Hello October! Who’s ready for Halloween? If you’ve ever been to the Outside Inn or Nevada City towards the end of October, you know that we take Halloween very seriously here. While we’ve certainly celebrated the holiday the last two years here at the campground, this year we’re upping our game. As much as Halloween night is great, we wanted to increase the opportunity for our campers to get into the spirit before the night. So this year, the Inn Town Campground is going to have a haunted pathway setup for the month of October for campers to enjoy a self guided walk.
Fall is also the time of the year when everywhere I look, I’m pleasantly surprised by the pops of color. If you’ve never visited Nevada City at this time of the year, it’s a great time to take a fall colors walk around town, check out an event or go for a hike along the South Yuba River.
With the change in season, we’ve had many people ask when we’re closing for the year. We’re happy to remind you that our campground is open year round. If you have an RV or a tent, you can come camping in all seasons – fall, winter, spring or summer. Although our glamping tents are closed for the winter (December-January-February), there’s still plenty of time to come treat yourself to a night away before the rains set in. So, whether it’s a girls getaway, staycation or family outing, there is still plenty of camping left this fall. Keep reading for our fall week-day glamping special.
We fully encourage you to bring your fall and Halloween spirit to the campground. We’d love to see how you decorate for the holidays. For those of your worried about the cooler evenings, just remember that our communal building is a great place to come sit by the fire, cook a meal or play cards with a friend. It’s fully heated and stocked for a relaxing campout…made easy. If that’s not enough, here are some other great reasons to come camping in Nevada City this October & November.
