The original Warren Peak Fire Lookout was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Crops in 1838. This tower was ten feet tall with a live-in cab. In 1959, construction began on the Sundance Air Force Station, the world’s first nuclear-powered radar station, located on Warren Peak.

The original Warren Peak fire lookout was demolished during the construction. In 1960, a new Warren Peak fire lookout was moved to a peak east of the original lookout. It was constructed with a 54 foot steel tower and cab. Warren Peak fire lookout provides a panoramic view of South Dakota and Wyoming.
