Had an amazing 2-week coachella W2 road trip and wanted to share my itinerary because it worked so damn well!

Hey everyone, I'm a Canadian who's done a couple festivals in Canada (VELD and Osheaga), but I always wanted to go to a camping festival and Coachella worked out amazingly with my school schedule this year. I got most of April off, so I bought 2 W2 passes at the general sale and found a buddy who was interested in doing a road trip. I'm a huge fan of climbing and surfing, and I love California but there's a lot of places I haven't been, so I wanted to work in some of that given how much free time I had. Anyway, here's the details of our trip, hoping it may inspire some future Coachella road trippers!
PRE-TRIP:
  1. Bought 2x W2 passes + Shuttle Pass (unwanted) and car camping on General Sale day ($1200 US total). Wanted W1 and actually had a shot at them but my credit card was maxed out.
  2. Bought flights on SWOOP from Hamilton Ontario (near Toronto) to Vegas - $250 round trip.
  3. Reserved a rental SUV in Vegas for 2 weeks. (Considered a JUCY but eventually decided tents and an SUV would be more flexible and cheaper).
  4. Did some general research on the places I wanted to go, had a rough idea of an itinerary but no bookings.
Sunday April 14-VEGAS:
  • Parked at Hamilton Airport ($65 CAD for 1 wk + $15/day for each additional day).
  • Direct flight Hamilton to Vegas 9:30pm. Packed everything in 1 backpack per person, didn't pay carry-on or checked fee.
  • booked a room at Luxor hotel that same day on Priceline (came to $80 US total for 2 queen beds).
  • Booked campsites at Zion for next 2 days ($20 + $50)
  • Walked around Vegas till 2am drinking beers, checking out casinos (I had never been).
Monday April 15-ZION:
  • Picked up Venture 2P camping rental pack from Basecamp Outdoor Gear in Vegas. Upgraded to 3-season sleeping bags. Came with stove, sleeping pads, 2P tent, camp table, 2 camp chairs, knife, headlights, lantern. $325 for 2 weeks.
  • Grocery run at Walmart, got pasta, meat and sauce, chili, water, etc.
  • Arrived in Zion, did a sunset hike of Watchman trail, set up camp and cooked dinner.
Tues April 16-ZION:
  • Bought America the Beautiful 1-yr all-included National Park pass (covers a whole vehicle). - $80 USD
  • Hiked Zion: Angel's landing was amazing, very cool classic hike with scary cliff drops. The Narrows hike, another classic, was closed (typical in April). Ranger said we had hiked most of the open trails in Zion.
  • Opted to give up our $20 site and instead drive to Page AZ to check out other parks. Easily booked a campsite, $25.
Wed April 17-Antelope Canyon/Grand Canyon:
  • Went on Antelope Canyon tour. $60 US, run by Navajo locals. Short, photography-based tour. Had to either book ahead or show up early for cancellations.
  • Drove to Indio, beautiful drive and stopped at the Grand Canyon on the way.
  • Stayed at Indio motel (booked day-of, $100 US for 2 beds). Owner held onto our camp knife and tent pegs for the weekend!
  • got In-N-Out burger - was amazing
Thurs April 18-SO-CAL:
  • Debated going early for Coachella camping spot, but instead spent the day getting supplies at Walmart (Got info from another camper to get a Canopy - this was key) and in Orange county/LA. Checked out Newport Beach.
  • Pulled into car camping at 10pm, short lines. Spot was pretty far away in 1017 st S, but it really didn't bother us too much. Neighbours were all friendly, most of them stayed around camp for most of the festival though.
  • Checked out silent disco and went to bed.
Fri April 19-COACHELLA:
  • Woke up late, made breakfast, got ready and headed to festival for 2pm. Blown away by how amazing the grounds were. Antarctic was also dope. Saw about 15-20 acts, just exploring the grounds. Went back to camp 1x in evening, then went back to the festival until 1am, then slept.
Sat April 20th-Coachella:
  • Entered fest at about 3pm, regrouped at camp in evening, then went back and stayed till 1am again. Slept
Sun April 21st-Coachella:
  • Lined up for Sunday Service at 7am. Stayed till finish
  • Went to camp, headed to the grounds at 3:30pm, stayed until midnight. Went to turn-down tent for a couple hours, grabbed food, had beers with neighbours and slept around 2-3am.
Mon April 22nd-Joshua Tree:
  • Tore down camp and ready to go by 10am - needed a jumpstart though (dude did it for free because we only had canadian version of AAA!)
  • Grocery run at Wal-Mart
  • drove to Joshua Tree, rented climbing shoes ($10 each), and tried to rent a crash pad but the place was closed.
  • Cooked dinner in the Boy Scout parking lot, then hiked out to backcountry camp (you have to self-register)-FREE.
  • ran into a dude hiking who was gonna go bouldering the next day so we planned to meet up in the morning.
  • Stars in J-Tree are amazing. We threw "Underwater" by Rüfüs du Sol on repeat to relive Antarctic, and right at the final second we saw a gigantic shooting star!
Tues April 23rd-Joshua Tree:
  • Caught sunrise in J-tree from our campsite, then tore down camp and met up with the guys to go bouldering. Bouldered till 3pm, then returned our shoes and did the Mt Ryan hike at sunset.
  • Drove to Santa Barbara for a halfway stop on our way to big sur. 4-5hr drive, motel cost $100 for 2 beds.
Wed April 24 - Surfing/Big Sur
  • Got up late, drove to Pismo beach (such a nice surf town) and rented some boards and wetsuits for the half-day-$25 USD each. Waves were good for beginners to fool around on. Packed up around 4pm and drove towards Big Sur, Highway 1.
  • Saw the elephant seals at the southern tip of Big Sur
  • Saw evening and sunset along Big Sur - truly the most amazing drive I've ever done.
  • Got dinner in Monterey and then drove to Yosemite in the dark. Got to the park entrance at 2AM and slept in the car.
Thurs April 25 - Yosemite
  • Woke up at 5am to drive to Camp 4 and get spots in this famous campground where rock climbing was born. We were 12th in line for 59 spots, and cost is $6/person per night. (*NOTE: this first-come first-serve system is getting shut down forever in May - you will have to enter an overnight online lottery).
  • We set up camp (6 people share a site - our site-mates were really friendly and we met lots of great people in Camp 4).
  • We hiked Upper Yosemite Falls which starts right at Camp 4. Took all day as we decided to try to get to El Capitan during a trail closure (many trails were closed due to snow). We didn't succeed but it was fun.
Fri April 26 - Yosemite
  • We rented shoes and boulder mats in Yosemite and went bouldering until 3pm. There are great boulders right near Camp 4.
  • At 3:30pm we did the Mist Trail hike, which brings you to Vernal falls and Nevada falls. It's beautiful and a lot easier than Upper Falls.
Sat April 27 - San Francisco
  • Caught sunrise over the Dawn Wall of El Capitan. This was an amazing sight to me.
  • Tore down camp and headed out before 11am. Drove to San Francisco (5 hours), crossed the Golden Gate in.
  • Got a cheap motel in San Francisco ($110/night for 2 beds). Used the Ford GoBikes ($10/24h) and did a bike tour of Japantown, Chinatown, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Mission District, Coit Tower and Telegraph hill, Haight-Ashbury, and Presidio/Palace of Fine Arts. Got home at about 3am, exhausted.
Sun April 28th
  • Woke up at 7am for the long drive back to Vegas. Stopped at the google campus in Mountain View to ride the GBikes around.
  • Got to Vegas at 5pm, returned our camping gear and ate some great Mexican food.
  • Flew back to Hamilton on a 10:30pm flight.
Overall we had an AMAZING coachella, saw some breathtaking views, got a taste of California climbing and surfing, did some amazing drives, and met awesome people. We spent a lot of time outdoors and we felt super relaxed by the end of the trip. I think overall we did well saving money, and had a good mix of planning and spontaneity.
WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY:
  • Plan only 1 day in Zion and book campsite in advance - too many closures in April. Maybe spend some time in another park (Death Valley, Mojave, etc)
  • Spend less time on Friday getting supplies and more time in So-Cal (check out LA Observatory, LA Proper or San Diego)
  • Try to do less campsite re-groups for coachella, and just stay once I enter the grounds. Maybe go a little later in the day to stay out later. Try and find a big group there to party with early on. Bring more Mio Sports (1/person/day would be safe) for electrolyte hydration :P
  • Try not to let our battery die on Monday - think I left a door open, oops
  • Get to J-Tree a little earlier for a boulder mat (3:30 or so)
  • See the eucalyptus forest in Pismo Beach!
  • Bring my own climbing shoes, maybe other climbing gear too.
I definitely travel very fast and I was lucky to have a travel buddy who was able to keep up. But if you want to see some amazing parts of california and have some free time around coachella, I hope this gives you some ideas! Drop any questions below, and let me know if you think it would be good to crosspost this anywhere.
Thanks!
PS: We got so much good coachella info from this Sub. Not sure how it would have gone without everyone's help. Thank you!
