Would any Cody locals know of any ideal locations for dirtbag car camping in the Cody area?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

the area just south of Buffalo Bill reservoir (outside the state park) is BLM land, no established campsites but you can find flat spots, I've had nice evening over there. a bit closer to town, maybe 20 mins

Mike,
You can camp on Cedar mountain, right on the edge of town. Closer to both the climbing and town. When will you be around? Hit me up and we'll go climbing.
