Lake DeSmet

First Employee   Feb 09, 2024

Lake DeSmet is located just off the interstate between Sheridan and Buffalo, Wy. It is named after Father Jean DeSmet. He was the first Catholic priest in the region and a monument honoring him is on the north side of the lake. This monument also marks the way to our favorite place to dive on the lake. The lake has a gentle sloping shale bottom, making a great place for novice divers and advanced divers alike.
