The Carey Dome Fire Lookout is a fire lookout tower complex located in Nez Perce National Forest, 9 miles north of United States Forest Service Burgdorf Guard Station, near Burgdorf in Idaho County, Idaho. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]

The listing included two contributing structures (a fire lookout tower and a weather station), one contributing building (a log cabin residence), and a non-contributing structure (a flagpole).[2]

The tower is an Aermotor Company steel tower assembled in 1934, which has a 7 by 7 feet (2.1 m × 2.1 m) steel cab at the top. It is 85 feet (26 m) tall from ground level to top of the cab.[2]

The log cabin was built in 1943.[2]

The weather station was installed in the 1950s or before.[2]
