Description

Buffalo Bill State Park is home to a tremendous amount of history, most of it centered around Colonel William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Buffalo Bill was a famed wild west showman in addition to being a soldier and land developer. 

Initially coming to these parts in the 1870s working as a guide, Bill ended up spending over 20 years here exploring the terrain and leading hunting parties around. Cody played an important part in bringing development to the area and founding the town that this park resides in. He even contributed some of the lands that comprise the park's 3000 acres! 

The original park was adjacent to a dam built in the area but was purposefully flooded in 1993 for expansion. Surprisingly, this ended up being a boon to the park, as the US government paid for all refurbishment costs while installing additional upgrades.

Fishing is wildly popular here, with three different creeks full of wildlife throughout the warmer months. You will need to be licensed, and you can get one from the Game & Fish Department offices. Complete information regarding the fishing limits on these bodies of water is located on the Wyoming State Parks website. 

Canines are allowed on the creek shorelines, provided they are on their leashes at all times. You should be aware that dogs are not allowed to swim in these fishing areas. There are 37 campsites available at the park's North Shore Campground, all of which can be found on the Wyoming State Parks Website. 

Keep in mind that the North Shore Campground is immediately adjacent to the boat ramp, so these sites are more for overnight fishers and hikers. Dogs are not allowed on these campgrounds. If you are planning to bring a family or group, the North Fork Campground is much better suited. 

There are children's facilities here as well as a small doggie bathroom area. Full showers and restrooms are also available here for a nominal fee, but keep in mind that canines are not allowed into any indoor structures. Enjoy nature and relax at the Buffalo Bill State Park this weekend.
