Recreational Opportunities

Cody, the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park, is a historic town situated in the Big Horn Basin below the Absaroka Mountain Range. The town named after “Buffalo Bill” Cody has an estimated population of 9,500. Because of its location and ability to draw tourist it has a wide variety of amenities not always available in a place with such a small hometown feel. Some of the amenities include a 18 hole golf course, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, a world class recreation center (indoor track, indoor pools, racquetball courts, basketball courts, gym, etc.) a ice arena, a nightly rodeo in the summer, great schools, excellent hospital and medical facilities and commercial air service. Both United and Delta offer daily commercial air service to Salt Lake and Denver making it an easy place to get to year round. Cody also offers some of the best dining and shopping in Wyoming. If you can’t find it in this small town there is a good chance you probably don’t need it.

Broker Comments

The Tombstone Ranch is a stunning South Fork legacy property located at the base of Carter Mountain overlooking the greater Yellowstone area. A year around stream, high mountain reservoirs, and the irrigation district canal provide abundant water to pivot irrigation covering over 280 +/- acres of the 1,538+/- spread. The three homes, two machine shops, two hay barns, cross fencing, and show barn with paddocks make this ideal for equestrian or registered stock. This is a must see to believe estate with a resident elk herd, year around live water, and incredible rock formations.
