Many relics of Reef's mining history, including the remains of the towns old water system and miscellaneous features are still visible in and around the campground.

In addition to the historic information, the views along that trail are well worth a visit. Facilities at the group site include a ramada that contains 6 picnic tables, 2 large group barbecue grills, 2 food prep tables, information board, toilets, parking area, and a large area for tents.
