Outdoor Activities in the Lincoln National Forest

"bamm festival" cloudcroft "new mexico"One thing we always tout as a reason to visit Cloudcroft is for all the wonderful outdoor activities available in the Lincoln National Forest and the surrounding areas. From camping and hiking to fishing and mountain biking, Cloudcroft has all sorts of fun things to do outside during the summer. Next weekend, the big thing to do outside is the BAMM Festival.

Held at the Cloudcroft ski resort, the BAMM Fest (or Badass Mountain Music Festival, if you prefer) combines a camping weekend with live music, as more than 25 are scheduled to play starting on Friday evening and going late into Saturday night. Ranging from the boot-stompin’ circus swing of Zoltan Orkestar to peppy ska of the Casual Fridays, there’s plenty of rock, folk, blues, hip hop, and country to go ‘round.

Should you want cushier lodgings, there are motel options in Cloudcroft, including our own Spruce Cabins. Wherever you stay, the BAMM Fest is a must-do in Cloudcroft, so come out June 14-16 and be ready to dance into the night!
