Comments from other recent reviewers are echoed,
This park, whilst modern and having excellent, clean facilities for small numbers is grossly overcrowded during school holidays and poorly regulated.
Sites are numbered but unregulated with visitors told to park where they wish. Capacity is exceeded by doubling up campers on sites which are already tight.
In turn, that means that showers and toilets in the single toilet block are queued back at peak times (especially when getting kids showered).
On our first night, I heard some disputes. I was surprised to find ourselves the recipients of this on our second night when, after occupying our site, power cable and equipment, a guest threatened me with physical assault. As the office was closed and all sites full, there was no option but to leave.
Definitely a poor option if travelling in a camper; you are better off by the roadside out of town.
There are other excellent accommodation options in Coober Pedy. If possible, we suggest that you look elsewhere.
