This cabin, completed in 2005, is nestled in a cozy little basin in the Wapiti Valley not far from the North Fork of the Shoshone River. From the cabin, one can embark in any one of several directions for all the fun anyone could possibly have in this part of the country. The Lazy J offers spectacular scenery and unparalleled recreational activities.
At the Lazy J, privacy is the order of the day (and night)! 40 acres and all enclosed in fence with two corrals. One circular corral and another separated for two horses. Thereâ€™s also a camper dump station and out-door water/electricity hook-up.
Enter the cabin into the front room with real wood floor and a rocky (to the cathedral ceiling) gas fireplace. A very practical kitchenette with mini refrigerator/stove adjoins the front room. The cabin also features an old-fashioned front porch with wrap-around deck. A great resting place at the end of a long day!
There is one bathroom and three bedrooms. Two are on the ground level and one of these has a washer and dryer. A large loft bedroom provides ample sleeping room.
Yellowstone National Park, the worldâ€™s first “national park” is just down the road about 35 miles. Wapiti Valley is home to one of the oldest Forest Service ranger stations in the country. Cody, Wyoming, (named after Buffalo Bill Cody) is about 12 miles east on US RTS. 14, 16 & 20.Â Upon entering Cody from the west, visit Buffalo Bill State Park and enjoy its reservoir and dam.
Superb hunting and fishing, hiking and horseback riding are all near by! Rafting on the Shoshone River is always great fun. Near Cody, you can even go out looking for wild Mustang herds!
Oh! How about a Rodeo? A rodeo is held every night, June through August, in Cody, Rodeo Capital of the World! While in Cody, a must-see are the 4 galleries of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center; Americaâ€™s finest Western Heritage Museum!
Grand Teton National Park and the worlds largest hot springs at Thermopolis are not far away. While in Thermopolis, you have to see the world-class Dinosaur Museum. The Wyoming Dinosaur Centerâ€™s website is www.wyodino.org and their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glacier National Park and Mt. Rushmore are well within striking distance, too!
