Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails, in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, is seeking public comment on an integrated Resource Management Plan and Environmental Assessment (RMP/EA) for Buffalo Bill Reservoir and State Park.


The plan outlines potential recreation improvements and other management actions at the reservoirs, which Reclamation owns and manages in terms of operations and which Wyoming State Parks manages in terms of recreation.

The draft RMP/EA describes the needs and opportunities; public issues and concerns; goals and objectives; and specific management objectives and the proposed action at the Reservoir. Because the reservoir is federally owned and managed, proposed recreation improvements are required to be disclosed and analyzed under the National Environmental Policy Act. The draft RMP/EA also summarizes the public process and identifies potential environmental effects.
Specific and substantial comments received on the RMP/EA during the comment period will be analyzed and responded to by Reclamation. Comments received will help decision makers determine whether to issue a Finding of No Significant Impact. Comments on the draft RMP/EA should be specific and should address the adequacy of the statement and the merits of the alternatives discussed (40 CFR 1503.3).
The RMP/EA is available below.

The public can learn more and provide written comments on the draft RMP/EA at open houses scheduled at the following locations and times:

  • Tues., May 28, 2024, 4pm – 7pm, Shreve Lodge, 45 Lakeside Road, Cody, WY 82414
  • Wed., May 29, 2024, 11am – 1pm, Cody Library – Grizzly Room, 1500 Heart Mountain Street,Cody, WY 82414


Online comment form on the RMP/EA will be accepted in writing during the public comment period through June 10, 2024 and can be provided online via the Comment Form or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or by mail to:
