The Lake Cahuilla Campground and Recreation Area are located in La Quinta, California.  La Quinta is just south of Palm Springs and Palm Desert.

Lake Cahuilla Campground

We camped there in December of 2015 as we were going to the 2015 King of the Smoker BBQ Invitational in La Quinta and wanted to camp instead of get a hotel room.

The Campground is tucked back to the hills.  Would I camp there again?  Maybe after I checked other camping options out first.  It was nice, but kind of in the “boonies” …

I’ve added lots of campground photos to my site – The Camp Site – Your Camping Resource” as well as photos of the pool, picnic and playground area.  Photos of the Equestrian area and some information about the Campground.

It is near Coachella and might be an option for a place to stay if you attend a concert out there.
