Today’s “RVing Today” quick stop is ideally located for RVers visiting historic Nevada City, California. Lots of trees and high-mountain clean air are great ingredients for a campground, and the Inn Town Campground is rich with the features that appeal to RVers. We spoke with Erin Thiem, co-owner of the Inn Town Campground, to learn more about the facility.
Erin Thiem: Welcome to the Inn Town Campground. We’re in Downtown Nevada City, Northern California, and we have 70 different campsites here onsite, 15 acres. in the forested foothills. We offer tenting, glamping, and RV hookups. We’ve got something for everyone. We’ve got tent sites that are private, we’ve got sites that are great for couples, families, vans, teardrops, rooftop tents, and we’ve got glamping tents that are all set up and ready for you– don’t have to pack a thing. Just bring your toothbrush.
And then we have RV sites, both full hookups and water-and-electric sites available for campers who wanna come bring their rigs to Nevada City. The Inn Town Campground is super family-friendly. We do outdoor movies for the kids on the weekends. We have a swimming pool.
We have a camp store, our communal kitchen. The kitchen is great for either tenters, RVers, or glampers, because it gives you that space outside of your campsite to use the oven, use the refrigerator, or have a nice meal. Clean up and it’s not in your space. A lot of our campers really enjoy that. And, yeah, we’ve been getting a lot of people on their shakedown, maiden voyage, so if you have a new– a rig, and you wanna test it out, and you don’t wanna go very far, we tend to be a great destination for those campers as well.
Jeff: Access roads are well planned for easy RV maneuvering into and out of the sites. Naturally, the campground store includes RVing necessities as well as snacks and souvenirs. Like many campgrounds, it’s not a cheap place to stay. Our spot for our truck and Palomino camper was in the $75 neighborhood, which is becoming more common these days. Railroad history fans will enjoy the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum next door to the campground.
