I know it's hard to believe now, what, with all the hot air blowing across the board right now...

Think the Safari Tents have always had air conditioning.

Safari tents always had air conditioning and the El Dorado have never (to my knowledge).

Deal-maker for sure... Air conditioned tents would make the price so worth it.

Does anybody have pictures of the Lake Eldorado tents? I'm considering this option for next year...

I'll see if I thought to take pics of anything, but I will say the tiny pic on Coachella.com is misleading - the tents have no floor and the grass was not the best... It was Weekend 2 though, so it was likely nicer the first weekend. Cots also weren't very comfortable, but manageable. Space-wise it was great. The tepees looked pretty small, but all the tents were rather spacious and all the same size (and meant for 4 people), probably why they're doing away with the 2-person tent option next year.

The teepees were huge for 2 people. I agree they really should have a tarp flooring, the dusty/dead grass sucked and got over everything.

Showers/privacy/quiet were all amazing though.

Oh cool, it was hard to tell from the outside what the tepees were like. Showers were great.. I was initially mortified to see the SINGLE shower trailer, but the entire el dorado site seemed to be rather heavily undersold. I think my longest wait for a shower was around 10 or 15 minutes.

I didn't snap any pics of the tents unfortunately. They were spacious and tall though. And the sides could be partially disconnected for better airflow, too. That really didn't prevent them from becoming death ovens as early as 7:30am though. Just plan on getting up early or finding shade elsewhere to lay down in. Overall the experience there was pleasurable and I'm definitely doing it again for '13.

when it says "private restrooms and showers", does that mean each tent has its own, or the eldorado area has it's own private shitters, but you share with the rest of the eldorado campers? and are they porta potties? or nicer trailers?

thanks for all the info so far!

so do you think now that they have AC will the sides of the tent be different so you can seal in the cold air?

They don't have AC, typo on the initial pre-sale info. (PF said this Monday)

Private insofar as just private from the rest of tent/car camping. There were porta potties by the entrance/exit, as well as some by the showers and sinks (at the other end of the lake). Also indoor restroom trailer for both sexes with flushable toilets, which apparently had A/C. I never bothered to check it out but was told it was nice.

*edit - yeah, BIG typo re: A/C... Dani had edited my thread title in the Questions forum but must have missed this one. Only the $6,500 for 2/ +$1,500 for each additional person Safari Tents will have the fabled A/C, beds, and complimentary breakfast...

Thanks, Dani!

I think El Dorado Teepees still have a minor typo though, it is described as a 10x13 tent which is the same dimensions as the 4-person tents.

And we'd have to calculate the final area ourselves? What the fuck are we paying 3 grand for if I have to multiply things by pi.

We've done El Dorado twice now and are going to do it again come tomorrow morning. This year you had one shower trailer per gender (2011 was one trailer split in half), which meant the only time I waited for a shower was the time when the guy in the front of the line didn't realize there were five stalls open. The toilets are a mix of a ton of portapotties, and one air conditioned trailer per gender which had like two stalls and two urinals or something. Plenty of charging stations.

The four person tents are big. Cots are kind of "meh", but whatever. Teepees next to the lake with the mountain in the back is a gorgeous backdrop for daytime. The thing I like about El Dorado is that it is just enough luxury to make it a substantial step above car camping, but is still "rough" enough that it feels like Coachella (unlike, I'm sure, the Safari tents). People are almost exclusively mid 20s, and very friendly. Lots of hanging out during the day. Tons of international groups.

It costs about as much as a hotel, which is admittedly more luxurious, but at the end of the day the hotel isn't seven minutes from the Coachella entrance. To me it is the perfect mix of ambiance, location, and comfort.

There isn't really a central shady area, but in our "alley" of maybe 40-50 tents, I only remember a handful of shape canopies (two from one group, and one from another). But you can bet they made the most friends. We just sat out in the sun. Then again, this was Weekend 1, I remember in 2011 we resolved to bring a shade canopy the next year.

Damn't I was literally figuring out ways to afford the $2000 for the teepee because I though it had all of the amenities that were listed earlier. This is a huge bummer, looks like I'm keeping my hotel reservations.

I know this has been discussed but I am still a bit confused. Does lake El DOrado have AC? Do the tee-pees have AC? I ask cause last Coachella I got really bad heat exhaustion no matter what I did. It was basically impossable for me to enjoy my expierience to the fullest do to this.

The tents are too big to put a canopy over -- some El Dorado campers brought canopies and put them in FRONT of their tents. A LOT of Weekend 1 campers lost their canopies in the big windstorm we had on Friday -- the dumpsters were full of broken canopies.

Under 18 is ok in Eldorado with a legal guardian. I brought my 14-year-old this year and NO PROB.

It might just be a quirk, but the 2013 rules say +18 for tents in El Dorado but not for the teepees. I don't see any mention of an age restriction in the 2012 info.

Apparently your son ruined it for everyone and now kids will be restricted to giant kick-ass teepees.

Stayed there in 2011..... it was tits! Everyone was nice and chill, except the angry lookin coiled up turd we found by our tent one morning. It was steaming mad........ looked like it was about to strike at any second. Eldorado is very convenient and security was good enough to keep our shit tight but bad enough for us to find some medicine and bring back some floozies!! I got mine for 2013 already!!! Later
