“Fabulous”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed three nights in a camper trailer - the site was a large, drive-through site with power and water, close to amenities. At first we had some trouble getting our pegs into the ground, until a fellow camper mentioned that the staff could lend us a power drill! Now there's service!!
The amenities block is the cleanest I have ever seen, and the camp kitchen was extremely well supplied and maintained.
The fossicking area kept our daughter entertained for hours (she even found a bit of colour!) and the pool was a wonderful way to spend a few hours afterwards. Free wi-fi was a bonus too.
Staff were friendly and helpful, couldn't fault our experience at all. Definitely recommended for all styles of camping.

Room Tip: Perhaps a site away from the main entry road would be a bit quieter.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Opal. The facilities are equal to the best we have seen. If we were to visit that area again we would certainly stay there. We would recommend this caravan park to anyone. We stayed there for two weeks. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The camp kitchen areas where kept clean each day. When we say clean, we mean spotless.

It truly is a gem of a caravan park in Lightning Ridge. We stayed 3 nites and I have to say it's one of the best caravan parks we've stayed at. The staff were very friendly & helpful and greeted us with a smile. The sites were very generous spacing and the camp kitchen is one of the best ones we've come across complete with a flat screen TV, gas cooker, fridge/freezer, 2 hot plates, microwave and dish washing liquid provided for your clean ups. The kitchen was cleaned spotlessly everyday. The CP is 5 mins from town and 200m across the road from the Artesian Baths and all tours in the area have complementary pick ups. It has a complementary shuttle to the bowls club in town as well. It even has free wifi.

Room Tip: We camped on site but the cabins looked good as well.

Not only was the Cabin that I stayed in clean and modern, the staff were very pleasant to deal with and the park was in immaculate condition. The overall experience was great and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants accommodation in Lightning Ridge.

We appreciated the spacious sites, the very good amenities, a very well detailed map of the Caravan Park and definitely good value. Think what really struck us the most was the front counter staff, the friendliness and courtesy extended to us which we don't find at a lot of Caravan Parks. We definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Park to any traveller to Lightning Ridge.
