At one point Washington was home to more than 700 fire lookouts, but now fewer than 100 remain. Enthusiasts like Rex Kamstra have done a great job preserving facts and photos of the history of these structures. This official list of the remaining towers has also been organized so peakbaggers can visit all of them. There are currently 93 standing lookouts remaining on the official list, plus 2 which were discovered after the list was made.
