Updates from around the Inn Town Campground… if you missed our first two campground tours, there’s one on the schedule for Tuesday, May 17th, 12-1. Meet Jed at the entrance by the Railroad Museum parking lot for a walk around the campground. Because of the construction activi
ty, we are asking folks to please join the organized tour if they are interested in learning more about the project or seeing the progress. We promise we’re going to have an open house before we open, so watch this space for an announcement. In the mean time, if you missed the videos we’ve shared on our Facebook page, click here to see more.
The Campground is a hub of activity! In the last month we’ve poured sidewalks, set up the glamping tents, installed water and power, conducted job interviews (we’re still looking for additional housekeepers to join the staff), fielded press requests, continued construction on tent sites, ordered custom signs, installed light fixtures, continued the process for a beer & wine license for the camp store and made at least 547 decisions.
Our number one question of the moment is, “when are you going to open?”. We will be open for business officially on July 1st. You can book online here for that date and beyond. We’re still aiming for a soft opening at the end of June, but haven’t committed to a date due to the many moving pieces. We also plan to host an open house in June, we promise to share that information as soon as we set the date.
Finally, fire pits: we’ve had a number of questions about fires. The Inn Town Campground is located in one of the most severe fire hazard areas in the country. Due to our very close proximity to downtown Nevada City, and the dangers fire poses to our community, the Inn Town Campground will not have individual wood burning fire pits at each site. However, since we believe in s’mores as much as everyone else, you can rent a gas fire pit with propane from the camp store (or bring your own). These are a great alternative to wood, with all of the ambiance, but none of the smoke and far less fire danger. Our communal gathering area will still have a large wood burning fire, so feel free to gather there and bring your s’more stuff if you want the smoked flavor and nostalgia of crackling wood. BBQs will be available by the main building and communal gathering area. Also, due to the high fire danger in our community all of our campsites will be non smoking.
