About Big Creek Baldy Lookout has been used as an observation point for spotting forest fires for over 60 years. This lookout stands 51 feet tall and has a 225 square foot room. Due to tower height we discourage bringing young children or pets. This lookout is equipped with propane lights, stove, heater, one double bed, one twin bed with mattresses, shovel and some cooking utensils. The lookout is not wired for electricity and has an outdoor toilet. There are no potable water sources available at the cabin; we do recommend bringing your own water as all open water is considered contaminated. The lookout is open from June 1 to September 30 (weather permitting) and can be reserved 3 days in advance of your stay by contacting the Ranger Station or Contact the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or, the cabin can be reserved 180 days in advance of your stay.
