Johnson County is home to some of the best and most diverse access to the Bighorn Mountains, with the small town of Buffalo nestled in the foothills at the junction of I-25 and I-90. A major attraction for locals and visitors alike who are up for adventure, striking panoramic views and rich Western history, Buffalo, Kaycee & all of Johnson County never fail to deliver.
Johnson County’s heritage is rich in agriculture, bolstered by the settling of the West, the rise of the cattle and sheep industries. The immigration of Basque sheepherders throughout the early 1900’s brought with it a culture that also helped shape our community.
Today, Buffalo is a hidden gem with a vibrant main street filled with fine art galleries, boutique shopping, family owned restaurants, and local retail stores offering all you need for a relaxing getaway or high country adventure. Experience a 4 star golf course, and a variety of unique lodging experiences from eclectic Airbnb options to cozy motels, hotels, RV parks and mountain campgrounds.
A drive up Hwy 16 West, otherwise known as the Cloud Peak Scenic Byway, takes visitors directly into the Bighorn Mountains and Bighorn National Forest. With 189,000 acres of wilderness and 1,500 miles of trails the Bighorns are a popular destination for both tourists and Wyoming natives.
Take a drive south to Kaycee, where you can take in a truly western community, home of country music artist Chris Ledoux. The area is complete with access to the Hole- in-the-Wall Country, home to the hideout of the infamous Hole-in-the- Wall Gang.
Welcome to Buffalo's community!
