Known as outlaw country, the small town of Kaycee, Wyoming, is rich in Western history.
Step into the Hoofprints of the Past Museum to learn about Native Americans, trappers, pioneers, outlaws of the Wild West and a number of battles that took place in the area. A 20-mile drive southwest will lead you to Outlaw Cave Campground, a remote area with deep, red-walled canyons, two caves and a corral that robbers once used to store loot. It’s no surprise this location was a favorite hiding spot for Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch Gang. Not too far from here you can find Hole-in-the-Wall, another famous outlaw hideout that is now part of Willow Creek Ranch. Home to more current cowboys as well, Kaycee was also the birthplace of rodeo champion and country singing sensation Chris LeDoux. You can find a park downtown named in his honor. Once you’ve paid homage to the area’s cowboys, cast a line in one of Kaycee’s lakes, reservoirs or streams to experience Wyoming trout fishing with stunning views of the Bighorn Mountains.
