Inn Town Campground in Nevada City California features full and partial hookup RV sites of varying length and widths, dozens of tent camping sites, and glamping canvas tents all located within a heavily forested setting. Inn Town Campground is essentially a really nice Forest Service campground with luxury amenities included. Adjacent to the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum the campground is easily accessed from the Gold Flat exit on California Highway 49/20.
Inn Town Campground provides luxury camping amenities in a down-home and historic setting. The grounds for the park are of historical interest with a preserved location for a Chinese Burial Ground (the remains have been moved back to China), location of the old main line railroad that ran down to Colfax during the late 1800’s/ early 1900’s, and old mining equipment (located along the 1 mile trail to historic downtown Nevada City) including the infamous water cannons used for Placer mining.
Inn Town Campground luxury amenities are highlighted by the 3,000 square foot communal building featuring a comfortable reading room, game room, camping store and entertainment area with fireplace and big screen TV. The building also contains a fully stocked kitchen with two refrigerators and multiple dining tables (you bring your own food). On the back side of this building are restroom and shower facilities including two family restroom/ shower rooms. In addition there is a laundry. Outside is a propane powered fire pit, tables and chairs. By spring 2017 a new swimming pool will be added and ready for a refreshing dip.
The park was designed to include and keep as much of the natural setting as possible. The campsites and glamping tents are all located at various elevations dependent upon the natural terrain. RV access can be a bit tight for extra large RVs but anything under 40′ will fit. Tent campers have choices between drive up campsites or campsites with short hike-in access (gear carts are available). The glamping canvas tents are located in two areas with the main row sharing a community propane fire pit. A couple additional glamping tents are located a short distance away in a bit more private setting. All glamping tents enjoy fantastic backside patio views overlooking the grounds.
As noted earlier there is a foot path that provides walking access to historic Downtown Nevada City. The first 3/8 mile of the path wanders through an old garden and along wooded trails crossing old rail lines. The final distance is along sidewalks adjacent to secondary roads. Nevada City California is best described as a mix of Jackson Hole chic and Key West funkiness all mixed within an authentic gold mining era community.
In addition the park also features a community outdoor theater that plays movies in season on weekends, 2 additional bath houses (each with one outdoor shower and a dish cleaning station), and multiple propane powered fire rings. The family friendly environment, natural setting, proximity to town, and immediate access to points of historical interest all combine to make Inn Town Campground one of the more unique camping destination in the United States.
