You drive West out of Cody WY, only to see ahead three tunnels right through the mountains!! When you pop out of the last tunnel, you are immediately swept away by the beauty in front of you! Turquoise waters surrounded by High mountain peaks! The view from the dam is amazing, a must see, bring your camera! And at night,... More

We really enjoyed stopping and visiting the dam and visitor's center. We parked in the parking lot and was picked up by a courtesy golf cart to take us up to the door. Enjoyed the history and story surrounded by the dam. Fun to walk over the dam and look at the beautiful landscape surrounding the area. A very nice... More

Beautiful dam and visitor center. Free. Allow 30 min to an hour. There is a 15 min video which shows all the difficulties they faced building this very important dam in 1902. I am in awe of the workers dedication to complete this difficult project. You can rent an audio tour for $3.00 unless it is too windy in which... More

Be sure to take time to watch the 15 minute video detailing the history of the Dam in the visitor center. Very interesting to learn this was the tallest dam in the world at the time of it's completion in 1907. It's worth the 30 to 45 minute stop!

This is worth the stop. Parking is far away but they have a courtesy golf cart come pick you up and bring you to the center. Coming or going from Cody this is a worth while stop to see.

Easy to find on the road to Yellowstone. This was the tallest dam in the early 1900. Very interesting, beware looking over the side if you have a fear of heights

It took my breathe away looking down! It was the deepest dam for many years, and the natural gorge there is beautiful. Make sure you stop on your way into Cody.

Breathtaking views! One of the most beautiful drives we've ever taken, as we passed through on our way to Yellowstone NP.
