What can you do at Bill Cody Ranch?

We're glad you asked! We want you to feel at home when you visit. Feel free to explore, relax in the lodge, visit with the horses, play a round of horseshoes, or chat with the other guests around the campfire. Here's a little information about some of the different activities we like to do.

Horseback Rides

Chances are, even if you are just passing through, you will find time for a horseback ride through the Shoshone National Forest. Our horses are friendly, and they take first-timers everyday. Trail rides are open to guests and to the public. For guests younger than six year of age, we offer guided pony rides. You can visit our horseback riding page for more information.

Dining and Bar 

Come eat breakfast with us from 7am to 9am in the main lodge. Dinner is served in the evenings from 6pm to 8pm. If you are joining us on a Wednesday or Saturday night, plan on an outdoor barbeque. All dining is open to our guests and to the public. Our Saddlesore Saloon is open in the evenings and whenever you ask.

Bill Cody Restaurant

If you arrange an all-inclusive package, meals are already included. You can see our menus here. A cookout lunch is included on our four hour and all day horseback rides. If you are going into the park or are planning a hike, we can pack a lunch for you.


S'moresEvening Campfire

Don't think that we could have a campfire without s'mores! Roast marshmallows with us or just enjoy the company. The wranglers prepare a campfire every night starting around 7:30pm. Help yourself to marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate!




Kids (and adults) can show off  their roping skills on our dummy steers.  Challenge one of our wranglers any evening! 


Game Room and More

You and the kids can use our small game room when you just want to relax. The room has a ping pong table, foosball, and air hockey. Outside of the game room, families can play horseshoes or just relax on the porch. We also have all kinds of board games available in the main lodge. 




There is plenty of blue ribbon water in the area that makes for some of the best fishing in North America. The Shoshone River flows along the Yellowstone Highway directly past the ranch. Depending on the season, different parts of the Shoshone River are open for fishing. If you want to fish on your own, you can purchase a fishing license at a nearby convenience store or online at through the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. We have some fishing equipment available in the lodge. For guided fishing trips, we recommend the North Fork Anglers
