“Worth seeing once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Worth the stop. The Dam offers a short golf cart ride to the front entrance, although when we went it was pretty dead. Small, but a nice educational visitor center on local animals and the different equipment used in building the Dam. May be windy at times, so bring a coat.

“Great Stop While In Cody”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Buffalo Bill Dam is just a few minutes outside of Cody. It is a great place to stop and take pictures. The visitor center is filled with lots of fun information and the people work/volunteering there are always very helpful. You get to walk out on the dam which is a lot of fun. During the summer months they usually have a person driving a golf cart back and forth from the parking area up the visitors center.
