Once you arrive at Bear Basin Lookout and the adjacent Pierson Cabin, you might need a couple minutes to catch your breath. There are panoramic views that extend from the Pacific Ocean in the West, to the Siskiyou Wilderness and Klamath Mountains to the east. This is a place of rugged and remote beauty, and camping in a fire lookout tower is the best way we can think to celebrate it. You can bring your camera, but know that there is no way of capturing these views. There is a futon in the lookout, but if you rent the adjacent cabin there are beds and kitchen amenities. Remember to book way in advance, and be sure to send us a postcard if you make it to this wilderness outpost!
