Redding mining camp is the downtown of Redding.
The mining camp is divided into several parts, like the Morningstar Mine/Kokoweef Mine HQ, the caravan tents, the Last Gasp Saloon and the Mole Rat Mambo fighting contest.
Anyone can bet at the Mole Rat Mambo fighting contest - a person needs to place a bet onto the mole rat and hopes that it wins the match.
The Kokoweef and Morningstar Mine need the excavator chip so that they eventually can beat the other Mine...
The Redding mining camp appears only in Fallout 2.
