For those who love wilderness camping, Reflections Holiday Parks has added four spectacular grounds in the famed primitive spot of Wee Jasper Reserves - in the Yass Valley Shire - to its portfolio of Crown Reserve camping sites.
Lovers of the great outdoors can now book a stay at Reflections Holiday Parks Wee Jasper, a famed wilderness camping spot in the stunning Goodradigbee Valley.
Well known for its rugged landscape, the site comprises Billy Grace Reserve, Micalong Reserve, Swinging Bridge Reserve and Fitzpatrick Trackhead Reserve.
Wilderness camping is a huge trend amongst Aussie hikers and campers craving adventure and quiet time away from the hustle and bustle.
A type of camping holiday that gives fans of the great outdoors the chance to immerse themselves in the landscape and be self-reliant away from technology, more holiday-makers are choosing ‘wild’ camping stays away from national parks, or state forests.
The four rugged reserves at Reflections Holiday Parks Wee Jasper are the perfect spots for off-road campers looking to quench their thirst for the great outdoors, due to close access to incredible swimming holes, famed bushwalking trails including the renowned 420-kilometre Hume and Hovell Walking Track,.
It also features underground caves home to natural wonders like stalagmites and stalactites, and historic homesteads.
More broadly Wee Jasper offers activities for every type of adventurer, including stand up paddle boarding, bird watching, bushwalking, wild caving, fishing, and kayaking.
For those seeking a place to unplug and spend time off-grid, Reflections Holiday Parks Wee Jasper has something for every wilderness camping fan, with accommodation for those camping in tents, caravans and RVs and the site will also provide un-powered sites for vans.
The Wild Block reserve, which includes the Fitzpatrick Campground, is great for large groups, providing access to the Wee Jasper caves system and the Hume and Hovell walking track.
The Micalong Creek reserve has amenities and showers and is closer to swimming holes and walking track, while the smaller Swinging Bridge reserve has toilet facilities and potable drinking water.
Reflections Holiday Parks spokesperson Peter Chapman said: “We’re passionate about managing the state’s most treasured spots, reinvesting profit back into public (Crown Land) nature reserves for their preservation and the community’s enjoyment.
"We feel privileged to welcome campers to Reflections Holiday Parks Wee Jasper, adding it to our wide range of camping options for the ‘true believers’.
“We have seen growing demand from travellers looking to their own backyard for unique holiday destinations where they can experience something different, and wilderness camping offers just that. Wee Jasper Reserve is one of the state’s best spots to escape modern life – in fact, it’s wild camping at its absolute best,” Pete said.
“Wee Jasper is the kind of hidden gem that inspires campers to keep returning for decades. I camped there recently and hiked a part of the Hume and Hovell Track and that had more restorative effects than any 5-star spa treatment could ever have.”
Reflections Holiday Parks Wee Jasper will also be the ideal spot to stay at for The Dragon Dreaming, a unique five day camping festival taking place in Wee Jasper in October 2023.
The sustainable event blends lush, rugged nature with live music and bands worldwide, interactive art, learning spaces for adults and children, a cinema, markets and live performances.
