Named for the KC Ranch, Kaycee is a small town in the southern portion of Johnson County. Kaycee's biggest claim to fame may be the role the location played during the Johnson County War. Today, the Heritage Museum in Kaycee preserves a lot of the area's cattle ranching heritage, especially elements that relate to that famous range war.

Former rodeo champion and western music star Chris LeDoux lived on a ranch near Kaycee for many years before he died in 2005.

The famous Hole-in-the-Wall area (longtime hideout of Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid and the Wild Bunch) is just southwest of Kaycee in the southern reaches of the Bighorn Mountains. Hole-in-the-Wall countryside ranges from wide open rolling rangeland to red rock buttes and steep-sided red-walled canyons.
