We usually free camp but this Park lets you stay in the old Van Park next door for $10 a night - no power or water but what a bargain. Lovely new owners and the pizza they serve every night at happy hour seals the deal!!

The park is very clean and friendly. We stayed for three nights on a powered site (probably would have stayed a bit longer except for the flooding heading our way). The owners are very obliging and offer friendly and informative information. Happy hour pizza was a great surprise at 4.30 as well as tasty, gets guests together and new friendships... More

I am sitting in my motor home as I write this. Flooding in central New South Wales forced us to detour further north via Walgett so we decided to visit Lightning Ridge for one night. However, after booking in to the Lightning Ridge Holiday Park, we were told about their 'happy hour' where the staff cook pizzas for guests. This... More

My family stayed in a powered site for 3 nights. Amenity clean. Artesian baths 1 min drive away, theme park pool was 2 min walk away and free pizza at 4.30pm! Park owners quite keen for all their visitors have a nice time. We very much enjoyed a true blue, fair dinkum Aussie holiday. Recommend to all.

This park is really great. The young owners Belinda n Beau are fantastic & put on pizzas every night for happy hours. They get a huge crowd most days. If they ever decide to open a pizza shop, I'd happily recommend them

Reception by Belinda was first rate. We had phoned from 2 hours away and there were only two sites left. Most of the sites in the park are too tight to put awning out and park your vehicle.

We stayed three nights And thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The owners have a great depth of local knowledge allowing you to visit more than the advertised tourist spots . The park itself was clean and tidy although the laundry and amenities are a little dated but will be upgraded in the offseason I believe. Happy hour in which people gather... More
