MANAGEMENT: Our manager is Margie. She can be reached by calling 307-587-2331. Showings are performed after you make an appointment with her.
GENERAL INFO: Rivers Bend is a 36-unit community located on 5 wooded acres along the Shoshone River. Deer graze on the property each night and the river next to the park has earned the highest rating for fishing: Blue Ribbon 5. One, two and three bedroom units are offered. The rental dwellings include 12 singlewide trailers (600-1280 square feet), 7 log cabins (280-992 square feet) and one doublewide trailer (1430 square feet). Ten tenant-owned singlewide trailers are also on the property on rented lots. The community also offers rental storage space for tenants.
AMENITIES: Rivers Bend has laundry facilities, childrens playground, several storage buildings, large park-like common areas, multiple picnic tables and is located along the heavily-wooded Shoshone River conveniently located in north Cody city limits. Deer graze on the property daily. Tenants enjoy a five acre wooded nature trail next to Rivers Bend that provides peaceful pathways through the woods and along the river. Rivers Bend residents can also access the city's two-mile paved riverwalk trail located just across the river from the Rivers Bend community. This trail follows the other bank of the Shoshone River. Both trails provide opportunities to see deer, beavers, bald eagles and on rare occasions, moose or black bear.
PETS: We love dogs and cats but unfortunately, they don't always treat our dwellings with equal love so we are selective about what pets we allow. We will consider accepting your dog if it is well-trained, does not bark, is spayed or nuetered and lives inside. This consideration is for long-time house dogs only. No puppies. We also might approve your cat if it is spayed or nuetered and stays inside. Dogs and cats require an additional $300 deposit. If you want an animal companion that does not require an additional deposit, we do allow fish, hamsters and birds.
LEASE: We require a minimum of a 12-month lease. We've found that this makes our community more stable and pleasant. We do enforce the lease however, so you must fulfill the term of the lease once you sign it. In the case of rare, unexpected emergencies that require you to break the lease, we might negotiate a settlement. This type of case is extremely rare and each case is decided at our sole discretion.
PRICING: Rivers Bend offers some of the lowest rents in the entire Cody area yet provides quality homes in the best rental location in Cody.

The application process includes a discussion with our park manager and completing a two-page application.
