You can spend an interesting 1 or 2 hours here. It is a collection of historic buildings (mainly simple wooden ones) some of which have connections with wild west icons of the past. The hideout of the Sundance Kid and a bar where he and...More

It’s hard to believe that almost everything here is a century old. Building after building has western history oozing out of the doors and windows. There’s mountain men cabins, a school, a store and of course a saloon. The Hole in the Wall cabin was...More

Our family, including two teenage boys absolutely loved this historical ghost town and final resting place of such big names from our country's history. Terrific learning experience and adventure!

We stayed in Cody while visiting Yellowstone Park. We passed the Old Trail Town while heading back to the park, and decided to pay it a visit first. We arrived early, and had to wait for the gate to open. We were the only ones...More

We visited on our way to the Rodeo stadium which is a few hundred yards away and we are glad we stopped here, there’s lots to see and some really historic buildings and exhibits there too. Worth the modest entrance fee.

A good family experience for a family. Kids would enjoy seeing what things looked like back in the Wild West. Enjoyed the grave sites and the history of those people.

You can go into a lot of the cabins and the old saloon. Some cabins were roped off/doors locked. But, I don’t remember being disappointed by that as there are plenty that are open for you to explore.

No, there is a fee, but you pay inside the old western store (first building). There is no official wrist band or entrance. I think it was $8 each, but I'm not positive.

South Pass City/Old Trail Town (6 Replies)
Has anyone done both South Pass City south of Lander and Old Trail Town by Cody? I'm wondering which to do. I am only going to be in Cody for 2 days and plan to do the Buffalo Bill museum but don't want to miss out on the better recreation of an old town. Thanks.

If it helps, you can do Old Trail Town in less than 90 minutes. And,the only reason we enjoyed it as much as we did was because we could take our time and play with the settings on the camera(s).

Old Trail Town - how long does it take? (1 Replies)
How long does it take to visit Old Town Trail and grave of Buffalo Bill? I've planned my visit for 3 hours. Is it enough or should I spent more time there?

Response fromWYn0t|
You can see most of Trail Town in an hour, but if you enjoy looking at the small artifacts you could spend longer. It is a great place for photos too! Cody's grave is outside of Denver, Colorado, not in the town of Cody.

Cody Trip Report (2 Replies)
I finally made time to finish my trip report on the part of our trip (last month) that we spent in Cody. We really enjoyed the town of Cody and had a nice, relaxing time. Actually, we relaxed more than we had planned to, giving up some of the things on our schedule (horseback riding and Wild Mustang tour). The first part of our trip in Yellowstone was so packed full, that by the time we got to Cody we were ready to just chill out for a couple of days. And that we did! I'm going to post...More
