Cloudcroft is a village in Otero County, New Mexico, and is within the Lincoln National Forest. The population was 749 at the 2000 census. Despite being located in an otherwise arid region, its extremely high elevation (; one of the highest in the U.S.) allows for a relatively mild summer that makes it a popular tourist attraction in West Texas and New Mexico. It was named by Fodors in 2002 as the Number 3 "Most Overlooked and Underrated Destination Spot." Tourism remains the primary economic driver of the village.

Several small communities near Cloudcroft: Weed, Lost Lodge, Sunspot, Mayhill, Piñon, and Timberon.
