As its Indian name implies, The Wapiti Valley is home for the wapiti, or elk as well as the grizzly bear, bighorn sheep, moose, deer, and other wildlife.

The Wapiti Valley is home to fourteen beautiful, historic lodges offering full-service accommodations, nightly or monthly. Any of these lodges may be used as home-base while touring all of Cody Country and enjoying Cody's many fine attractions.
