Taking a left at the road junction, it is 12 miles to lower Nome Creek, the Ophir Creek Campground and the put-in for floating Beaver Creek National Wild River. At Ophir Creek are 19 campsites nestled in tall white spruce trees on the bank of Nome Creek. From here you can enjoy fishing in Nome Creek or take a short day-hike over to Beaver Creek. Also nearby is the 3-mile loop trail to Table Top Mountain, with awesome views of the higher peaks in the White Mountains.
Great little campground, great views, few people and a great price! road in is a bit rough but would definitely do again!
We camp here every fall. The drive from FAIRBANKS is absolutely gorgeous, especially when you turn off at Davidson Ditch to drive into Ophir Creek Campground. There are great hikes on the way to the campground and when you drive in almost all of the spots have water in their “backyard” since the sites are usually situated on a bend near the creek. There is usually a good mix of RV’s, trailers, and tents. The grounds are kept up nicely and it’s usually pretty quiet.
