade. There were no other sites behind ours, so it was fairly private as well. We will be back! - fanrgs

Easy access on/off I-70. Very nice state park, with token state entrance fee. Paved roadways and several elbow-access concrete pad sites throughout. Real good privacy. Metal grate picnic tables with timber/tin canopies. Mature vegetation, shrubs, with limited big trees. No wifi internet (drawback). Very clean washrooms; showers were coin operated. Outstanding mountain views. Great for an overnight stay or destination place. - WinnMac

For a shorter stay to visit the area, this park is fine and I would not hesitate to return. It is very clean and the staff is quite friendly. There are fairly short back in sites around the perimeter and in the middle, two rows of pull throughs, one row having longer (and more expensive) sites. The shorter pull throughs are alternating directions so you are facing your neighbors door yard. Because the sites have no real defining boundaries, several campers seemed to take liberties with their tow or toad parking.
The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. There are two laundry rooms and the one next to the office is much cleaner and larger than the other.
The park has a front and rear section and because we were staying a month plus, we were in the rear section. This placed us closer to the very long term residents. After the first very early wake up call of trucks firing up to head off to work, we never heard them again. The bigger challenge was the children who had no place to play but the roads in the park. Footballs do make a noise as they hit your rig and we were not thrilled with the skate boards or bicycles either. This may not bother you but it did us. Requesting the front section of the park will all but eliminate this issue.
Our Verizon phone and mi-fi worked well here.
Again, for a shorter stay in the front section, we would be happy to return. - PBuds

It's just ok, overpriced for what they offer.
We were fooled by their website, the nice view picture hasn't been taken from the campground. Not quality type of people.
We were passing by so just stayed one night.
Definitely won't come here again.
We value kindness care and integrity more than anything and they were lacking all of these qualities :(
Wi-Fi: don't even bother.
They are absolutely not pet friendly even though they accept pets.
Find a different campground, especially if you plan on staying for some time.
It is NOT a resort. - MikeMayNaama

Decent campground, nothing really noteworthy. Gravel all throughout, level sites. WiFi decent, laundry good. Small store, small office. Small pool. Easy access off I-70 - rwarner22
