crazy that the beaver creek fire was burning while we were there! Not many reviews on the tower so I thought I would post one. Lots of going up and down stairs so be prepared for a workout and it is pretty rock around the site. Wear sturdy shoes. We had several people stop by probably just checking it out... More

I can't believe this is on here. I've got some Memories of Spruce Mountain Lookout Tower. The title of my review is something that only a few people will know the meaning of. Used to snowmobile to the lookout tower, sometimes at midnight and have a few "shots" with friends before we'd high tail it back down to the Albany... More

The Fire Tower overnight unit is approx 15' X 15' with two twin mattresses on frames, a table for 4 with a bench, 3 chairs, chest with built-in drawers and some NFS... More

We were thrilled to have been able to book for 3 nights last summer at this great lookout tower in Wyoming. Unfortunately, I spent way to much time telling people to leave our campsite. It seems that everyone knows about this site now and wants to take a look. We even had a family of 6 come walking up the... More

For a long time this place was not known by many, which made it the perfect hidden get away. It has increased in popularity and is hard, the last we tried, to get reservations. It is a unique and relaxing stay if you are an outdoor enthusiast. It has 360 degree views of mountains, lakes, timbered hills and wildlife. You'll... More

Bring sleeping gear -there are two twim beds (with mattresses) and we squeased 4 people in. Has stove, table, and a fridge that only... More
