Welcome to Wee Jasper Reserves
Wee Jasper Reserves is home to five different camping reserves, all of which are completely unique. All Reserves, except for Carey’s Reserve now have access to potable (drinking) water and are dog friendly. As long as your pet is kept on a lead and is cleaned up after they are more than welcome. Please be mindful of the other campers, wildlife and additional pets on the Reserves. Remembering that 1080 fox bait is often laid on the properties neighboring the Reserves at certain times of the year.
At Wee Jasper Reserves there are no powered sites, the camping is considered ‘primitive’. There is a range of small goods in the Office located at Billy Grace Reserve such as ice, gas refills, 3 day fishing licenses as well as small packaged lollies, merchandise and the bare necessities. The rubbish compound is located at Billy Grace and all campers are responsible for their own rubbish, which means either bringing it back to Billy Grace Reserve to the rubbish compound, or taking it home with you.
