Lookout Mountain has served as a fire detection site since at least 1911.
With the highest number of first fire reports in the Methow Valley, Lookout Mountain Lookout was placed in standby status by the Okanogan National Forest in 1998.
Established as a camp in 1916, a log cupola was built in 1931. The present classic 14' x 14' L-4 with catwalk on a 25' timber tower was constructed in 1937. Lookout Mountain served as an Aircraft Warning Service site during World War II.
The cabin was repainted as a volunteer project in June 2022.
