The L-601 tower was erected by the CCCs in 1940. The original BC-301 cab was replaced by CDF with a 732-6A design. The remodel working plan number is 962-2A. This and other modifications have seriously diminished the structure's historic integrity.

The lookout is now an interpretive site for national park visitors.
