This was our second time staying here with our fifth wheel RV, this time for a big Family Gathering. First, I must compliment the owners and staff for making us feel welcome and completely accommodated throughout our stay. They were kind, helpful, and patient while we dealt with

We had a wonderful stay at Inn Town Campground over Easter. We stayed in RV site 10 which we think is the best site based on walking through the campground. It backs right up to a wooded area that the kids had a blast exploring. And, we could keep a watchful eye from our site.

So glad you and your family enjoyed a camping trip close to home. Thank for appreciating the bathrooms and attentive staff. We look forward to having you return (our rates vary in the off season if you want to come at a different time of the year to keep the costs down?).

We’ve camped in several locations in California, but it’s usually in a tent or trailer. We tried Glamping here since it was a one night stay. First of all, the site we got did not have the amenities that were shown in the photo and posted in the description. I thought I was

Thanks for your feedback Nicole. I’m sorry there was a discrepancy on what you thought you were going to have at your Glamping site and what was provided. We did indeed change that site over the winter and updated our website, reservation system and social media channels at that time. We converted the bunk beds into two twin beds to make it more accessible to a larger number of guests. The bunkbeds had weight limits, which negatively affected some families in the past. As for the fire pits, there was a dedicated fire pit at the site, but it did not include the propane. This was confusing to guests, so we changed the site to be consistent with all of our other sites by offering a pit for rent. Every fire pit we rent includes a full bottle of propane (I am unclear what you mean by “powered by pets”), which will burn for roughly 8 hours, not 45 minutes. They are CSA certified and very safe to use in our environment (we have used this variety for over 3 years without incident). However, we do ask people to refrain from burning anything but propane in the pits. Again, I’m sorry our Glamping experience didn’t meet your expectations, but it sounds like you enjoyed the scenery of the campground and might have a better stay with your RV in the future. Thanks for the feedback and we will try to isolate why our updated information didn’t make it to your browser. Thanks, Dan & Erin - Owners

Pre-season trip. Beautiful spot. Would stay again. We have a 35ft 5r and we had room. Mostly glamping and tent camping. 1mile walk into town. Bathrooms were awesome. Would stay again. Had full hookups

Thanks, glad you enjoyed! You're correct that we have mostly tent camp sites, but the glamping and RV sites are actually equal number... but glad you and your 5th wheel felt welcome, that's always the goal. Happy spring camping.
