Old Trail Town, Cody

(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
See what the stomping grounds of Buffalo Bill Cody and Gen. Custer looked like at Old Trail Town, a reconstructed Old West setting. Although it appears the area was suddenly abandoned, the town was carefully constructed in the 1960s using antique materials collected from the region. Visit the memorial to legendary mountain man Liver-Eating Johnson, and explore the log cabin that belonged to Curly, a Crow Native American scout. Explore the other cabinlike buildings, which are decorated with artifacts to resemble town staples, such as a general store, living quarters, and a school room. A small fee gets you access to the grounds for a self-guided. Old Trail Town is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Cody Edition.

  • Well worth a trip. An interesting trip back in time with so much history. Another world, another century. 
  • We absolutely loved this glance into a part of our heritage. They have relocated old western homes, businesses, school, and even a livery stable and built a western town like you would have seen 150 y...  more »
  • Well, there are just a few houses (it is much less impressive than Body but not bad anyway)

  • I was afraid this was going to be a tourist trap, but no, my worries were unfounded. It is authentic, and real deal. Well worth the time and admission price.
  • Lots of great history. Love the old town and all the artifacts from the time period.
  • Nice to see if came earlier back from YNP. Would be much better if it would be better organized inside of some houses, as they looked like a damp location.
  • Had a wonderful time , worth the stop !
  • A must-visit location if you have any interest in the old Wild West. This outdoor museum holds a collection of buildings that played roles in the story of the west. Well worth your time and money to stop and see.
