July 1919: "Deputy State Fire Warden E.L. White and myself have established a co-operative lookout on Rocky Peak which promises to be worthy of further improvement. 3 miles of emergency wire connects with the Middle Elk line at Bakers Ranch which gives direct communication with McGribble Ranger Station and Port Orford. The line was broken the first night after completion, probably by a big buck getting tangled up in it but it has given no further trouble and certainly 'talks' fine." (The Siskiyou Bulletin)
June 26, 1930: "The range finder on Rocky Peak is being repaired and will be installed on Brushy Bald where a lookout camp is being constructed. A new range finder is being installed at Rocky Peak. Trails are being built and five miles of telephone wire is being installed at Rocky Peak." (Curry County Reporter)

October 11, 1934: "Mr. Ostrander and I went up to Rocky Peak Lookout and looked over the trail which he purposes to build. I instructed him as soon as weather conditions would permit to start on the trail and build it through to the end of the road in the south end. This will be rather hard country to construct a telephone line through as about two-thirds of the way would have to be a pole line and I think most of them would have to be tripods as the country is so rocky it would be impossible to set a pole." (P.S. King Field Report)
1936: This lookout reported to the Grizzly Mountain lookout by radio.
1937: The Forest Service constructed a new lookout house in the later part of the year.
July 1938: "The adequacy of our present lightning protection system for lookout houses was brought to light this spring when we made our first trip to the Rocky Peak LO. Late last fall we built a new lookout house on the mountain and equipped it with standard lightning protection. The old lookout house has been inherited from the State protective organization and did not have lightning protection. It was not torn down due to the late season. This spring we found it had been struck by lightning and all of the windows were blown out and the sides shattered. The new lookout house standing along side of it was untouched. E.H. Marshall" (Six Twenty-Six)
