This state park is convenient for people in and around Cody, and a beautiful view when coming from Yellowstone Park. Picture perfect, and an amazing feat of engineering which creates the beautiful reservoir. There are many places to stop and play in the water, a few boat ramps, but not much shade. The fishing is fantastic both summer and winter... More

I'm sure you can see every star in the sky at night parking here. I believe the sites are dry but you are close to Cody for any supplies you would need for a stay at this park. Mountains are on one side then the lake and mountains on the other side of the lake, the view is very nice... More

Very beautiful scenery. We only drove through the park on our way to Yellowstone National Park. We stopped at a few sights for picture taking. The mountains and rock formations are unforgettable.

As you meander through this area on the way to the entrance of Yellowstone you are in for a treat. Awesome wind eroded rock sculptures dot the tops of the bluffs. The reservoir is directly next to you for a good part of the way and there are many pull outs and picnic areas to enjoy a quick stop and... More

The view is very nice, but the north side tent sites are not advised. Our tent was almost blown into the lake, and the ground was hard as rock for pounding in your stakes. The campground is also near the road, so traffic noise throughout the night. Perhaps the other campground in the park is less windy, but we only... More

We pulled in to camp on the North Shore. It was amazing. For $17 we could not beat that view! Waking up facing the lake was amazing. We drove up the road to use the shower. You do have to pay for them - make sure you have quarters! But it is worth it to have a shower! Great place!... More

Stop at the many spots around the lake. We saw deer, pelicans, geese, and elk. There is also a population of bighorn sheep. Fishing gets better later in the summer.

They advertise showers on the web site. It doesn't say anything about paying. The views are beautiful but nearly no trees for privacy or shade. Both campgrounds are located next to a busy road. Loud semis and sirens kept me awake at night.

Okay, if you want to see some beautiful scenery and have ample opportunities to shoot some cool pictures of Big Horn Rams, Moose, Bison, Deer, Elk, Prairie Dogs, Bears and other critters along with some outstanding geologic formations, this is one place you don't want to miss. Be sure and check out Buffalo Bill Dam, some interesting stories go along... More
