“The worst of the 14 campgrounds we stayed at in Australia”
Reviewed 1 February 2010

During low season, the owners close down the larger shaded area and pile up all campers in a small cramped courtyard. We were assigned a narrow slot between a bunch of raucous teenagers and a large camper which kept its noisy air conditionning on all night.
To make things worse, the edge of the courtyard was lined up with plastic bags and other garbage items blown by the wind.
Lights in the bathroom automatically turned off after a few minutes.
Do yourself a favor: try one of the other campgrounds in town!!

Reviewed 23 April 2009

After the long drive down from the Red Centre we were looking for somewhere cheap to spend the night in Coober Pedy. Having been camping for over a week an exhausted from driving 1000km we splashed out on a real bed getting a basic 'cabin' (hotel room actually!) at the Stuart Range park. For $75 it was good value (BYO linen) for a private room with ensuite, aircon, TV and small fridge. It was clean and there though we didnt need it, a good pool, laundry and camp kitchen for campers / caravans. One of the best bits about this place is the ajoined Pizza Bar. Family Pizza for $20 with the Lot (Yani's Special)... awesome. As I said the 'cabins' are actually hotel style rooms, clean and well appointed for the budget traveller. Considering the price of most things in central Australia its a good find.
