4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Buffalo Bill Dam was the tallest in the world when it was finished in 1910. Walk to the top of the concrete arch-gravity dam named after Wild West showman William "Buffalo Bill" Cody. At the visitor center, you can watch a short film, take a self-guided audio tour, and explore the black-and-white photos of the dam's early construction. You'll discover what makes the dam sturdy and view the waters--which supply more than 37,635 hectares (93,000 acres) of farmland--from the top. If you don't feel like walking from the parking lot to the visitor center, there's a complimentary shuttle service. Our Cody vacation route planner makes visiting Buffalo Bill Dam and other Cody attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
