    Welcome to the Town of Basin website! Incorporated in 1902, Basin is 60 miles east of Cody, WY and 110 miles from Yellowstone National Park's east entrance.  A short drive east will put you in the Big Horn Mountains in 25 miles. We are at the heart of the Big Horn Basin and all that it has to offer.

    The Town of Basin was founded in 1896 by Winfield Collins and named for the Bighorn Basin. In 1897, it became the county seat, following a raging fight for that designation between Otto, Basin and Cody. Basin was known as Basin City until it was incorporated in 1902 and City was dropped from the name. Basin is often called the “Lilac City” and hosts an annual Lilac Days Celebration in June and is the host for the Big Horn County Fair each August.
