A mile from town, Erin and Dan Thiem, who run Nevada City’s perky outdoor-themed Outside Inn, have opened the new Inn Town Campground, where you can rinse off in an outdoor shower at shared bath facilities, and then circle under the pine trees at an outdoor gas fireplace. Tuck under the quilts in a Boy Scout-style tent appointed with cowboy-style furniture and a balcony.

Brought to you by the same people as Outside Inn, a motor lodge in Nevada City, the new Inn Town Campgroundmashes up all styles of outdoor overnights: tents, RV hookups, plus the glamp. The latter has beds with custom headboards, electrical outlets, and quirky upcycled art, like old teapots transformed into lamps.
