95' pull thrus! Love them. Very clean laundry area. $1.50 per wash and .50 for 20 min of drying. Gorgeous nature!
Definitely would stay here again. Didn't give a 10 because 1 tree near entrance needs trimming. - ontheroadmama

We were recently on a long trip to California, and needed a place to spend the night to finish the last leg home back to Colorado.
Reservation process was smooth by phone, and check-in process worked fine. We requested a long pull thru site so we didn't have to unhook, and we got a site that was exactly what we asked for. There was a little confusion when we drove to the site, as wasn't sure exactly which site was ours. But that could have been due to be tired after driving all day!
Nice pull thru site, gravel, plenty long enough. We only used the 50 amp service, didn't hook up water and sewer since it was such a short stay. All worked ok.
Took advantage of the pool, which was perfect on a hot day. The bathrooms were clean, but one set of bathrooms happened to be closed while we were there for maintenance.
Wi-fi was just OK, but that is the way it is at most places. Would definitely stay here again, as park was extremely well maintained, clean,and easy to get to from the interstate. - KTorline

Nice pool to cool off in. Monument Park just up the road. Stores close by. Even though "in town" still VERY quiet. Nice hosts. Big pull-through sites. - MarkR

While traveling west on a Thursday night we found ourselves in central Colorado as evening approached. Called ahead and were fortunate to get the last available site. The staff person who answered the phone was extremely helpful and had our paperwork waiting when we arrived after hours.
Park is all gravel with gravel site separated by a small rail fence. We had a full hook up drive through site. Our site did not have cable, but we got enough channel through the antenna to keep us entertained for the evening. All utilities seemed to work well for us. Park is kept clean and neat.
Sites are spaced a bit close together, but fine for our needs. Would happily stay again. - Kazoo Tom

Stayed here overnight with the TentsForTroops program. Hosts were very polite and professional. Wide enough pull-through site for me to park the truck next to the trailer after we disconnected. They do have laundry facilities on site but we did not use them. Off-leash pet area was small but well maintained. Close to I-70 but no road noise. No dining or shopping nearby. We WOULD stay here again. - The LBTs

Very friendly and helpful park staff. The place appears to have about half permanent residents. Very nice for a night stay along the road. - JimSC

This appears to be a re-branded KOA that was being well maintained. The sites are close together and the utility connections are just outside the distance from the slides. The park is convient to IH-70 but there was no noticeable highway noise. The wifi was free and one of the best we have found in a park. - workingdog

If you stay for a month, background check, not a problem. Space is really small, and gravel with stickers. If you wear flip flops they cling to them. Next thing you find them in your rig. The man that works in the office needs people skills. The manager is great ! Also, no place to park your car. - Chaka1

A very nice RV park close to I-70. It was easy to get in and out. We got a long pull through site (site 64) that was long enough for our 39 foot class A and a toad. The sites are level. We had issues with a few branches and they came right out and removed the branches. They have a nice pool. There are places to eat within walking distance. The wireless worked well. We will go there again. - Ludmilla

Nightly rate was for site without sewer and does not include the CO daily fee if you do not have an annual pass. All in at $31 night this is a steal for what you get. This is our 3rd time here. We love the CO State Parks! Easy freeway access, great interior roads, level long pull thru site, shaded picnic table, great hook-ups, clean facilities, what's not to like? As for outside noise - our A/c's were running so didn't hear a thing in the coach. Lots of space to walk the dog. - barbielab

This is a great park and if it had been further from I-70 it would rate an 10+ rating. Wonderful level concrete pads with clean gravel area and a permanent shade shelter over the picnic table. Only draw back was some freeway noise. We would stay again. - Bob and Pat

Our site was a reasonably long, level, paved pull-through with full hookup. There is no wifi, but AT&T coverage is good. Sites have a very nice covered patio with picnic table. They water the grass, and our toad and RV were thoroughly sprayed. Other sites were watered in mid-afternoon. There is a long walking trail along the Colorado river, and numerous grassy areas in which dogs can walk. The park is close to the Colorado National Monument. Campground hosts keep the place really clean, but apparently don't monitor the lawn sprinklers. Trains come through closely in the middle of the night. - Just Dave

Beautiful State Park. In fact I haven't yet found a Colorado State Park I didn't like. Beautiful nature trail all along the Colorado River. It can get 100 degrees in mid-July but the mesas on both sides help hide the sun earlier and later in the day. Tip: Start your AC early, set it lower to begin with and use your awning. Verizon doesn't work well, but AT&T is pretty good. The restrooms are not as nice as in others, but they are satisfactory. The camp hosts are very nice and friendly. I will certainly return again. Nice relaxing 5 day stay. - Casita Vagabond

Rate includes $10 transaction fee for online booking plus $7/night park fee paid upon arrival. They accept credit cards. If you plan to stay at other CO parks, you might consider buying an annual pass.
We had a pull-through site which was plenty long. Sites are well-spaced. Our site had a covered picnic table which was nice because it was quite sunny and warm mid-June.
There is a fishing pond and a (different) swimming pond. The Colorado River runs along the back of the property and there is a nice pathway for walking. The campground is "sandwiched" between two mountain walls and they are beautiful. We're told big horn sheep come down to the river but, sadly, we never saw any.
The good news is that the campground is super easy access off the 70 highway. The bad news is that the 70 highway is also sandwiched between the mountain walls so the noise is pretty constant. It didn't bother us but I could see that it might bother some especially if you're trying to sit outside and relax.
One negative is that a nearby neighbor was pretty boisterous one night until 1am. We were surprised park patrol and/or the camp host didn't shut them down. - GottaGoNow

The only draw back here was road noise! But, The scenery was incredible, and we got used to the noise. Great location for day trips around Grand Junction. Espesially up to Grand Mesa.
Sites were mostly pull through, gravel. great shelters with picnic tables at most sites. - Jeff Jangerous

This is a mobile home park with some RV spaces. Site was almost level, did use one block under wheels. Good for an overnight stay but nothing else. Would return for an overnight. - SD75mac

While the park is under new management (not ownership) which was friendly and helpful, it was more of a mobile home park, the pet rules were not enforced, and grass & trees were missing. But it was handy to shopping and sightseeing. - Lke

Very pleasant check in...lots of full timers there..close to road...heard trains..but i dont mind that.NO WIFI...cable didn't work either...we really just wanted to be here for a night to catch up on Internet and watch some tv...NEITHER could be done. I wouldn't stay again..for a couple dollars more there are other options...picnic table was a wreck..need to replace..site was level though. - Ollie49

Great park. Super nice staff. We were having MH mechanical issues, unsure if we needed site for another night. They put our site on hold and just said to tell them by 11A the next morning if we needed it. Spacious level gravel sites with pavers as a patio area and small grass area next to MH. Good heavy layer of gravel with minimal dust. Wide gravel roads for easy navigation. - a_d travelers_2

One of the best KOAs we've stayed at. Very friendly helpful staff. Gravel roads and level sites mostly with adequate gravel except at entry turn areas of heavy wear. Sites fairly close but with nice paved patio with a separate grass area curb side of the RV. Bathrooms large and very clean with hot water. Nice store and large laundry. A separate dump at the back corner was tight to close up to. Sites variable as to having 30 amp electricity only, while others have 30/50 amp, and whether all had site sewer I don't know. Four nice grassy tent sites. Small playground. - 210jem

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 park's name is accurate - RV CAMP. It's not a resort or even a park because it's pretty rustic. The spaces are nebulous (tough to know if you're really in one), but they give you enough freedom to get almost) level. The surface is occasional gravel with cement & rock fire pits. There were no vacationers while we were there, just workers in the local industries (although they were very friendly. We would stay here again if we wanted to visit the Grand Mesa for fall colors, but I do believe the price is too high for no cable (because you probably won't get broadcast channels). Looks like the park is for sale --I hope the new owners will put a little money into the place and make it a true destination because the Mesa is an awesome place (and there are no full hookups higher on the mountain). - User873

Very modern with large cement pads and driveways. Utilities are very solid with good water pressure, excellent electric and good, ground-level sewer access. Our only problem was that most occupants are full-timers and not too tidy. We stayed twice, for a total of 3 weeks and never sensed any odors. The location is quiet and conveniently located. We will stay here again. - Shadezguy

This is a good overnight stop with friendly part-time staff. There is no office and you must call when you get there to find out how to check in and site number. Lots of permanent residents. A new looking campground with concrete pads but no picnic tables or grills. The turns in the campground are very tight for a 43 foot Class A. - John & Bobbie

This is my 2nd time here in two years. It is still fairly clean and all concrete. Not much character. The rate has gone up significantly, since last visit. The internet connection is now throttled and limited to 40kB. Too slow for any downloads. The laundry dryers do not heat up well, requiring extended drying times. Based on the internet alone, we won't be back. - retiredfields
