Old Trail Town, Cody

(650+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • for the price, it was good - we wanted to do something simple and interesting on our "rest day" during a two week trip and this fit pretty well. our 7 and 10 year old daughters liked all the rabbits i...  more »
  • If the walls of the old log cabins in Old Trail Town could talk, they would speak of so much of America's history. It was so much fun to know that I stood in the same place as Butch Cassidy, Sundance ...  more »
  • We were directed to this place by The Visitor's Center. The place is ok but it needs someone with a marketing background to better serve guests. The displays are dirty and hard to read the description...  more »

  • I definitely recommend this place. We were traveling from Yellowstone's east gate and wanted something fun to do in Cody. We had seen this place from the road and decided to check it out. The price was reasonable and they gave us a military discount. The pictures at this place all but take themselves. It's so easy to take pictures you'll love to have for years. Not only is the town picturesque, but you have the opportunity to learn so much about the real old west. It made me love Wyoming even more than I already do!
  • Fun to visit! Took lots pics. Also study lots of Cody history! Worth to visit for family.
  • Visiting from Colorado. Excellent job was done here. Really felt like we went back in time. Absolute must see!!
  • It is perfect for photos and a great place to visit if you like old western and westerns,it's just like in old western movies and shows ,it is amazing!
  • Pretty cool old buildings. Could take it or leave it...
