This is a very interesting place. The video at the Visitors Centre on how the dam wall was made is exceptional. Such a difficult feat. It was pretty hot when we visited and we noticed the local youth use the reservoir to cool off by jumping off the rocks to the cool waters below. We also did the 4 mile... More

The size of the reservoir and how it changed the area is of note. Just make sure you also go over to the interpretive centre for the nearby dam.

The Buffalo Bill Reservoir is quite impressive and should be seen when traveling the road to the dam.

The reservoir parking lot as a couple of items used with the dam on display and and informational display. You can view these while waiting for the Visitor Center golf card "shuttle" operated by volunteers for tips. Great opportunity to get out and stretch your legs! Enjoy?

A reservoir is a reservoir. I don't see this as a main attraction unless you are very interested in reservoirs. We passed it several times, but did not stop at the visitor center. I'm not sure if I missed anything or not!

WOW! I had done a little research before our trip to Yellowstone but had no idea how amazing this reservoir was. It goes on for miles!

If you are an engineer or like mechanical things...this is for you. What they built and when they built it, is amazing on its own.

This is a lovely lake that offers some killer fishing (if you know where to go). Even if you don't fish, it's a beautiful sight to uphold, especially since it's man made.

This beautiful reservoir is an ideal place to enjoy a picnic, kayak, boating, fishing or just enjoying the scenery. Stop at the Bill Cody Dam and see the short film of the trails and tribulations of the construction of the dam and the resulting reservoir. Hint: go in the morning as the sun will be your friend. There are comfort... More

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.
