    I would not eat anything from that lake. You aren't even allowed to swm in the water cause it's so contaminated. I think that's why you aren't allowed to swim in it. It looks pretty gross.

    I've got space for two people on my campsite, it's one of the non-overflow RV sites. MSG me if you need a place, especially at the most awesome campsite for Coachella. I don't want money for it, but if you bring enough of the right kind of snacks i can guarantee you a spot with us.

    Does anyone know what the rule is as to how many tents you can have on your site is?

    orly? you probably aren't allowed to swim in it for other reasons, but this site says this:



    Lake Cahuilla is located approximately 10 miles south of Indio. Take I-10 to Washington, south 3 miles to Highway 111. East 2 miles to Jefferson. Go south 3 miles to Avenue 54 and travel east 1 mile to Madison. Turn south to Avenue 58 then west 1 mile to the lake. The lake holds good populations of rainbow trout, largemouth and striped bass, channel and flathead catfish, and bluegill. Cahuilla is open year round from sunrise to sunset. Trout are planted from November until the end of March with striped bass and catfish picking up the summer slack. No motorized boats are allowed. The shoreline is easily accessible for bank fishing. There are three campgrounds situated along the lake and a dump station for self-containers. For more information contact Lake Cahuilla at (760) 564-4712. Campground Reservations (800) 234-7275.

    so, dunno, just wondering if anyone's done any fishing or seen anyone do it.

    I did see some people fishing there, they seemed to be locals, not Coachella people. I still however stand by what I said, I wouldn't eat anything from there. Good luck to you though.

    Everyone seemed to like scooby snacks at Cahuilla last year!

    Definately a no on the skateboard. It's pretty rough where there is cement, and it's mostly dirt and gravel. It's a pretty small area though, so you won't have to walk very far to get around.

    Can you park an RV in there? We're keen on some where to sleep.

    Lake Cahuilla is about 10 minutes from the concert area. Roads get blocked, so parking is not likely. But, if there is enough of you that would like a ride to/from the concert, we may be able to pick you up and take you into the concert area (we have a pass to get past the road blocks).

    Email for more info: coachellafest@yahoo.com

    Happy Coachella!
    What roads are you refering too? I have camped at Cahuilla the last 3 years and i've never had a problem with road blocks between Cahuilla and the venue. Is this something new?

    This would be awesome! Laste year we hitch hiked there both days but coming back we had to wait over an hour for a cab after we walked about a mile to any roads were cabs could even get to.

    Shuttle Please!!!

    Haha... The water is fine. The lake is filled by an aqueduct from the colorado river. It's primary usage is water storage for the water system, but they also turned it into a recreational lake. Any lake that is a reservoir has bans on motorized boats and human contact.

    They do lift this ban on occasion, however. In fact, yesterday there was a triathlon at the lake, where plenty of people went swimming. The water is fine, and there's nothing wrong with the fish that come out of it.

    I'll see you folks out there- last time I was there (for coachella) was way back in 2003! Not quite so crowded then, it sounds like it will be quite the party this time around

    I'll bring the cups and balls. How about a tournament on Thursday night?
    That would be awesome. One problem - I'm an idiot and I realized there is no chance I'll be able to fit my 8x4 ft. pong table in my 2 door car. I dunno, maybe I'll try to improvise somehow. Walk around Thursday night and if you see someone playing pong say whats up.

    My friend and I are leaving a day early to go out there, we might have a chance at crashing at some Condo, we have a space reserved for fri-mon, should we chance it at seeing if its open for thursday night too and just pay the extra in cash if it is?


    Also, there's just 2 of us, and a rather large tent, so if you need camp space, get back to me ASAP by private message with why I should let you camp with us. =)

    Attention! If you hate to have fun... please come to our campsites, 21 and 22. We hate music, drinking, smoking, 420, and did I mention... drinking. (sarcasm detector) Whooooo hoooooo... This is my 4th year in a row and I cant freaking wait. I still have room at my campsite if you need to crash.

    I've taken a cab back from the festival a couple times. I think it was about $20. You have to walk pretty far to get a cab after the festival though. About a mile. It's best to just make some friends at the campgrounds, who are gonna be driving, and bum a ride. Thanks again Michigan friends!

    Wow, it is filling up pretty quick! 25 out of the 60 sites are already reserved, and I think about half of those got booked today. They also added a warning that it is the Coachella weekend 25, 26, 27th. If you want to stay here you should probably get on it pretty quick!
