We stopped to see the gates open below the dam and were amazed at the mist across the canyon. Very good history of the area was available. Must stop if you go to Cody.

You will most likely be driving by this coming/going to Cody area. Worth a stop to take in the natural beauty while there. Free!

Nothing special. Just another dam / reservoir. Nice place to stop and take a break from our drive. Would not go out of my way to see it but if it is on your way, way not.

Well worth the stop. This time of year with the winter run off the water was gushing and the reservoir was beautiful.

We did see it on passing and took note and some pictures. Other than that it was not a focus and we would have needed to researched more on this item.

This is another undervalued reservoir next to Yellowstone National Park. The colors were amazing and the lake was fabolous! A must see attraction on the way to Cody! :-)

I've driven by this beautiful lake many times and it's always a scenic view. It looks like a great place for boating and has spots one could pull over for and enjoy picnic. Right on the scenic road to Yellowstone just 6 miles from Cody.
