Our first ever camping trip and everyone was excited (and a bit nervous). We had heard great things about Wee Jasper from friends. And fortunately Wee Jasper lived up to everything we were told. Can’t believe I am the first one writing a review!
Wee Jasper is approx. 4 hours south/west of Sydney with sealed roads all the way. We went in April so the weather was perfect for camping, warm days and cool nights - perfect for fishing, bike riding and hiking by day and toasted marshmallows and stories around the fire by night. The Reserve and its trees were in all their autumn finery.
There are a few different campsite options available but as we are novices we decided to stay at one of the more popular spots, Billy Grace Reserve. There is a playground and heaps of space for the kids to ride their bikes. There were electric BBQ’s but we didn’t need them as we used our own fire pit for heating and cooking (check with the website for fire warnings/restrictions).
When we arrived it was super easy to find a great spot to camp and everyone was really friendly and helpful, especially the Ranger and his family. One of the incredible things was that there were quite a few campers but because there is so much space you don’t feel crowded or cramped in. There are flushing toilets throughout the reserve and hot water showers too.
Wee Jasper is, aside from the toilets/shower, real bush camping, no Big 4’s with bouncy cushions here!! Beautiful birds and creatures everywhere, we even saw a wild wombat foraging around! The Goodradigbee River is situated at the back of the Billy Grace site, we didn’t fish but some of the other campers caught fish and yabbies, someone even said they saw a platypus!! There are hiking trails that we plan to explore on the next trip, of which there will most certainly be one!
