Exits 70 & 76
Oakley area offers several attractions that are worth seeing time and time again. The Buffalo Bill Cultural Center tells the story of William F. Cody and the legendary hunt that took place near Oakley that won Cody his infamous title of Buffalo Bill. The twice life-sized bronze statue of Buffalo Bill on his horse Brigham aiming at a buffalo is truly magnificent. Monument Rocks, geologic remnants of the ancient ocean that once covered the region, are an excellent place to find fossils of ancient sea-creatures. Many fossils and other artifacts are on display at the Fick Fossil and History Museum and the Keystone Gallery.
