Create an itinerary including Old Trail Town
See what the stomping grounds of Buffalo Bill Cody and Gen. Custer looked like at Old Trail Town, a reconstructed Old West setting. Although it appears the area was suddenly abandoned, the town was carefully constructed in the 1960s using antique materials collected from the region. Visit the memorial to legendary mountain man Liver-Eating Johnson, and explore the log cabin that belonged to Curly, a Crow Native American scout. Explore the other cabinlike buildings, which are decorated with artifacts to resemble town staples, such as a general store, living quarters, and a school room. A small fee gets you access to the grounds for a self-guided. Arrange your visit to Old Trail Town and discover more family-friendly attractions in Cody using our Cody journey planner.

  • A small glimpse of what it was like in Wyoming west.
  • Cool ghost town setting. Pretty cool how they set up the cabins and stores. Reminds me of how easy we have it now days. Harsh life back then.
