Can I reserve The Commons for my family’s gathering?

The living room, kitchen and dining area in our main building are for all of our guests, so unfortunately we do not reserve them for any private functions.  We also remind campers that the campground facilities are for registered campers only, so please do not organize a family reunion gathering at the Inn Town Campground that includes outside guests.

It opened Memorial Day weekend 2017, it is a seasonal, non-heated pool and will be open spring-fall.

Can I stay at the pool after check-out?

Will all the sites have a picnic table?


Can I cook in my glamping tent?

No, all camp stoves will have to be outside.

Can I fit a cot in the glamping tent with 4 twins?  Or how many cots can I fit into the queen bed glamping tents?

There isn’t enough floor space in Glamping Tent #2 and #11 (with the four twin beds) for an additional cot.  The glamping tents measure in size 12 x 14 feet, there is space in the tents for one or two cots, but it really depends on how cozy you want to be.  Please note that the max occupancy in all of our tents is no more then 3 adults and/or 4 guests (if kids included), we recommend 3 in the tents with a queen.  If you need a cot, please request one prior to arrival, otherwise you can get one from the office during office hours.

Not at this time.  We recommend that you book multiple tent sites next to each other if you’re coming with multiple parties, but please note that we do have quiet hours at the Inn Town Campground, so for larger groups, please be aware that if your party can be heard from another camp site it is too loud.

Unfortunately no, cable is not available in our neighborhood.

Guests FAQ

We wanted to have some guests come by and visit us. Do they need to do anything?

We require guests be pre registered by the camping party prior to guest arrival. There is a $5 guest fee, per guest. Little ones 3 and under are free. The guest/s will need to check in at the front office when they arrive to sign a registration card, and check out when leaving.

Guests are allowed between the hours of 10AM and 8PM.

My sister is coming by to say “hi,” she is just going to be here for 5 minutes.

We still require any guest to pay the guest fee.

Our friends want to meet us here, and then we are going to go out to dinner, is that ok?

If they are just picking you up and dropping you off they don’t need to be registered as guests.

We try to limit vehicle traffic beyond the upper parking area. So we ask that you meet them here in the parking area and have them drop you off here as well. If they wish to stay and visit a while before or after your dinner plans, they will need to be pre registered with the office and check in upon arrival.

What if we just want to come by and check out the campground?

Visitors who are not visiting campers, and who want to check out the campground are more than welcome to come by the campground during office hours to get information about our facilities.

We were planning on doing a dinner here, with our guests, can they stay until after dinner is over.

Our guest policies allow them to be on site between the hours of 10am and 8pm. We do require all guests to leave the campground by 8pm.

There is more parking at our site; can our guests park at the site? 

We try to limit vehicle traffic throughout the campground, to keep dust down as well as creating a quieter environment for campers. So we ask that you park in our main parking area unless otherwise directed by staff.

My friend has a baby, do you charge for the baby too?

No, we do not. There is no fee for any little one age 3 and under.

Can our friends drop off things to our campsite then park in the parking area?

Yes. They still need to sign in at the office upon arrival before continuing to your campsite. Once they have finished unloading we do require all vehicles of guests be parked in the parking lot.

Can our friend’s kids come watch the movie tonight with our kids?

Unfortunately the movies run beyond our guest hours. If your friends want to book a site they can stay for the movie, hang out, and you can do breakfast in the morning!

We have friends picking us up. Can they drive to our site to get us?

Yes they can, we just need them to check in at the front office so that we can help guide them to your site, as well as sign in due to insurance purposes.

Is there a maximum amount of guests that I can have come and visit?

The number of people including registered campers and day guests may not exceed the maximum occupancy rate of the site. 

We are going to be celebrating a birthday and want to invite our local friends and family here for a quick party. If they are only here for a few hours in the middle of the day can we have more people than the occupancy limit?

Unfortunately no. The occupancy rate per site is based on the overall permitted occupancy rate of the campground. We have information available about our local public parks and state parks around Nevada City. Many of them have day use picnic areas that might be a nice place for your party.
