Lake Cahuilla

Description:

Surronded by the stark beauty of the Santa Rosa Mountains, Lake Cahuilla (pronounced Kah-wee-ah) is a favorite recreation area in the Coachella Valley. The park offers individual and group camping, fishing, picnicking, swimmings, special events and equestrian and hiking trails. RV and tent campers will find more than 150 spacious sites (46 with hookups) for individual and group camping. Amenities include showers, a dump station, and picnic/play areas, complete with barbecues, tables and lawns. Camp for the weekend or enjoy an extended stay. While swimming is not allowed in the lake, the huge swimming pool (open April through October), provides a welcome respite from the summer heat. The pool has lifeguard stations and showers. Expansive lawns, shaded areas, convenient parking and a picturesque setting make Lake Cahuilla an ideal setting for special events, ranging from company picnics to concerts to boat races. A new group area features barbecue grills for group services, bike racks, restrooms, and for equestrians, corrals, hitching posts and a horse trough. Whether it's a group event, family picnic or holiday camping trip, Lake Cahuilla offers some of the best recreation in the desert.
