Stayed specifically on Saddle Campground -- Lot 12.

Website of the campground were tricky, but getting there wasn't too bad.

From beginning to end the experience was terrific. Signs leading up to our campground from Cloudcroft was clear and easy to see.

We came from El Paso, TX and as beginning/intermediate campers we really enjoyed our experience and will be going again.

Observation: Lots of RVs not too many Car Campers (minus us) and there was very easy access to walking trails, restrooms (moderately clean) and the camp host was extremely nice, helpful and full of local guidance.
