I called the lodge back in the winter when the lodge for closed for the season. A man whom I assumed was the owner told me it was closed and they were just doing the usual repairs getting ready for the upcoming spring and season. Very nice person on the phone. I specifically asked him about fishing and since we were not able to pack fishing poles on the airplane, he told me that all I needed was a license and he would have some poles we could use. My wife was sitting right beside me when I was speaking with him on the phone. Before checking in we drove past the lodge about 40 minutes into the town of Cody and spent about 50 dollars for our license. It was a special trip just for the licenses. Arrived at the lodge office where we registered and paid for the next days horseback ride. I asked the lady at the office, again I assume the owners wife, about the conversation I had with the gentleman about the fishing poles, she just sort of looked at us like there was no way we would have been told that, but we were. They had no poles for us to borrow. Anyway, started off with a WASTED $50, disappointed kids and that pretty much had my wife boiling, the cabin we had rented looked like it as by itself in the picture but there was actually another cabin wall to wall, you could not see the cabin that backed up to it in the pictures. The walls were literally paper thin. Had to listen to another couple cuss and yak until they went to sleep. Just what you need with kids. There was enough hot water for about one person to take a really quick shower so forget that there were three others in the room as well. lol. Horseback ride is basically up one side of a holllow and down the other, its the same scenery in and out. Breakfast eggs made wife sick to look at they were so runny. The horse guide was nice is about all I can say good about this place.. Stay clear, it was about the worst place we stayed on our 18 day vacation out west.
