In 2004 we purchased the acreage and soon discovered that it is located 1/2 mile from the Horner Buffalo Jump Archeological site. Thus our property, due to its steep terrain immediately took the name “Buffalo Jump”. With its many native trees and bushes the property became an ideal location for an artists studio, and since it had the RV site already in place, we soon had many friends and guests stopping by during the summer months. In 2020 we joined with hipcamp to make the RV site available to select campers. Far back in time the area was utilized by the first campers; Native Americans, who were here living off the land. Artifacts attest to the fact that the property and surrounding regions has been inhabited seasonally for the past ten thousand years.

Your Campsite In Cody
We were so appreciative of our host responding quickly to our last minute request, especially as he was away. There’s a steep hill to access the spot but once there it’s an absolute pleasure. We had no difficulty getting up the hill in our sprinter campervan. Communication was great and it’s clear that a lot of consideration has gone in to creating a comfortable place to be. We’d definitely stay again.

If you want a private neighborhood location with quick access to town, this is the place. This site is situated next to a highway but it gets pretty quiet at night so it wasn't any bother. Communication by our host was great...unfortunately we missed meeting Gerald in person and wished we could have enjoyed his artwork Thanks for sharing the space with us!

Above all is generosity was amazing. He was a very nice gentleman. He lead us in the right direction on our site seeing adventures. His campsite was easy to access with our Dodge Ram. Very peaceful and an easy setup. Would definitely stay again if ever out his way again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Buffalo Jump Campsite. Gerald was very accommodating, we enjoyed visiting with him and learning about the area. The location of the site was close to town (which there are many things to do in the area) and still give you time to relax. The driveway is a bit tricky, but once set up, the site is cozy and secluded. Thanks, Gerald, for offering your site. It was a pleasure meeting you. We stayed July 17-20, 2022.

A nice green private spot. City water, sewer and power! The host Gerald was a delight! He is a sculptor and I am a painter so it was great to talk about art. Cody was a short drive and Gerald recommended a nearby lake to take our dogs to swim. Steep drive, read trailer size restrictions! We will stay with Gerald again. Vickie and Don

We loved spending the night in our camper van. Very private setting. A deer walked through the site as we had dinner. Some road noise from a nearby highway, but not bothersome.

Gerald's site was awesome. Full hookups with a nice little outdoor patio and picnic table. The views were wonderful and Gerald was very nice, he came out to help us back in to the spot. I reccomend letting him know you're there before you pull up the drive way so he can help guide you in if he's there. The driveway is pretty steep with a sharp turn at the top to get lined up to back in.

The campsite was easy to find. It was clean and quiet. Gerald greeted us when we arrived. There were lilacs blooming and birds to watch. Gerald shared his passion for cars and sculptures with us.

I know you hear it all the time how nice the hosts are, and while the same is true here, Gerald & Donna are "off the charts" interesting people.

Great Stay
Buffalo Jump was a great place for us to spend a night on our cross country trip. Our truck and small trailer easily made it up the steep drive, and backing into the space worked well for us. The water and electric hook ups were convenient. A big dirt hill separates the RV spot from the traffic on the other side of it, and we had zero problems with the traffic sounds. Trees, a privacy fence section, and other landscaping add privacy from neighbors. Nice picnic table area well-lit with solar lighting.

Hillside retreat
Gerald was a great host! I really enjoyed chatting with him. He was welcoming and respectful of our space. The spot is wonderful and full of accommodations. We had a 5 point and an 8 point Buck right out the front door feasting on apples from the apple tree!(we followed suit) Little to no light pollution and plenty of stars. Cody is a really cool place with a lot of history. Would certainly recommend this place if your passing through one direction or another.

We were traveling with a toddler and were reluctant to stay in a regular campground, Gerald's site was perfect! Just what we needed for a base camp for a few days while we had some great day trips around the area. Gerald was incredibly welcoming and helpful. We'd definitely stay there again!

Excellent host and site.
Very comfortable and clean site with all the amenities. Well laid out. Gerald is such a great host and quick to communicate about anything. One tip for large trailers is the peak of the hill requires a wide swing to the left before you make the sharp turn so you have room to straighten out for the back in. Highly recommended!!!

A great site all to yourself.
This site worked great for us. On the edge of town, secluded area and very safe. Generally quiet ( Highway over the hill) but that didn’t cause a problem. As host states drive to site a bit tricky but way worth it once set up.

What an amazing place and fantastic host! Place was exactly as described! Nice flat spot, very clean, water, electric, dump, picnic table and lighting. Beautiful campsite and area that Gerald has created. Host is super friendly and gave us a lot of good tips for visiting Yellowstone and surrounding area. Host is great at communicating. Highly recommend this location! We hope to return!

Can't wait to come back!
This was our first time traveling to the Wyoming and we couldn't have done it without the kindness and hospitality Gerald showed us. Not only was Gerald an amazing host, he gave us a beautiful spot to camp with hookups. It was breathtaking to see his beautiful property with lush greenery and a beautiful creek running through. Gerald is such a kind and gracious host we couldn't recommend Buffalo Jump enough! We're only sad we were not there very long because we wanted to explore the town as there is so much to do! There is a buffalo bill museum, restaurants, shops and the historic Irma hotel. Gerald even recommended a lovely road to Yellowstone through Montana and it was just beautiful! We had such an amazing time, we can't wait to come back!

Great little spot outside of Cody. Worked perfect for us for a little late plan for Yellowstone. Lots of deer in the area for a nature retreat.

A great stay in Cody
We had a great stay at this convenient, comfortable and private location with all the RV necessities which was enriched by wonderful conversation with Gerald. If he has the time, see if he will take you on a tour of his studio. We felt very fortunate to see where he does his incredible sculptures—fascinating learning about this type of art. Gerald was able to meet us and help us back into the space which was just right for our 20 ft travel trailer. He shared helpful information on Yellowstone as well as other areas to visit nearby and knows a lot about the history of Cody and Wyoming. We loved our stay!

Great little hidden gem
Gerald was a very pleasant host, property was hidden away from everyone, had all the camper hook ups we needed, it was quiet, we had a great couple days there, wish we would have made longer reservations, will be looking to stay there again!

Lovely little nook
This was a great one-night stop over on the way to Yellowstone! After I found it and got up the driveway, it was a private little nook with lovely details (full hook ups, cute yard for the dog, picnic table, water feature, doe and fawn and lighting for ambiance). Gerald was VERY quick to respond and made sure I familiar with everything. Highly recommend!

We loved this spot! Thesite is great, well equipped (water, electricity, dump, light, picnic table), and stable. Gerald is very responsive and extremely helpful. We arrived in the dark at almost 11pm and Gerald was kind enough to help us find his place. Highly recommended!
