Camping with the Chubby Tire Group puts you right in the middle of the action of the events! If you choose to to camp here, we ask that..

  1. Be respectful of the events, volunteers and participants. 
  2. Bring well-behaved dogs, but keep them on a leash
  3. Bring cash to donate, if you are able to. 
  4. Respect the quiet hours of 10pm - 6am
  5. Keep your vehicle out of the driveway, and do not park in the turn-around.

If this isn't your style, don't worry!  Cloudcroft has tons of near by camping site and lodging options.  Please read the below for other options....
