The campsite was built with a $15,000 donation from Camp CACHUMAN, the organization that runs the popular Cachuca Lake campground, which hosts an annual event called the Camp Cachea Festival.
Camp CACHEA is a celebration of Camp Cacha, a famous Mexican lake, but also a festival of camaraderie and camarades in which hundreds of campers gather in the sun for hours on end.
Campers get to see their friends and family on the lake, and the campground’s owner says the camarade is so good that he’s selling a special ticket for it for $10.
The event is held in July, and there is no charge to camp, Camp CACAZ said.
There is a $10 fee for camping in the campgrounds main pavilion.
Camping is free during the day and is open to campers at the campsite or for an hour in the pavilion, Campo CACHUAN said in a statement.
The lake has a sandy beach, but its waters are muddy and sometimes have large puddles and waterfalls that make it difficult to swim.
There are a few swimming holes on the water, Campa CACAOAN said.
“We’ve got a few people who come in to see the lake but not to go fishing, or to enjoy the lake,” Campo COACHAN said, adding that they want to have people visiting the lake.
Campers are encouraged to bring their own food, water and water purification tablets and take advantage of the facilities at the camp sites.
The campgrounds, which have been open since 1995, are owned by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which manages a number of national parks and other land in California and Arizona.
