Charcoal kilns 1879, & free Campground w/burro

Saw the amazing 50 foot tall charcoal kilns. They were built using Swiss design in 1879 by the Chinese laborers. They cut down the trees, burned into charcoal, and hauled charcoal 30 miles for mining. Seems like huge amount of work for only 3 years usage as not enough trees or mine, you would think they'd check first?

Also near remote so free campground. In remote mountains with burros roaming the campground at night. And also nearby National Parks former residences damaged by flood, but started remodeling, and left some alone, some part done, now off limits except to mice..
