The Tolmie Peak Fire Lookout is one of four fire lookout stations built in Mount Rainier National Park by the National Park Service (NPS) between 1932 and 1934. The two-story structure houses a lookout station on the upper level and storage at ground level. The design was prepared under the supervision of Edwin A. Nickel of the NPS Branch of Plans and Designs. The newly completed structure lost its roof to a windstorm and had to be repaired. It is secured against strong winds by cables attached to deadmen. The wood frame structure is used as a visitor contact point on weekends.
