The Buffalo Bill Dam is beautiful in the morning sunlight! There were some interesting facts at the parking area. Was wondering though where the actual visitor center was. Maybe we missed it.

This was an interesting stop on our way from Cody to Yellowstone. There is a great view and interesting collection of information about the building of the dam. Great little gift shop.

It was closed due to road works but the drive is worth it. The pictures were wonderful and the historical markers gave a lot of information.

drove by the dam five times. As dams go it is nothing special architecturally. The lake is very long and there parks and pull over locations along the road.

Explains how the dam came to be, how it was built, and who was involved. Buffalo Bill was quite a man and definitely made his mark on Cody.

During the summer months, there is a trolley tour that goes to the Dam. It travels a set route around the city.
