Amazing to see how this dam was wedged into the river valley and how it feeds so many different things - irrigation, water, etc. All this at a time before modern construction technology. Worth stopping and taking a look.

If you travel from Yellowstone toward Cody you will pass this dam. It is certainly worth a stop and shouldn't take you too long even if you go through the visitor center. It is scenic and was an engineering marvel of the day. Go visit!

This place is a wonderful stop with beautiful views, information and bathrooms! My dad took them up on the free shuttle ride from the parking lot too. Worth every minute! Well, it was free but definitely worth the stop!

This was very interesting. I usually do not enjoy this sort of thing, but this was fascinating to us! Men built this by hand, basically without equipment!! Amazing!

The Buffalo Bill Dam is beautiful in the morning sunlight! There were some interesting facts at the parking area. Was wondering though where the actual visitor center was. Maybe we missed it.

During the summer months, there is a trolley tour that goes to the Dam. It travels a set route around the city.
