Beautiful and relaxing! Check out the Buffalo Bill Dam and Visitor Center if you're out here. Also the Buffalo Bill State Park is just west of the reservoir. Great place for a picnic.

Hard to give much information other than fact that it was beautiful and interesting to see the Shoshone river at work!

Great drive into Yellowstone. The kids loved walking over the damn. We also went into the museum and learned a bit of history. Loved the site and worth the stop.

I imagine there is good fishing out there....even if there is not a fish in the place, the scenery is breathtaking! The mountains are on 3 sides of the water and the setting as you drive by the reservoir will have you taking picture after picture. There are boat ramps and dry camping by the lake also.

We were traveling east from West Yellowstone MT when we approached the reservoir. The lake that makes up the reservoir is large and beautiful. Lots of places to put your boat in and lots of beautiful scenery along this drive. You will come to the Buffalo Bill Dam as you run along the side of the reservoir. Like most of... More

We took our sons there on our way to Yellowstone NP. The museum is a must see. Lots of info and artifacts. Totally enjoyed our visit! Take your time and read the fascinating facts surrounding this iconic man! We visited in June of 2007!

My 10 year old and I went and really enjoyed it tremendously. The information, the scenery and all was great. They had someone take you to and back to visitor center with a great gift shop and video of how much money, time and all that it took to build this one of a kind dam!! Really worth your time...

The reservoir is beautiful. Only thing was the rainfall this year was above average along with the snow melt making the reservoir water levels high. Very few boats were on the water. I am not sure if that was due to the water level or to high winds causing 2-3 ft waves.

Far more interesting than I would have thought, worth a pop out from town or call in whilst passing if you have a spare 30 minutes.
