The Crown Jewel of the US National Parks!  Volcanos, geysers, buffalo, wolves, bears, waterfalls, lakes, camping and ???  If it belongs in the wilderness, you will find it here.  This is why you came here, right?  We are fortunate to live here and very happy you came to Yellowstone and Cody, Wyoming!  Here at Wapiti Valley Cabins, you are in the heart of Yellowstone Country.

Welcome to the WILD WEST!!!  Cody is Rodeo and the Rodeo Capital of the World!  Every night from June 1st - August 31st, Rain or Shine.  Come and watch how we do it in the west!  Bull riding, barrel racing, bulldogging.  AND We have the professionals come to town on June 30th for the professional bull riders and then July 1-4 for the PRCA as they compete for the biggest outdoor rodeo purse in the nation.

Welcome to the Smithsonian of western culture.  Meet Buffalo Bill, or at least how he lived, plains indian museum, the most complete gun collection in the world, museum of natural history, western art collection by artists like Remington, Russell and Bama.  This is a huge museum and your entrance price is good for two days!  There is too much to see in a day.  We are very proud of this museum and the collections contained inside.  


OK, so Colorado holds the body of our namesake, Buffalo Bill, but we do have Jeremiah Johnson!  This is a unique old town that is set on the original Cody townsite.  The authentic cabins are from the wild west.  Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid's hole in the wall cabin sits here along with Curly's cabin (George Custer's Scout).  This is a must see attraction.  See how they lived in the old west.  We are proud of our western heritage and history and we want to share it with you!


The Buffalo Bill dam is an amazing achievement for the architects who needed to bring water to the dry lands of Cody Wyoming.  The history here and the amazing undertaking by these brave men who built the dam are recorded in the museum.  Explore the roar when the dam is in full release in the spring and the endless rainbow that covers the canyon when the water is pouring through the spillway.  Explore the Buffalo Bill reservoir while you are there.  This is the lifeblood of Cody and the Bighorn Basin.  Water is a commodity here and we are thankful for those who brought us the gift of water.  The reservoir is our boating, fishing, waterskiing, swimming, and watersport mecca.  Come join us on the water if you dare, it's a little on the cool side because if flows from the mountain streams but it feels good when it's hot!


Mustangs!  Wild horses of the Spanish Conquistadors!  We have them just outside of Cody.  Wild and colorful.  They are a legacy of the wild west and we are in love with our horses here!  Come visit the local herd but keep your distance.  They are as wild as the other wildlife in the area and they can be dangerous if intruded on.  This is a fun drive if you have a little time on your hands and have that horse lover in your group.

White water rafting at it's best!  We know how to have fun and get your heart pumping.  Clear mountain rivers with that splash of excitement with an experienced group of guides that are unmatched anywhere!  Get an adrenaline rush on the rapids and experience the beauty of our area as you drift down the Shoshone river where the plains indians called a truce in the healing waters.  You'll be glad you did!


Ski in the Winter and zipline in the summer!  We have a mountain of fun between Yellowstone and Wapiti Valley Vacation Rentals near the East Entrance.  Come and get your blood running again!  It may not be the longest zipline in the world but it is the most beautiful just outside of Yellowstone's East Gate.  You might even see a bear, moose or some elk from the line.  Have a blast and breathe some clean mountain air.


The Beartooth Highway is one of the most beautiful drives you will ever take in the United States.  The mountain lakes, alpine flowers, Mountain Goats, Mountain Peaks and other features are unmatched anywhere.  The road is narrow and full of hairpin turns but you will be glad you made this trip.  From the Northeast entrance to Red Lodge Montana, this is an extraordinary sightseeing and photographic journey that will leave you breathless.  From Red Lodge, you are only 1 1/2 hours from Wapiti Valley Cabins.  Plan a full day and Enjoy!

He's been around the rodeo arena for many years but he and his band call Cody home.  They visit Larry's CountryDiner on RFDTV quite often but we have them every night in the summer playing cowboy music for the crowds.  They are downtown every night.  Get your tickets and some dinner at the Irma in a package that will keep you full and entertained.
