Information on:

Buffalo Bill Ranch State Recreation Area

2921 Scouts Rest Ranch Rd


Part of Buffalo Bill State Historical Park, this state recreation area offers camping pads with electricity, primitive sites and a group picnic shelter.


Buffalo Bill State Recreation Area is located next door to the Historical Park, which makes it easy to tour the ranch house and barn that Col. William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody built for his home in North Platte during the heyday of his famous Wild West Show. Cody owned some 4,000 acres here, which were appropriately named Scout's Rest Ranch. The park encompasses 25 acres of the original ranch, including the house and barn.
