Cloudcroft is a town in Southeast New Mexico, high in the Sacramento Mountains.

Get in

Cloudcroft is located at the junction of Highways US 82 and NM 244. The nearest airport with commercial air service is in El Paso, Texas, about 96 miles away. Commute to Cloudcroft from nearby Alamogordo entails going through New Mexico's only Tunnel and driving through High Rolls/Mountain Park.

Get around

Cloudcroft has no public transportation, excepting horse and horse-drawn carriage rentals (seriously!). The town itself is tiny and easy to navigate on foot. For outlying areas, plan to drive and know that 4-wheel drive is helpful in the winter.



Golf at the Lodge or Ponderosa Pines. Hiking and camping galore. Cross Country skiing, inner-tube rides and snow-mobiles!


Burro Avenue has several lovely shops featuring friendly service.

  • Instant Karma. 302 Burro Ave, 505-682-2651. Wonderful yoga-studio and shopping experience for clothing, accessories and books.


  • Rebecca's at The Lodge. One Corona Place, 866-595-6343. Exquisite dining featuring wonderful chef's, live pianists, old-fashion feel, beautiful views and rich, mysterious history.
  • Big Daddy's Diner. 1750 James Canyon. A local favorite with a laid back atmosphere.


  • The Western Bar and Restaurant. 300 Burro Ave. 505-682-2445. Friendly staff, friendly locals and the local watering hole.
