Spring Camping Resolutions
What are your spring camping resolutions? The flowers are out and Mother Nature keeps tempting us with the promise of warmer days. In the mean time, there are a lot of great reasons to think about going camping!

In case you missed our March post, we re-opened the Glamping tents for the 2017 season! We’ve been having a lot of fun sharing photos of the tents and their new floors. To see the updates, check out the Inn Town Campground Glamping Tent Gallery for more photos.
We know you’re all interested in knowing when the pool will be finished. We’re happy to say that the weather has improved and construction progress is moving along. The equipment is in and the pool now has a fence! There are only a few final inspections and steps to go before we fill it with water and let the sun start warming it up. We hope to have the pool up and ready by Memorial Day weekend.
Finally, many thanks again to Sunset Magazine for including the Inn Town Campground in their May camping issue, we made the list of 31 Camps to visit in the US! And check out the online article about the top 55 Campgrounds in California, Hawaii and Mexico.
Dear Erin, thanks for your wonderful newsletter and blog about camping and Glamping! This is your mother’s old friend Katie from Half Moon Bay (her landscaper & friend back in the early 1980’s. What kind of tents are you using? I’m sure you have researched this extensively.
We would love to stay at your place if we ever make it back to California. We’ve been in North Carolina all these years, and I’ve been living in France and Guatemala for a good part of that time too. Your camping experience looks TERRIFIC!
