Yeah November! It’s been a great autumn here at Inn Town Campground. Although we really want the rain, our weather is still warm and sunny, perfect for camping. We’ve had a lot of happy campers, numerous repeat customers and plenty of roasted marshmallows over the gas fire pits.
Now, we’re looking forward to a final burst of fall colors (the campground’s dogwoods pop a bright yellow in early November) and the onset of the holiday season. So as we (hopefully) transition to cooler temps and longer nights, it doesn’t mean the camping season is over at the Inn Town Campground. We are open year-round and The Commons is a warm, cozy place to share a meal, watch a movie or just relax while you’re visiting the campground and Nevada City. Our RV and tent campsites will be available throughout the winter, but our glamping tents will close at the end of November. If you want a last minute chance to glamp this year, remember each bed has an added heated mattress pads to keep you warm at night. However, please remember that the tents are not heated. You can always come warm up by the fire place in The Commons living room or rent a gas fire pit for your individual campsite.
For those of you who don’t own a RV, but want to give it a try here are a few suggestions. You can check out our Retro RV, which is already set up at the campground and ready for you to camp. Or, if you’re interested in renting an RV and going on a road trip, try one of these outfitters: American Tear Drop, Sierra Tear Drops, Discover RV, Gold Country Camper Rentals, TravelLite RV Rentals, Outdoorsy, Rockin RV Rentals or Cruise America.
The holidays are a great time to come camping with us. We’re open through both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so if you have too many family members and need a few extra options, we’re happy to play host. Please note that our camp store is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.

This week Dan and I are at the ARVC National Conference for RV Park and Campground owners. We like to come to this event every year to hear what other campgrounds in the country are doing and what’s up-and-coming in the industry. Feel free to post a comment and let us know if there’s something you’ve noticed in the camping industry that we should know about.
We wanted to let you guys know that our rates for next season will be increasing beginning December 1. So if you’re planning a trip for next season, book now to lock in the current 2018 rates for your next trip. Our booking and cancellation policies will remain the same.
Finally, if you’re looking for a holiday gift idea, we offer Gift Certificates online and over the phone. To help kick off the holiday season, we invite you to our open house, Saturday, November 24th from 2-4pm. We’ll have some camping themed holiday gifts in the camp store and a special raffle door prize for those who stop by.

As always, we love hearing from our campers and look forward to seeing you round the campfire.
