Sited 55 feet above Spruce Mountain in Wyoming’s Medicine Bow Mountain-Routt National Forest, the Spruce Mountain Fire Lookout Tower offers dramatic views, a unique sleeping experience, and above all, lots of solo time.

Used as a forest service fire lookout until the mid-1970s, the tower is available for rental from June through September. It is furnished with two single beds and amenities including a propane heater and stove, a refrigerator, lights, and cookware. A pit toilet is nearby. It’s all available for $40.00 per night. The tower is reachable via good gravel roads about 7 miles from Albany, Wyoming.
