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 17 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. Rents range from $475 - $995 per month and security deposits range $400 - $750. The average rent in the park is about $595. The average security deposit is $450.
UTILITIES: Utilities are based on your usage and are payable in addition to rent.

APPLICATION PROCESS: We must protect our investment and the well-being of our current tenants, so not just anyone can live here. Applicants must undergo a screening process to verify they have no drug, crime or serious credit problems and will be a good neighbor to the rest of our tenants. If you are approved as a tenant, this process will make you feel secure that your new community will remain pleasant for you. The application process includes a discussion with our park manager and completing a two-page application. The application includes asking your permission to conduct a background criminal investigation, credit check and your authorization for us to speak to your past landlords and current references. This process is usually conducted within 48 hours of our receipt of your completed application.
