The desert has long been a destination for Angelenos to flee the lights and craziness of the city and set up camp in a place where the noises of the 101 are only a figment of your imagination. For nearly two decades, the desert has also become a place to attend some of the biggest music festivals, like Coachella and Stagecoach. Those that don't want to limit their desert excursions by lodging in a hotel can opt to stay at Base Camp, a pop-up RV and tent camping resort during the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals. The site is at 82950 61st Ave, just 6 miles south of the festival grounds, with nonstop service to the festival. Guests have to option to camp in an RV, tent, car or luxury tent. Amenities are aplenty and include a swimming pool, hot air balloon rides, art compound and restaurant. Seekers of the ultimate desert and camping experience stay at Base Camp. Period.
