    Of course I remember! We could see the DJ lights flashing all over the mountains from the developed camping area and we had to go check it out. Someone in your group was even giving my friend DJ lessons I think. Good Times! See you in a few months!

    I have two questions:

    Being the equestrian side is it going to be infested by flies due to the horse poop?

    Will I be able to leave my spot and drive out of the park with out any problems ( really long lines to go out, coming back and seeing that someone took my spot) or how does it really work


    thank you !!

    I have never stayed in the equestrian area, but I have hug out and partied over there. I've never noticed horse shit or flies, but I've heard stories about it. That is a really big party area which is cool. There are never lines getting in or out of Lake Cahuilla. And, no one will take your spot. It's yours for the weekend once you book it. There is also a ranger that drives around if you have any problems.

    Hey little help here from someone that camped here last year.

    If everyone else hasn't heard the camping has sold out pretty quickly. I have 3 friends that want to pitch a tent next to our RV. We already have 6-7 people staying there in the RV. Did they actually enforce the people limit last year? I read that in other years they didn't.

    Last year we had 16 people in 2 sites, I don't think they care about the number of people. They do drive around and I have a feeling they do care about the number of cars per site. We had two cars per site a couple being vans so...yeah hahaaha

    I also don't think they care about the number of people, last year we had 3 cars there in our overflow spot.

    Sounds like this thread needs a bump for those who are in need of other camping options.

    Cahuilla was a great alternative. We camped there in '05 and had a neat time... good people and good parties. Pool and showers were nearby, I'm assuming that's still accurate. $60 a night I think... there were 7 of us with one vehicle. Good luck.

    Does anyone know what the deal is with overflow spots? I'm scrambling to find a place to camp now that car and tent camping has sold out.

    We did overflow my very first year in 06. It's not bad u get there and it's just a huge desert at the foot of the mountain where you set up camp anywhere you want. There's a bathroom house with a shower, which I believe is free, it was then... It's a great alternative, just get there when it's light out cuz you won't be able to see a thing on Thursday night

    Just an update for you kiddos....I just got the second to last primitive site for Lake Cahullia this morning at 8 AM. So this place is sold out by now! Going to be there thursday, do you kids know how the camping works in the primitive site? Should I be there earlier than the 2pm check in so I can get in line for a good spot out there? Also, who is partying on Thursday night?! We are 6 and will be ready to GET DOWN.....

    It doesn't really matter when you get there for over flow, there are a couple little trees but nothing that will provide much shade. Get there before dark, just so it's easier to set up camp. And, everyone parties Thursday night.

    I never drive because I preparty in the morning. I always find a DD or hitch a ride. I have taken a cab back before, it took a while to find one but it was pretty cheap.

    yeah, they are going to be booked solid by now. but what sucks is they're sold out every year, but when you're there, the place has empty spots. i guess people book it and then decide not to go.

    I would be more than happy to share the spot at lake cahuilla if by chance you have or can get an extra 3-day festival pass. I know its a long shot but its worth a try. thank you. PM me

    Does anyone bike to the festival from Lake Cahuilla? It seems like it would be about 30 min and I bet you spend more time than that getting in and out of parking, right?

    How are the roads for biking?

    How about the festival, are there places to lock them? Theft seems like a real possibility -- seems like the sort of event organized thieves would target -- is this something to worry about?

    I have never biked to the festival from Lake Cahuilla, but I have seen people doing it. If you are okay biking 5 miles in 100 deg. weather, I'm sure it is a reasonable option. The roads are all good, but I'm not sure how bike parking works at the event.. Hope that helps.
