 Ophir Recreation Reserve Camping Site, Lower Lewis Ponds Road, Ophir NSW 2800 Australia

Following up from Part 1 of this Camp Trip series, we continued our night sitting by the warm fire. When we turned off our head lamps, lanterns and torches, I managed to see the milky way and all the stars. It was breath-taking and I spent hours staring up at them while I listened to my friends share stories.
For supper, we were treated to delicious home made stew full of beef, chorizo, carrots and potatoes. We warmed our bodies with Lindt hot chocolate and heated milk.
For breakfast me and Betty got some hot cross buns, smeared Nutella inside, and stuffed in three marshmallows. We then wrapped the bun in foil and put it into our fire for a couple of minutes. Once toasted we opened the foil and the the Nutella and marshmallows had melted into a yummy gooey mess. It was so amazing I vowed to make these at every camping trip from then on.

We finished the day off by hiking small trails around the Reserve and playing with visiting dogs. With our coffees in hand, we packed our tents and divided up the food.

With such a beautiful backdrop of yellow and orange trees, it was hard to leave this place! But I know I will be back, especially around May when I know the leaves start turning gold. Thanking Hai for his organisation and the contributions everyone made into making this camping trip so fun.

Directions to Ophir - From Orange NSW, start at Icely Road driving towards Lower Lewis Ponds Road. Once reaching the T intersection, turn right on Lower Lewis Ponds Road. Brown sign pointing will say "Ophir".
Follow this road (it will go from tar, gravel and dirt roads), you will pass the Carbone Council gate. The road starts descending, follow the road slowly and you will reach Ophir Recreation Reserve. The beautiful tree and river will be on your right, toilets to your left.
