The Lynn Woods is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Lynn Woods is a small, uninhabited location, with all the inhabitants having been killed by raiders before the Sole Survivor discovers it.[1] The nearby area is infested with deathclaws, and is located near a ravine that is used in the quest The Devil's Due, wherein the Sole Survivor can return a deathclaw egg to its nest.

In this location, there is a small tower with a siren on top of it. Reaching the camp area will cause several raiders to spawn (also by lockpicking the steamer trunk in the shack), activating the siren will cause two leveled deathclaws to spawn. Normally, the tower is safe from the deathclaws, but if the deathclaws attack the Sole Survivor when they are in the tower, there is a chance they may lunge into the tower, which will result in them being able to climb the stairs.

Notable loot


To the west of the unmarked deathclaw nest, a mirelurk queen will sometimes spawn. This is level dependent.


The Lynn Woods only appears in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenes

The real life Lynn Woods Reservation (founded 1881) is a 2,200-acre (8.9 km²) municipal forest park located in Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts, located in the same general vicinity as it appears in the game. There is a tower at the highest point there, just as in the game, called simply Stone Tower, and was built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) as a fire observation tower.

Reloading to a point before the area was first entered can cause the key to spawn properly, however it still may not spawn every time. [verified]
