Probably the most beautiful spot I've ever slept. You get a private view of Mt. Shasta to the west and Lassen to the south, with cool geomorphological features and lava fields speckled in front.

There are two single beds with mattresses inside. We brought sheets and sleeping bags, then added a sleeping pad on the ground. Lots of space for tucking and storing things so it doesn't get too cluttered. There's a wood-burning stove inside the lookout, but it was so warm we didn't need it.

The bathroom is clean and stocked with TP. No showers or potable water. There were a ton of bugs while we were there, so don't forget the bug spray.

We went on a 10-mile out-and-back run to Medicine Campground on Medicine Lake, which has awesome swimming!
