Discover Indio, CA


Home to the world-famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and bordered on either side by Joshua Tree National Park and the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, Indio, CA offers a dazzling mix of wilderness and culture unlike anywhere else in the country. Rent an RV in Indio today, and just let yourself go wherever the desert takes you. It’s practically impossible to take a walk outside in this city without stumbling into something astounding. From its art festivals to its proud agricultural sector, from world-class casinos to its unique natural habitats, and from the San Andreas Valley to the peaks of the San Jacinto Mountains, there is no place on Earth like Indio. Book an RV in Riverside County, CA and you will not be disappointed. There’s always something to do in or around this “City of Festivals,” and with your Indio motorhome rental, you can see it all.


The Great Outdoors


Just 20 miles from the heart of Indio, at the foot of the Indio Hills, sits the magnificent Coachella Valley Preserve. This park boasts 20,000 acres of desert wilderness, wildlife and trails unlike anywhere else on Earth. Keep an eye out, for instance, for the endangered Coachella Valley fringe-toed lizard, known for its ability to “swim” through the fine sand particles in order to escape both predators and the blistering summer heat. And if you stop for a rest at one of many the spring-fed pools in the Thousand Palms Oasis, see if you can spot an entirely different sort of swimmer known as the rare desert pupfish! The nearest site to enjoy beautiful, lush, palm-tree studded groves is just four minutes north of Indio, at the Indio Hills Palms State Park.


But of course, you don’t rent a motorhome in Indio, CA just to hang around near the city! Take your rental out to the sprawling Joshua Tree National Park to see the absolute best wild terrain California has to offer. With almost 800,000 acres of land, Joshua Tree is actually home to two distinct desert ecosystems; the Mojave and the Colorado. The possibilities at this park are practically endless. At Black Rock Canyon, for instance, you’ll find yourself surrounded by Joshua trees, junipers, and cholla cacti, and campers often have encounters with ground squirrels, jackrabbits, cottontails, and dozens of beautiful native birds. Keep an ear out at night for the sounds of coyotes “singing”; they like to hang out around the campground outskirts. Elsewhere in Joshua Tree, you might encounter the unearthly rock formations of Indian Cove, the breathtaking sights of Keys View (you can actually see the San Andreas Fault here), and the eerie, hollowed-out “eye socket” indentations of Skull Rock.


Once you’ve had your fill of Joshua Tree (if that’s actually possible), take your Indio RV rental over to the other side of the city to the 280,000-acre Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. Reaching heights of 10,834 feet, this beautiful area features some truly awe-inspiring sights. From its snow-capped mountains to its canyons and backcountry trails, this park is home to innumerable hidden gems that you simply must see for yourself.


RV Parks


Indio sports a tremendous variety of RV parks in and around the city. Many of these are open to both long-term and short-term residents, so they come with a wide spread of services and amenities. Take your luxury Indio RV rental over to Village 29, for instance, for easy access to Spotlight Casino. Indian Wells RV Resort, on the other hand, offers 300 paved sites with full hookups, complimentary WiFi, a swimming pool, and a ton of community activities. Over at Shadow Hills RV Resort, meanwhile, in addition to full hookups, you’ll also find a heated pool and spa. They also brew fresh coffee every morning!


As you take your Indio camper rental out a bit further, say, into the national parks on either side of the city, there may also be a number of spots available for you to park. Be warned, though. Some areas may fill up around the busier parts of the year, and these areas don’t offer hookups. These areas also don’t tend to offer much in the way of cell service.


If you’re looking to take your Indio motorhome rental out to some nearby cities and towns, you’ll find no shortage of destinations. Downtown Indio is 23 miles from Palm Springs and 77 miles from Riverside. Want to explore California’s coast? Indio is between two and three hours away from both Los Angeles and San Diego. And if you’re up for even more of an adventure, the Mexico border is also just two hours away!


Exploring the City


Indio is an absolutely stunning city, and there’s certainly no time to get into everything it has to offer here. Its most famous attraction is certainly Coachella. This massive spring music festival attracts about a quarter of a million people, and features rock, indie, hip-hop, and electronic music. In addition to music, the festival also works with a number of established and up-and-coming artists to build large-scale, location-specific art projects, which it showcases at the festival and in nearby campgrounds.


In addition to Coachella, other fun local festivals include the Southwest Arts Festival, which features over 200 artists in every medium under the sun, as well as the Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival. Celebrating the date palm harvest in Coachella (which produces about 35 million pounds of dates each yar), this weeklong celebration includes carnival rides and live entertainment such as camel and ostrich races!


Another prime Indio attraction is the Shields Date Garden, a historic palm orchard established in 1924. In its theater, you’ll be able to catch the short movie, The Romance and Sex Life of the Date, any time of the workday, and in the shop, you’ll find just about any kind of date-based product under the sun.
