What is included? Do I need to bring anything?
All housing is supplied with sheets and blankets for bedding. Occupants must bring their own towels, soap and washcloth, as toiletries are not supplied.
What is the Pet policy?
The NRA Whittington Center will not allow pets in our Founder's Cabins, Competitor Housing and Log Cabins due to health, cleanliness and damage concerns. Pets are allowed in the R.V. and Primitive Campgrounds. If you plan on including your dog please download and sign our "Pet Policy" and "Guest Pet" agreements.
What is the smoking policy?
Pursuant to New Mexico State Statute, the "Dee Johnson Clean Indoor Air Act” states that smoking is not permitted in public places and places of employment. All guest rooms and buildings are 100% non-smoking at the Whittington Center. A $250 cleaning fee will be charged to any guest who violates the Smoking Policy.
Are there any restrictions?
All housing units, cabins and classrooms on the Whittington Center are designated non-smoking areas. BBQ grills are also prohibited inside any of these buildings as well as on the porches of the housing units. Please check with our Gate staff at the time of your stay for the most up-to-date information on any fire ban that might be currently in place.
Additional information about RV and tent camping?
All RV and Primitive campsites are assigned at the time your reservations are made and must not be changed without prior approval of the Front Gate. This is to avoid conflict with other reservations. Primitive campsites are limited to tents and small pop-up tent trailers only.
