There are not many campgrounds open in the winter / off-season. That’s why the Inn Town Campground is open for RV and tent camping year-round. Our canvas walled Glamping tents will re-open beginning in March, although if you want to try the yurt, because it’s insulated and we’ve got a little heater, it’s a good option for winter glamping. If you missed our Instagram Reel with details on how to learn more about yurt life if you’re thinking of buying one, check it out for your opportunity to get a free night. With the Commons and its relaxing, warm hang-out areas, plus fully stocked kitchen, camping in the winter at the Inn Town Campground is easy! So, for those of you who’ve got cabin fever and want to bring out your RV, tent or even just your bag of clothes, we welcome you. We’re only 45 minutes from Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge, if you want to do some skiing or snowboarding. Or, if skiing doesn’t sound fun in the warm weather, Nevada City is home to a great network of hiking and biking trails.
Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day? We love the idea of a romantic camping trip, but really you can celebrate your loved one any day of the year… But if you are looking for some creative ways to celebrate, check out the InnSide Nevada City blog for some great local suggestions on things to do and ways to share the love.
Nevada City doesn’t let winter get in the way of a good small town parade! Nevada City puts on several parades through the year, including the annual Chinese Lunar New Year Parade and the Mardi Gras parade. This year the Mardi Gras event will take place on Saturday, February 10th, noon-4pm with the parade starting at 2pm in downtown Nevada City. Chinese New Year festivals are unique in rural communities, and Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra, along with the Miners Foundry, are proud to present this family-friendly celebration, honoring the early Chinese Gold Rush pioneers and railroad workers of the Sierra. The celebrations to ring in the Year of the Dragon will take place in downtown Nevada City this Sunday, February 25th starting at noon. And don’t forget the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, President’s Weekend in both Nevada City & Grass Valley.
We’re currently working on some projects around camp, looking forward to showcasing the upgrades on glamping tents 2-7. We also made some changes on our dog policies, for those of you planning a future glamping trip, dogs are welcome in all glamping tents, with the exception of the family yurt, for an additional $20/per dog, per night. If you can’t figure out what site is best for you we recommend either the online photo galleries, the site map, the 360 tour or if you want to stop by in person, the camp store is open 11am-4pm in the winter months.
If you’re looking for some fun local events, we’ve got a photo walk on February 24th, 10am. Come join us, rain or shine, bring your camera or your phone and meet some other photo happy folks in the community.
Otherwise, it’s been exciting the last few weeks as we help people plan their upcoming spring and summer camping trips. We’ve talked to people coming for birthday parties, family reunions, local events and weddings, it’s great that folks are getting into the camping spirit. If it’s raining and you’re looking forward to something to do, whether it’s this month of next fall, now is a great time to book.
And if you made it this far we’re excited to announce that we’re having a Feb camping special to honor of winter fun. Make any new reservation to stay at the campground in February and receive 15% off, offer for new bookings only, excludes President’s Day weekend.
