Thread: Drive from San Diego and Car Camping times

    Default Drive from San Diego and Car Camping times

    I plan on getting off work early on thursday, how long will it take to get in from SD with traffic and when does the car camping lot start to really fill up? It is worth it to leave at 11 versus 3?

    The earlier the better. Once it hits 5 on the fields, it just becomes insane.

    If you live in SD then you should be pretty familiar with the flow of traffic and when things get bad on which roads ... and if you don't live in SD, then you need to give us more information about where in SD you're gonna be leaving from. The traffic can & does get pretty bad during typical rush hour times, but the drive to Indio shouldn't take you more than two hours, unless you're stuck in awful traffic going up to Temecula (I assume you're gonna to be taking the mountain pass and not going up via the 10).

    This year will be my first year getting there early on Thursday (always come up after work on Thurs in the past) so I can't help you with the specifics of 11 vs 3pm, but logically, if you're concerned about being close to the festival entrance, leave earlier.
