Developed in 1911 with a log cabin 1 mile east, a D-1 log cupola cabin was added on the summit in 1914. By 1941, a 10' pole L-4 tower was constructed, replaced by the present 2-story concrete & frame live-in tower in 1983. It is staffed during emergencies and is also available to rent in the summer through the Stillwater State Forest office. The L-4 cab was moved to a museum 1 mile south of Kalispell in 1987.
