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.
Buffalo Bill State Recreation Area is a convenient stop off of I-80 at the North Platte Interchange. The recreation area offers fishing, picnic tables, fire rings, and hiking trails.
