Happy Birthday to Inn Town Campground! July 1st was our first birthday; and wow it’s been an amazing first year in business. We still look around the campground in awe of all the things that have been done since we began this project. However, we both agree the best part about owning and running a campground is chatting with happy campers. So, many thanks to all the folks who have supported us in this amazing journey. For those who want to go back and read the round up from opening weekend last year, click here.
We appreciate the community support, our families, the talented and patient staff at the Inn Town Campground (thanks Jed, Jenny, Jordan, Skye, Ryan, Paige, Scott and Ken).
In terms of upcoming events, we’re still showing movies on our outdoor movie screen on Fridays & Saturdays, plus craft time on Saturday afternoons. The next Folk Trails Hiking Club hike is this Thursday at 4pm. We’re continuing the Bear Yuba Land Trust Fireside chat, come listen to naturalist Steve Roddy tell stories, Wednesday, July 12th.
