Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area is a little-known gem located in northern Wyoming and extending through the southern border of Montana. It was established in 1966 after construction of the Yellowtail Dam, which transformed the previously almost impassible Bighorn River into a lake that runs 71 miles south through majestic Bighorn Canyon. The south entrance is located about 10 miles northeast of Lovell, Wyoming, on Highway 37, which is the only road that services the canyon on the south side. Several campgrounds are open year-round.
