“Best Tourist Park In Coober Pedy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We came here because the pool actually had water in it, the kids loved it and it was inside to keep the sun off, very hot during our stay, 40+. The grounds were very clean and tidy, and amenities amazing! We were able to park under shade and there were ample trees around the place, not what I expected, a pleasant surprise. Local artwork greeted us in reception upon checking in and the bloke went out of his way to answer our questions about Coober Pedy. Staff were also very helpful especially the local aboriginal woman with her knowledge. This was a very comfortable park, best location, we were able to walk to the opal shops, museum and restaurant/pizza. It was disappointing to arrive at the other park to find the pool was not in use during the hottest months, however the Oasis more than made up for this,the only park to stay at.

Room Tip: Be mindful of which way the sun rises and sets when choosing a site

We really enjoyed our stay at Oasis. Beautiful amenities and laundry facilities. Very friendly owner and staff. Their pool is amazing and very refreshing.
The best caravan park destination to stay at whilst in Coober Pedy.

We didn't know what to expect with the reviews that had been posted. Got there and were met by friendly staff, got an en suite powered caravan site, plenty big enough and easy to get in to, just have to supply your own water on non en suite sites. Water is precious here, don't forget, you're in the desert and local water is pumped from 26 km away. Showers are charged at a cheap fee of 20c for 3 minute if needed. Town water available for caravan and camper refill charge of 20c for 30 litres not far from the park on the main road. Did a 3 hour tour with tour guide Rudi, worth every cent and recommended. Free noodling spots around town. The town is unique and a must see. No noise. The only grass in town is at 2 sporting locations. Gravel sites.

We recently stayed 3 nights and 2 days in a powered van site at The Oasis in Coober Pedy and will be back!!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were clean and certainly adequate. The Park runs tours of Coober Pedy (with Rudi) and the Breakaway (with George) and these should not be missed!
I note the few negative comments of some reviewers. Sure, the sites are gravel, when the wind blows it is a bit dusty and it costs 20 cents for a hot shower but it is the bloody "outback" - what else would you expect! The outback has a magic of its own - just go and enjoy it!! For the outback it is a great Park and we will certainly recommend it to our travelling friends.

Whilst not the Taj Mahal, this park is one of the better ones we have been to in terms of the basic cabin interiors. We stayed in the Studio cabin and although it was not new, it was clean, comfortable and pleasant. Not much greenery in the park itself, however that it is be expected in such an arid environment. Check in was friendly and efficient. Coober Pedy is a good stop off point for long distance travellers and this park is fine for that.

This place it terrible. Shame it is a big 4. It does not live up to standards.
I called ahead as we.were going to be late and the lady was terribly rude.
On top of having to drive in the park but a phone call in the dark as there was no one there which was opposite to what was said when I called.
It is an extremely expensive caravan park and you still have to coin feed the shower.
Don't bother!

We stayed there for 3 nights, had a powered site with water - $5 extra. The water here is the best in SA worth the money. Did the Oasis tour of Coober with Rudi who was very informative being an old Miner with lots of personal stories. Sites are a little dusty when the wind blow,s which it did.
