Born in 1945 in Port Chester, New York, Lopez grew up in Southern California and New York City and received his bachelorís degree at the University of Notre Dame. He moved to Eugene, Oregon in 1968 to pursue graduate studies at the University of Oregon, and has continued to live in Oregon since. In 2001, Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, acquired Barry Lopez's manuscripts, correspondence, notebooks, and other archival materials to found the James E. Sowell Family Collection in Literature, Community, and the Natural World. The papers of other writers have since been added.

Most recently he has been working on a program between TTU and the Comanche Nation College in Lawton, Oklahoma to foster education and the preservation of cultural lore.
