Apgar Lookout overlooks the Lake McDonald region. It is a two-story wooden structure with an enclosed 10-ft tower and 14- by 14-ft cab. This is one of two basic designs found in the Park. The first lookout was constructed on the site in 1929 and was destroyed by fire two weeks after completion. This identical structure was built in 1930. Located a mile high, it is the lowest elevation lookout in the Park.
