There are only three lookouts standing in Nevada, and Ella Mountain is the only remaining staffed structure. One of a handful of lookouts in the U.S. operated by the BLM, it lies in the Clover Mountains south of Caliente NV 80 miles north of Las Vegas near the Utah border.
Built in 1962, the 14’x14’ cab with catwalk is a modified R-6 flattop with slightly slanting windows on a 8’ concrete block base.
