    Only 5 more spots left in the main campground, for week one! Just a warning to anyone who's planning on getting a developed site.

    man! i can't believe the first weekend already has Cahuilla completely booked up! I don't remember when I got my tickets last year but I sure dont think it was this early.... guess I'll be car camping or buying a ticket for the second weekend this year.

    Have you tried calling to reserve an overflow "primitive spot" yet? I would be very surprised if those are already sold out. They are only available by phone. I would hurry though! Also it looks like there might be a couple sites in the equestrian area. It shows them being handicap spots on the sites, but I think they are usually just normal sites. You might want to ask about those also.

    Hey, thanks so much for the info. I would go and get a campsite immediately, but I haven't gotten my tickets yet, and I need to figure out if my friends are coming or not

    I just wish I could have the same camp site as last year- Lake Cahuilla on the second night of Coachella is where my girlfriend and I first got together, and it would be really special to do it again this year. But, primitive site it is, I guess. I feel like the first weekend is going to be more crackin, all the artists will be performing for the first time, etc.

    Also, I wonder if there's anyone who is willing to have a few more campers at their already-reserved site.

    We have a RV spot that 5 or so of us will be staying at. From what I've been told is that you can also have a couple of tents on the side of the RV spot, and they won't complain. I have some people that have asked me so far to use those spots, but nothing is set in stone. If anyone is screwed and needs a spot, email me at shytownhavoc@yahoo.com and I'll let you know if I can help ya. (Full warning, we are planning on having DJ Equipment with us.)

    Do the developed sites with electricity have regular power outlets?

    Has anyone ever ridden a bike from the lake to coachella and if so how long does it take?

    People do it. I would not recommend it.

    Well, we tried for weekend 1 and failed. So had to move our party to weekend 2 oh well. Can anyone direct me to a taxi service or something of that sort that can be used everyday to get back and forth?

    Hi All!!
    Thankfully booked one of the last spots for weekend 2 and can't wait! We stayed there last year for the first time and can not fathom staying anywhere else. It is so serene.

    People keep making new threads about buying and selling Lake Cahuilla sites. This is the place to post about that.

    Just snatched a spot at Lake Cahuilla. Looks like I'll be there Thursday night - Sunday. Any tips on this place?

    Also, I know it's a long shot, but do they provide a shuttle to the festival?

    My first tip would be to stay until Monday. Second tip, I'm guessing you booked an overflow spot since the rest are full, if your have a tarp or EZ UP canopy, bring it. Shade is very scarce in the overflow area and of course it's hot. Bring swim wear for the pool, Saturday and Sunday morning, it's crucial. Bring quarters for the showers (50 cents for 3 min). Bring firewood, there are fire pits. Thursday night is the biggest party night. Bring ear plugs if you can't sleep to late night DJ's. And unfortunately, there is still no shuttle to the festival. Been hoping/asking for a shuttle for years!

    Bonus tip: If you like to fish, you can fish in the lake.

    Thanks sk8r. I actually booked a normal spot, but I had to get a little cheeky. I booked spot 70 for Thursday night, and spot 71 for Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately, my crew can't stay Sunday night. I don't know how that spot was still available this close to the festival, but i swooped as soon as I saw it.

    Thanks for the tips though! I'll definitely plan on bringing an EZ UP. Will people be DJing every night, or just Thursday night?

    Nice! Those are cools spots! Not much shade, but right next to the lake. There usually are people DJing every night, particularly in the equestrian and overflow area. Shouldn't be too loud by you because there is a camp host spot near you.

    What's the best way to keep my drinks cold through Sunday? I know I can just freeze water bottles beforehand, but what about beer?

    Also, are there any good breakfast spots between the lake and the fest?

    We usually need to run to the store to get more ice at least once during the weekend, it's won't last 4 days in the desert. There are no breakfast spots between the campground and the festival, but there are a bunch about 10 minutes away, sort of past the festival.
