Hi all
Just looking at taking my dad for a scratch and detecting around Ophir in a couple of weeks.
Never been there if someone could point us in a half decent spot with camping or close to camping that would be great.. preferred near the creek or river..
Any maps or mud maps would be appreciated..
Thanks

There is a great little campground at the river crossing at Ophir. 20 sites, $5 per night booked at the Orange visitor information centre. Toilets and I believe non potable water available.
Alluvial gold in the river and surrounds and still nuggets to be had as well.
Good luck!
