Forestry Lookout is a tall, wooden structure found in Mystery Lake.
There is no loading screen when the player enters the building. Instead, the door swings inside so the player can enter. Do not forget to close the door again after entering.
The interior is warm enough to keep the player from freezing during daytime, but temperature may drop below zero during nighttime or blizzards. A trail leads to the lookout from the bottom of the hill.
The Forestry Lookout does not make an ideal base because traveling up and down the hill is time consuming and increases fatigue. This means that by the time the player reaches the bottom of the path the player may be cold already. There is a wood stove inside to provide warmth and cook food, but after a few fires, fuel will need to be collected lower on the mountain and carried up. Both the Camp Office and the Trapper's Homestead make more adequate bases.

Game History Edit
The Forestry Lookout once stood in the space the Destroyed Lookout now occupies.
- Forestry Lookout is now visible from many parts of the map along the railway.
- Forestry Lookout is a 'Fire Lookout Tower'; built all over America and parts of Canada in the early 1900s.
- In Story mode, a note in the tower and the name on a lockbox under the bed seem to be a nod to the game Firewatch, much of which takes place in a watchtower and also features a theme of isolation in a vast wilderness. "Hank," the name on the lockbox, is a nickname for Henry, the protagonist of Firewatch, and the note in the tower mentions a woman frequently talking on the radio, a major component of the game's plot.
