Many of our guests enjoy staying at their cabin to relax. There is also so much to do, right outside your cabin door on foot or during a beautiful drive. Guests can take a short walk or drive to the host’s property down the hill for fishing on a private stretch of the South Fork Shoshone river. In addition to that, the following are our suggestions for other things to do in the area:
- 30 minute drive to historic downtown Cody, Wyoming.
- Buffalo Bill Center of the West - open year round
- Old Trail Town - late May through September
- Buffalo Bill Dam visitor center - May through September
- Cody Trolley Tours - May through September
- Farmers Market every Thursday and Saturday
- Cafes and restaurants:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
A visit to Cody often includes a trip into Yellowstone Park. There are two ways to get there from Cody:
The East gate is 53 miles from Cody (76 miles from South Fork Mountain Retreat) and follows the North Fork of the Shoshone River. This is a beautiful drive that can include a stop at Pahaska Tepee, Buffalo Bill's historic 1904 hunting lodge and cafe.
The Northeast gate is 99 miles from Cody via the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway (129 miles from South Fork Mountain Retreat). After the jaw dropping views of the Sunlight Basin you will pass through Cooke City, a charming tiny mountain town where you can stop for refreshments.
The park itself is vast and can take several days to see fully. We encourage visitors to consult the Yellowstone National Park website to plan your trip.
