A little about us

The concept of Riba's Underground Camping & Caravan Park began in 1994. The first section was opened in 1997 and so began the only underground tent camping in the world. In 2004 extensions were completed to include individual camping areas plus underground budget rooms. Riba's is still expanding into the future. Under the stars we also offer both powered & unpowered sites. Free showers, enclosed BBQ cooking area & coin operated laundry are available. On site is an Opal Mine where Jason conducts a very informative evening mine tour. We provide a very unique style of camping. All of this is set in a very quiet part of town. William Creek Road is only 4 km south of Coober Pedy off the Stuart Highway. Your hosts Jason & Ariane are happy to book one of the many tours of Coober Pedy, or give you all the information of the local attractions to be enjoyed.
