Stand on the top of the 325-foot Buffalo Bill Dam to watch the North Fork of the Shoshone River unfurl at your feet, winding its way through a plunging canyon toward Cody, 6 miles to the east. Completed in 1910, the Buffalo Bill supports irrigation projects throughout the Bighorn Basin—and forms Buffalo Bill Reservoir, an oasis for boating, windsurfing, and fishing. The visitor center plays a short movie about the dam project and displays exhibits on the history of the dam, Wyoming wildlife, and prehistoric life in the Bighorn Basin (did you know an Allosaurus was discovered in nearby Greybull?).
