Small well run park. Very pet friendly with grassy caravan sutes. You can walk to IGA, hardware, bakery and oodles of opal shops. Very enjoyable stay. Pub across the road and the bowling club just up the road.

Have been "chasing opal" in all opal mining areas for years. Over that time we have tried most parks in the Ridge and now just book into the Crocodile. The facilities are rustic but kept very clean and water is hot. The best part is the camp kitchen and the hosts Deb, Lionel and Aleisha. They make everyone feel part...

We booked 2 cabins for 3 adults and 5 kids who really enjoyed this stay. Was close to everything, awesome camp kitchen, clean and well maintained pool and very tidy cabins. Will definitely book this park when we head that way again :)

Small park family owned & operated. Extremely friendly & welcoming. Great location on the Main Street within walking distance to the pub, bowls club, iga & local opal dealers. The park's swimming pool is a very welcome relief at this time of year. Fantastic camp kitchen, good clean amenities & good laundry area. I imagine this place will be packed...

Booked this business from a recommendation but because of bad weather were unable to stay. Cancelled my booking six days before our stay by leaving a message on the answering machine that was apparently not received. Credit card was debited the cost of the booking - one night's stay. Shame.

I'm sorry that you feel we have been unfair to you by withdrawing money from your card. When you rang me to complain about the withdrawal you told me that you had rang and spoken to someone in the office (not left a message on the answering machine) and cancelled 2 days (not 6 days) prior to your arrival due...

I have been coming with church groups to stay at Crocodile Caravan Park for 13 years now (in the months of March, April, July and September), and the Park has only got better and better over this time. Lionel and Deb are the friendliest hosts you could wish for, and they look after us brilliantly. We sometimes have up to...

Thank you Rob for your kind review of our Park. We look forward to seeing yourself and your lovely group of people return to our Park every year. We have met so many beautiful people since owning the park and made many friendships along the way. It's groups like yours who make our time here enjoyable.

This park was everything you could ask for in Lightning Ridge. Clean ... friendly and very reasonably priced. We had an Ensuite Cabin and it was great value with everything we wanted in it. The owners were away when we visited but their daughter Alicia was extremely friendly and helpful and very professional. This park has the best camp kitchen...

It was only by chance that we stayed at The Crocodile Caravan Park as the other van parks were full. We booked a powered site for 2 nights, we were very impressed by the quirky amenities. The tin amenities block was spotless with plenty of hot water. Semi grass and gravel sites. The other couple we were traveling with opted...

Thank you for your kind review. We do class ourselves as quirky and different from other parks and I think this is a good thing as most parks are all the same and have no atmosphere what so ever. Where as we may be an older Park but we are clean and friendly and I think these are the most...
