The Watchman Lookout Station is a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places for the role it continuously play in watching over the Crater Lake National Park for wild fires. It was constructed in 1932 as one of the two lookout stations so the area could be monitored for wildfires during the summer months.

The Watchman Lookout Station is also a popular hiking destination for visitors as it offers a magnificent view of the Crater Lake and the area around it, being located 8025 feet above sea level, right on the Watchman Peak. It now also serves as a small museum, mostly showing visitors the park?s fire prevention efforts and program.

To get to the Watchman Lookout Station, you may need to take the three-quarters of a mile hike through the Watchman trail.
