The check-in staff were very friendly. Being off-season, we had our pick of powered caravan sites. Coober Pedy is a desert town, so there are no water taps at the sites and you have to pay 20cents for approx. two minutes of water in the shower. This is fully understandable given the location, however the site cost per night is... More

We stayed here on a recent trip through the town heading north. The staff are friendly, and the grounds are clean and well maintained. There were a few "out of order" signs on some of the facilities, like the camp kitchen oven and the water filler for caravans, but overall the place is fine.

We liked the apartment style room we had which had a drier and washing machine. It was adequate as far as accommodation goes and good for a night or two but nothing fancy. Lounge area had the only TV and non in bedroom

We pulled in late in the afternoon without a booking. There was no problem finding a site and the amenities were good. Clean and plentiful toilets /showers. Restaurant with Pizza nite on site with a bar and live entertainment! Well appointed camp kitchen. Modern with tables chairs, tv, microwave, etc. Children's playground.

This park does not live up to the high standard that you would normally associate with a Big 4 park. Let's start you pay 20 cents per approx 2 mins in the shower, though shower 3 in the male amenities wasn't working and gobbled up 40 cents with out operating.
