The fourth privately-owned tower to be listed, Tope Creek Lookout, was constructed by the U.S. Forest Service in 1936 and later transferred to the Oregon Department of Forestry. It was staffed until the early 1970s, when it was declared surplus. The 103’ timber tower with 8’x 8’ L-6 cab with catwalk has been restored by Brian Wizard, the current owner.
