    Hmmm, business trip on Cinco De Mayo - it wouldn't happen to be a trip to Mexico would it?

    I’ll miss you all of you too. Was looking forward to hang in the woods. Been in a tent too long out in the desert.

    Huachucas seem to make the most sense - the Reef Townsite camp is normally pretty empty - everyone goes up to the next CG (Ramsey) which has better views. The drive is a little more "interesting": gravel with lots of switchbacks and no guardrails. Not for the faint of heart, but well-maintained due to the CG at the end, so easily done with a sedan. No high-clearance 4WD required. I sold my Jeep and will make the drive in my Subaru.
    For now, why don't we assume the May 2-5 date to be safe. Sorry for the indecision & changes, but family event I have no control over.

    This high mountain campground and group day-use area is located on a site that was once occupied by the old mining town of Reef. That remote outpost got its name from the nearby Carr Reef, a tall band of quartzite-bearing cliffs that form the Huachuca Mountains' dramatic eastern front. Mining activity along the Reef began during the last few years of the nineteenth century and proceeded in fits and starts all the way into the 1950’s.

    The property occupied by the mines and the town was returned to public ownership in 1970, and in 1988, the Forest Service constructed a campground on the townsite. A number of picnic tables and tent pads were placed within the visible outlines of old cabin foundations.

    Many relics of Reef’s mining history, including the remains of the town’s old water system and miscellaneous features, are still visible in and around the campground. Evidence of old mining digs and foundations for 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.

    Garbage bins available.

    Note: Black bears in area.
