Buffalo Bill Dam

Saves: 17
Check-ins: 7
This concrete-arch gravity dam rises high above the Shoshone River. It is built into the Pre-Cambrian granite rock on either side of the dam, a feat of engineering as well as a spectacular sight to behold. The name honors the man who founded the nearby town, Cody. At the time it was built in 1905 it was the tallest dam in the world, ascending 325 feet high. It is open to visitors in August and September from 9-6 on weekdays and 9-5 on weekends.
