Scott Mountain located near Roseburg, Oregon has been used for fire detection continuously since 1912. The first lookout was a log cabin built in 1911. In 1933 it was replaced by a 100’ wooden tower which in turn was replaced in 1957 with the present 30’ ODF flatroof cab with catwalk.

The tower is maintained and staffed by the Douglas Forest Protective Association.

The lookout and related fire detection camera destroyed in the Archie Creek Fire in September 2020
