$35 p/n pwd 2A. $31.50 with FP discount. Great location, central to town and secure. BYO water with sullage to garden. Sites under the awnings are stacked in a bit tight, we were in the back section, with a gravel unshaded site but had room for our awning and a little tree between us and the next van. Easy to negotiate into, and there are some drive through centered sites in this gravelled area. 2 amenities blocks, both very clean and good. 20c for 3 min shower. Dump point. Great TV, Telstra and Optus reception. Didn't check out the pool and rec room. Town IGA is still great, with unusual foodstuffs and very reasonably priced.

We have stayed in Coober Pedy on many occasions when in the area. Paid $35 less 10% disc. No water hook-up to vans. Ablutions and laundry spotless. No dump point. As you come into the town opposite the shell service station there is a dump point. You can fill your water tanks for 20cents for 30litres of water. Average tanks would cost about 50cents. There is a great bakery behind the tavern in next street near the roundabout. The baker only bakes a limited amount of bread. but his pies and cakes are yum.

I really liked this park and would certainly recommend it. It is in the desert so don't expect grass, and I doubt that you could drive a stake in to secure your tent. There are a couple of permanents and there are some sites undercover, which would be a good thing in the hot weather. It will take big rigs and has a number of drive through. Previous reports so far in 2014 are accurate in describing the place. One comment I would make is why spend all that money on the new ablutions and not put in a hand dryer or at least paper towels?

We liked his park because of its central location. Water is always a problem around this part of the world but you can buy good quality water.There is now a "Water service station" where you can drive up to and fill your caravan tanks just like you would fill up with petrol, just make sure not to mix up the-inlets. This facility is however not part of the Oasis Park! Whilst the park is basic the amenities block is brand new and the Missus now wants the bathroom at home remodeled according to the standard we met here! Staff is very friendly and helpful and there are now also drive thru's available which are ideal for a three day stay. As you drive up to the CVP you might have to park on the Road outside the park. That depends however as always as to when you arrive!

Crowded and queues form at gate in afternoon but not as bad as the Big 4. Water available at amenities block but only available for daily use. No fill ups. Pool. Sweaty smelling TV room.

Chain membership - this park is now a Family Parks chain member rather than BIG4. Management were honouring BIG4 discount when we arrived due to previous bookings, which is nice. New amenity block - when last we stayed, in 2012, this was under construction. This is now open, and has a camp kitchen facility at the end. On this stay, we had a cabin so did not enter the amenities to give details.
