Hello fellow Party goers! This will be our second trip down for Coachella but this time around we decided to do it right and get an RV and drive down from vegas!
Now considering the onsite RV camping is all sold out, I have done extensive research to find the best location to park this big beast of ours.
Here is what i have found:
Total for the shadow hills resort is 330$ for 5. But we all get/need bracelets so we would need to sneak " the girls" or the new friends into the grounds for the after party. Its 7 miles from the grounds. They have nothing special organized, as in breakfast, shuttles, dj by the pool or guest wristbands. They will call me back once they have figured out the "guest" bracelet situation, and i will update my post.
Then i called lake cahuilla national park. We'd get just a dirt parking spot, over 50 are still available for 55$ all 4 days! Cheap but no electricity or water if we run out...well we're Phacked! Also, we only are allowed 6 per rv spot or else we need to pay another 55$ for am extra 6. She said park rangers are there checkin 24/7... No swimming in the lake but only 3 miles away
Now onto the last rv resort indian wells. They have 20 out of 150 spots available with water n electricity. 330$ for 4 nights 5 people. 3 miles away. Ihop across the street. Basketball court, pool tables, and 3 pool with extended night time hours aswell. Unlimited guestssssss!!!! If we get caught bringing in guests its only 5$ a day for extra people! Sounds like a winner!
Then there are the people who claim to live close to the grounds on so called ''ranches'' and would be willing to rent us a spot for +- 200$ for the 4 days , but once again, no electricity, no water, and no hundreds of people to throw down a crazy after party with...
We have everything booked other than the Parking situation for our RV and we are very much confused on what the best option would be. We need to act fast! Please help!
My reason for this post is to ask, how was transportation in taxis or shuttles from either of those places? lets say we leave at noon indian hills in a cab and come back at 1am... will we get stuck in hours of traffic? they are 3.5miles aways, at least 45 minute walk and we are not really looking to walk after such a long day. Will there be special lanes for cabs? I called the Indio cab comapny and they just said there will be pick up areas, but they dont know where yet..
Any reviews or comments on the research i have done? Is there an obvious choice? We are just looking to get to and from the grounds easily, bring back new friends to our RV without a problem and party all night, without complaints.
Also if any one has a cancelation and cannot use their official coachella RV parking, we would be glad to take it from you with a premium of course.
Much Appreciated, Team Canada.
