Nevada City Camping in April


Spring RVing

Spring camping has arrived, thankful for the sunshine (even if it’s interrupted by pockets of rain). We’re all looking forward to spending some time outside.  If you’re looking for a last minute spring break trip, come camping!   It’s been fun to see more tent campers and have folks roasting s’mores and enjoying the dry weather.  The daffodils are blooming at camp and the tulips are just starting to bloom.  We’re super excited to be in the running for the USA Today 10 Best RV Campground, so please cast a vote.


Some of the top questions we are getting at the moment….

Are you open?  Is there snow?  Is the pool open?  Yes we’re open, thankfully there was no snow (but can you still go spring skiing up the hill) and no, the pool isn’t open yet.  The pool is not heated, so it depends on the weather.  Normally we open it mid-May, but we’ll continue to monitor the weather and adjust as needs be.

Are you doing outdoor movies?  Yes, on weekends (weather permitting) and by request during the week.  We’re just waiting for that break in the weather, but it’s coming, so we’re excited.  And we take suggestions for must haves on our list of movies, we’ll check our movie license and add popular requests.

What is glamping?  Our glamping tents are canvas walled tents with a bed, linens, electricity, heated mattress pads, fan, deck and picnic table.  We’ve made it easy to just show up and camp, no setting the tent up!  But please note, our communal indoor kitchen is open, so you can bring your camp stove, cooler and a way to make coffee outside or use one of the coffeemakers in the kitchen, your choice.  The other question we get a lot in the shoulder season is are the glamping tents heated and the answer to that question is no.  But, our yurt is insulated and has a heater– and the feedback from guests this winter has been that it’s nice and toasty.  We always recommend a gas fire pit if you think you’re going to be a bit chilly and the heated mattress pads (in all of the glamping tents) are a great addition, but it’s helpful to remember that the glamping tents do not have heaters and we don’t allow space heaters.

Can we come check out the campground?  Yes, but please stop by the camp store upon arrival and say hello, during business hours only.

Should we do a shakedown for our new RV?  Of course!  The Inn Town Campground happily welcomes newbie campers and their rigs, it’s a great way to practice your camping skills, most likely closer to home and get ready for the camping season.

We’ve also had a number of guests with EVs, if you’re taking a camping trip with your electric vehicle, check out our resource page of places to charge, the Inn Town Campground does not have any charging options at camp.

We have opened our glamping tents for the 2024 season.  To see more photos check out either the Glamping Tent Gallery, I’m still trying to work my way through walk through Instagram Live tours (I promise my to do list is long, but I’ll get there!).  We’re excited to say that we have redone G2-G7, I’ve got an updated gallery of G7 on the website, but stay tuned for the others.  For those who want to look inside any of the tents, check out their online galleries for more photos.


We recently got a shout out in the Modern Campground and a nice plug in the Visit California Road Trip Road Trip Republic route planning.  We have been trying to keep our Instagram updates up to date, as we know folks have questions, so we’ll keep adding to those monthly check-ins, plus stay tuned for a (hint hint) giveaway!

The summer dates are filling up, so if you’re interested in coming camping this summer, it’s definitely time to make a reservation.   I’ve been updating our Things to Do Section if you’re looking for ideas on things to do or trying to keep track of annual events (Grass Valley Celtic Festival is back for 2024 with new spring dates).
