4th night out and first with electricity — Buffalo Bill State Park, near Cody, Wyoming


This is our first night with electricity–mainly to give us the opportunity to download hundreds of pictures, answer a few dozen e-mails, recharge cell phones and write a post or two.

We stopped at the Buffalo Bill State Park nine miles west of Cody, Wyoming, on US Highway 14-16-20. “The park was established in 1957 and provided recreational areas and facilities. Today it is a beautiful, mountainous expanse with the Shoshone Canyon, Logan Mountain and the north and south forks of the Shoshone River all housed in this stunning area.” ($22 for non-resident, water/electricity)

It is a little pricy for us. However, thanks to the incredible Guide to Free Campgrounds 14th edition , we have so far discovered three small dispersed forest service campgrounds tucked along pristine rivers and streams in the high mountains of Montana. Camping fees, because of the Senior Access Pass, have been $0, $3.50, and $3.50.

We’ve also met more incredible RVers and tent campers who are traveling our nation’s back roads and will write more about them as time and electricity permits.
