Buffalo Jump RV Site

1 site 路 RV3 acres 路 Cody, WY
We are located just 50 miles from Yellowstone park! Please note, our property is not suitable for long-term rentals. 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 鈥淏uffalo Jump鈥. 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.

Southfork Retreat

1 site 路 RV5 acres 路 Cody, WY
We have lived here over two decades. Our modest 5-acre property is home to Ren茅e and Sean and our two dogs, two cats, and Maggie the horse. We live and work here full-time and absolutely love summers on the Southfork. We have 4 acres in hay and a huge garden. We both have workshops on the property and enjoy meeting and hosting travelers, since we spend so much time out here by ourselves. We don't yet have bathroom access set up for travelers, so we are offering only to self-contained campers and small RVs at this time. But we can provide electricity, wifi, potable water, and coffee with muffins in the morning. Learn more about this land: We are retired and require arrivals to be here before 10 PM. We can accommodate only self-contained camping vehicles up to 32ft. (This is important 鈥 larger vehicles will not be able to turn around).

We are a retired couple who want to share our stunning mountain views and rural property with travelers who share the Hipcamp values. Easy access to hiking, hunting, fishing, and biking. The elevation here is 5600ft. so even when days are warm and sunny 鈥 usually in the 80s 鈥 nights cool off into the 50s. You would be close to the house but screened by a grove of trees. We have 5 acres in a beautiful rural area.聽 We are a 20-minute drive from Cody, in a beautiful mountain valley. Our place is perfect for a night or two of respite from travel and tourist traffic.

The best camping near Buffalo Bill State Park guide

Overview

About

William 鈥淏uffalo Bill鈥 Cody is one of the most famous鈥攁nd colorful鈥攆igures in Wild West lore, and as a man who knew Wyoming like the back of his hand, it makes sense that he chose to settle on the prime real estate that is now Buffalo Bill State Park. Situated on the banks of the Shoshone river with sweeping views of the magnificent Absaroka range, most of the action happens on the water of the reservoir at its center. Boating and swimming are encouraged, but as far as water-centric activity, fishing is really where its at鈥攖hree types of wild trout are native to the area. Yellowstone in all its glory lies only 40 miles away, making Buffalo Bill State Park an excellent appetizer on the way to the grandaddy of all national parks鈥攐r a damn good dessert on your way out.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Buffalo Bill State Park is during the summer months, from June to September, when the weather is warm and the park is fully accessible. Winter can be harsh, with heavy snowfall limiting access to certain areas, making some activities less enjoyable.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your visit, as the park's weather can change rapidly.
  • Be aware of wildlife in the area; keep a safe distance and store food securely.
  • Some areas may be closed due to seasonal changes or conservation efforts; check for updates.
  • Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for hiking and exploring the diverse terrain.
  • Facilities may vary throughout the park; plan accordingly for picnics and restroom needs.
