Inn Town Campground

Inn Town Campground, Kidder Court, Nevada City, CA, United States

The Inn Town Campground is one of those breathtaking rural escapes that’ll give you the idea to sell your home in the city. In the sweeping, picturesque forestscape of California’s Gold Country, adventurers can disappear from the noise, traffic, and chaos of life beneath skyscrapers. The campground gives guests the opportunity to lay their head in a traditional tent, a glamping tent, or a trailer, all while roaming 15 historic acres of more than 2,000 trees and breathing crisp, clean air. But the best part of the Inn Town Campground, in all its family-friendly glory, is that it just opened...TODAY (July 1st, 2016).  You could be part of its inaugural summer, complete with movie nights and a communal fire pit.
