    Make sure you get your reservation in the mail. They won't let you in without it. Mine came the day the lineup was announced. That was a good day!

    I have a RV site reserved at Lake Cahuilla, we have 8 or 9 people coming with us, however you are only allowed 6 per site. Our Rv will fit everyone, but I don't want to be stuck not being able to get some of us in. Does anyone have a site reserved and not having up to 6 on it? if you are willing to share your reservation, please contact me at reneenyk@hotmail.com.

    this is my first time to coachella..theres about 6 people in my group. we originally wanted to just do onsite camping to make things simple..but my friends dont wanna deal with the silly rules that go along with camping onsite. is lake cahuilla really the place to be? even for a first timer? what do you guys think? im lookin to book something today or tomorrow for my group.

    Have you ever camped onsite? It's far superior to Cahuilla as far as I'm concerned. Haven't camped there in a few years, but when we did we were coughing for a week because of the dust AND we had to deal with traffic everyday as opposed to just when we arrived and left.

    Onsite=nice grass, showers, walking distance to festival. no-brainer

    The lady said there were 2 developed sites left when I called this morning so I grabbed one. I did Overflow(primitive) last year as a first timer because my brother wasn't 18 yet and it was awesome! We got there around 1am friday night, picked a spot and pitched a tent. It was fine all we did was sleep and shower there which wasn't too bad! The sun will hit about 8am and the heat will be unbearable but I think that'ss be anywhere where you're in a tent. All in all it was a cool place to stay!

    When I thought about staying onsite, there was a line outside, and people said they had been waiting hours to get in, followed by a Police inspection point featuring Indio PD. Not my idea of fun. There isn't really any traffic in or out of Lake Cahuilla now either since they limit the overflow. And almost no line for the showers. I would say the dirt is the only thing that isn't awesome about Lake Cahuilla, but it all part of the experience, it's not that bad. Good people. Lot's of partying. Good Times!

    5 miles from fields to campground is doable yes? I realize it may not be so easy after being on your feet all day but it might take less time than getting out of the parking lot. Does anyone know?

    I've stayed there 3 times. You do not want to walk it. It is (one of) the only places south of the venue, so there is almost zero traffic on your way to the festival since everyone else is coming from the other direction.

    two words why off-site (Lake Cahuilla) is better than on-site camping:

    NO RESTRICTIONS

    called Monday morning (1/29) and actually got a developed site, was very surprised. lets see... paying about $1000 for a hotel and being isolated or going to Cahuilla for a constant party, and meeting good people???? camped here in 03' and 04' and can't wait to get back. this is part of the experience for me, i just hope its not so fucking hot this time.

    Dose any one remember/know what the policy on extra vehicles at Cahuilla is; how much it costs and if there is a limit. I know I read it somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

    I have Sat & Sun reserved at Lake Cahuilla; Site #CAH-048 (developed with electricity), and I don't need it now. It is on the outside of the develped sites so it looks toward the lake and primative spots.

    http://www.rivcoparksreservations.or...s.asp?parkId=4

    Let me know if you want it because someone offered me $75 (it cost $43). You can have up to 6 people and 2 vehicles. With electricity you can run an air conditioner or fridge. That's plush camping...sk8mike

    the place is full. Are there any other sites that are near it that would be cool to be at? I am a first timer so I have no clue.

    Hey Paul,

    I think it is 2 vehicles per site. I received my confirmation via email and all car and people capacities were listed... hope that helps!

    So is Lake Cahuilla just like a big open area or is it wooded in? I know this is probably a stupid question but camping where Im from is wooded.
