5 Camping-Friendly Summer Festivals
COACHELLA ~ APRIL 11th - 13th & 18th - 20th
So you were lucky enough to get a ticket to Coachella? Awesome! You’ve (hopefully) sorted out your accommodations, are figuring out what to pack, and sifting through the festival’s FAQ…. well camping is a great option for Coachella! And here at Happier Camper we LOVE camping! Being on the Indio site is ideal - you can roll out of bed and walk to the festival. Off-Site camping is not as easy, but this is an affordable and fun alternative!
