Perched above Bighorn Lake, it's a breathtaking 1,000 feet drop into Devils Canyon below. Out of Lovell, Wyoming, on Route 37, this overlook takes in the southern section of a 70 mile long body of water. The Bighorn Canyon NRA was developed around the Bighorn River soon after completion of Montana's Yellowtail Dam. The dam, named for famous leader of the Crow Nation, Robert Yellowtail, created a lake where rainfall averages no more than 10 inches a year. The high desert land surrounds the Bighorn and Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. In 1968, a 39,000 acre refuge was established to protect free roaming horses, descendants of Spanish origin. The Bighorn Canyon area is filled with majestic splendor, intriguing wildlife and miles of world class trout fishing opportunities.
