Camping in a Fire Lookout

The decommissioned Sheep Mountain Fire Lookout in Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming, is not exactly a tower, but it doesn’t have to be because it’s already high up on the mountain. It was constructed of rock by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1950, so you can bet it will be there for hundreds of years to come. But what makes this lookout so special is that it is available to rent overnight for camping. Yeah, it’s real camping, with no plumbing or electricity, but it has a set of bunkbeds, a “single vault toilet” (outhouse), and you don’t have to pitch a tent. But the biggest draw of the lookout is the spectacular view. It’s so far away from city lights that you’ll see stars like you’ve never seen before.
