    I'm up for which ever spot - just let me know if I need to bring water.

    I have been a bit quiet due to holiday activities, and also trying to settle whether I will have a conflict or not with the previously agreed date. Bottom line: I still don't know (family stuff). If this plays out, I'll have to push out the date 1 week until May 2-5. That would include Cinco de Mayo, so I guess I'd have to bring tequila ;-)

    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.

    p.s. There's no water up there, so we'll all have to bring H2O.

    Nada, it's the Reef Townsite CG. They are very close to each other, but Ramsey Vista is *much* more crowded.

    I think I found my way.
    This high mountain campground and group day-use area is located on a site that was once occupied by the old Reef Townsite. 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. In addition to the historic information, the views along that trail are well worth a visit. 14 sites elevation 7020

    Ok, I found it my campground App. South of Sierra Vista on Carr Canyon Rd. (FR 368)
    I doubt very seriously that Pedro or AZsthilman will be able to find it. Somebody bring yellow tape to mark the route! ��
