Lightning Ridge Holiday Park offers a great camping spot right in town. Beau and Belinda are lovely Managers who are more than happy to make sure your stay is comfortable. IGA was just over the road, with the two main streets within easy walking distance.
Right next door is the Water Park and heated Diving Pool (only open during the warmer months). Also within walking distance are a range of eateries, galleries and jewellery stores.

In addition to the above features, the Lightning Ridge Holiday Park reception serves as a Tour Booking Office and a pick-up point for local tours. Just ask the staff about fossicking for opal onsite and they’ll point you in the direction of the rock pile. It’s handy to take a spray bottle, so that you can spray the rocks and really see the glimmer of the opal shine through.
During the peak season (April – September) you can enjoy FREE Pizza Nights at the Camp Kitchen every Friday. Saturday or Sunday nights are usually Roast Night for $12.50 per head.
