About the Campground
At an elevation of 7,200 feet, this high mountain group day-use area is located on a site that was once occupied by the old mining town of Reef. 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. Evidence of old mining digs and foundations from an ore mill provide points of interest along a three-quarter-mile interpretive trail which begins and ends at the northeastern end of 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.
