Sounded good to me.

    They mentioned there were a few more spots left if anyone is still looking for something other than the gravel lot to the right of the developed spots.
    I'm guessing that is Primitive, and the one next to the developed is Overflow. I don't think Primitive has fire pits though. I'd rather stay in overflow. It's right next to developed and there are a lot more people to party with, plus no horse crap. If Overflow is full though, I'd choose Primitive over on-site or a motel!

    Cool Re: lake cahuilla...

    After my friends and i camped our first ever Coachella at Lake Cahuilla in 2004, we all swore to never return! We are some pretty hippie dr. bronners type individuals yet still, Cahuilla completely disappointed us. I had to bail out on RadioHead just to ensure that I would get at least one shower outta that weekend and I came back to a 45 minute line only to enter a shower with nothing more than 1" of pipe sticking out of the concrete shack's wall which produced nothing more than a dribble.

    To this day I am the only one out of that group who has returned to Coachella and will continue to only because of good ol' Shadow Hills RV Resort. My other friends and I were smart enough to roll an RV last year and have all vowed to go again and continue the tradition after having the best time of our lives! We rolled into the RV park to a surprising amount of others camping in not only RVs but tents too, a swimming pool, full on real bathrooms and showers and sanitation. Lake Cuhilla would be alright if it didn't have "Warning Do Not Swim" signs all around it. On behalf of all my friends, spend the little extra $$ and go to a decent campground.

    You left that Radiohead set to take a shower!? I had a hotel that year, because no one I was with wanted to camp. That was when Lake Cahuilla would let an unlimited amount of people stay in the primative/overflow area. That probably explains the shower lines. They now allow a very limited number of people to camp. I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a shower, and that's at like 8 or 9AM, which is prime shower time!. And the showers work fine, they aren't just a pipe sticking out of the wall. Plus, if you have an RV, you can shower in it, so why would you worry about the showers at the lake? You cannot swim in the Lake because it is a reservoir, but they have a pool.

    P.S. What's a "pretty hippie dr. bronners"

    So who is staying at Lake Cahuilla this year?

    We have been there multiple years in the past.

    2007 was kind of quiet. How will it be this year?

    Look for Chicago people. We up to party

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.
