Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stopped over for the night on our way up north. The staff were not very friendly or helpful - almost like they didn't want to be there. The park itself was nice and clean with a good camp kitchen and clean bbq's. The playground was also nice however more for younger children not really 8 years old and older....

Stayed here on a powered site in our caravan on our way up north. It's ok for a night or two. Just make sure you request a site or cabin away from the main road. The road trains and trucks do get a bit loud. The site we were given was gravel and was clean and level. The amenities were...

We were camping in tents, and, unfortunately there were no grasssed sites, but the facilities were very celan and well maintained. The camp kitchen was one of the best we encountered on a 4 week trip, with everything you would think to need to cook a meal, eat it, and clean up.

Really enjoyed staying here on a campervan trip. Neat, well kept, plenty of room for each site and excellent facilities. Close to some shops and on the other side of the bridge from the town centre. We paid extra for an on-suite site and the little bathroom/toilet was very clean and convenient, but as the amenities block was only 40...

We stayed for the weekend at a powered site as were visiting Port Augusta to experience the Pichie Richie. We have stayed here a couple of times in transit travelling north - south. Had family join us, staying in cabins. Very clean, tidy caravan park, including amenities and cabins. Management are obviously working hard to make this more than just...

Great park extended stay while waiting for our traveling companions. A few incidents while here but all good. Well maintained park, amenities immaculate well looked after, and very clean. What makes this park special is the amazing staff. They are helpful friendly and make you feel welcome

Even though our booking was mucked up the reception staff went out of their way to sort it and we ended up staying for 4 nights in an ensuite site. The sites themselves are a good size and the facilities we used were great. The laundry was on par with other parks and at least you got some decent time...

Reviewed 17 April 2017

Unpowered camp sites are quite small in size in comparison to the scaled maps they provide. The staff are friendly but the caravan park is old. A little bit of maintenance won't hurt now and then but it's a good place to stop before Coober Pedy. Kitchen facilities are probably the highlight of this place
