This campground is what it is. It is a place to spend the night for a really affordable rate. It has full hookups and we had a pull through. Water pressure is high - you will need a regulator. It is clay/red dirt but not too dusty. We were able to stay connected for a quick get away the next day. I am not sure what the rate was - it was in the $22-24 range - less a veteran's discount. But somehow $29 was charged to my card so that concerns me a little... but my fault for not paying attention. So here is the take away - pay attention to what you are paying for or being billed. I think that the guy checking us in screwed up and I didn't catch it. As far as WiFi, forget it. The guy at the front, the same one who screwed up my billing, tried to give me log in instructions which were clear as mud. The simple version of what he was trying to tell me appeared eventually as an available network but we could not log on. The bottom line is that this is a good place to spend the night with a Flying J in close proximity, but don't expect much, and double check the rates and what you are being billed. We filled up and went to the campground with a full tank so we got a good start the next morning. Easy to find and easy to get to. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

I didn't stay! Electrical hook ups outdated! Seen some were burnt! Grass doesn't get cut, was over 2' tall in most places. Hardly any staff on site to assist. Roads were easy to navigate. Entrance had 2 huge potholes that would almost tip your RV over. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

A no-frills campground that is very good for an overnight stop. Exit I-40 at exit 335, and go west on old 66 about 3/4 mile. Park is on your left (south side). Easy access for all sizes. Sites are gravel and/or grass, fairly level. Good Wi-Fi. If you traveling with horses, they have several corrals or pens available. Owner was friendly and helpful. We did not use the showers or restrooms. Would stay here again for an overnight stop. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very unusual park but great for an overnight stop if you are near Tucumcari. Opt for a spot at the back corner of the park. Facing the open field gave a nice view of the mountain. There were a number of run down campers that appeared to have someone living in the park, but no one was around that caused any concerns. Fine for the price charged. The staff was helpful in setting up our stay. Horses were allowed, and a pen with an outbuilding was at one end of the park. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet park with easy on/off of the interstate. There are not a lot of bells and whistles, but the people were friendly and helpful. Fine for an overnight stay. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Easy access to I-40. Very basic with gravel sites and no shower or restrooms. Minimal upkeep, but for $15 for full hookups it works for a day or two stay over. If you need the amenities and aesthetics, better look elsewhere. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rustic, flat, open, very friendly. We enjoyed the welcome by the owner and his daughter. She visited our site after we had set up, just to make sure everything was OK. We enjoyed the peace and quite so much, we stayed a second night. Nothing fancy but very relaxing. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Motorhome.

A very nice and roomy campground. A very easy to use self-serve booth for late arrival. Staff was helpful, friendly and seemed to be doing a lot of upgrades to the place. Located one mile from I-40 for easy off and on but far enough to avoid the noise. Great view of the Tucumcari Mountain. Recommended to all.

Very nice little park, but there was only one tree large enough to provide shade. We took that spot, but it was still very hot. This wouldn't be a place you'd want to stay more than one night, but it was nice and cost-effective for a single-night stopover. No showers or restrooms available that we saw, but we use the ones on our rig anyway. Owner was very nice and hospitable, although she wasn't there when we arrived. Easy to check in, find a spot and hook up. Easy access to some cute Route 66 diners. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nothing fancy, clean, level sites. All sites are pull-thrus. Good cell phone reception and computer airphone reception (Verizon). Great water pressure, best we've had a park in quite a while. Friendly owner, she greeted us after we got settled in. Far enough off of the 1-40 so it's great for a good nights sleep. Park is located on Route 66 but was quiet at night. Great place for an overnighter. Would stay here again. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Looks like this park is being renovated. Lots of minor construction and new parts mixed with older ones. Campground was VERY clean and tidy, personnel were extremely accommodating. Also has horse pens for traveling equestrians, very clean and in excellent repair. This will be nice park when the trees get a little bigger to provide some shade. Roads and sites were all a well packed gravel and sites were pretty level. We will stay here again. We camped at Blaze-in-Saddle RV Park (formerly Empty Saddle RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.
