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.

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.
