Dubois, Wyoming is a small town that is very big on attractions. First of all, it’s only 55 miles to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. It is said that if you “draw an 80-mile circle around Dubois,” here’s what you’ll find - two national parks, over five million acres of publicly owned land, Gannett Peak, which is Wyoming’s highest peak at 13,804 feet, seven of the largest glaciers in the Rocky Mountains, 53 peaks above 13,000 feet, 626 lakes, 2,057 miles of rivers and streams and 200 miles of the Continental Divide. Now, that’s impressive!

Dubois is situated in Wyoming’s Wind River Range, which was chosen as a “Top Ten Adventure Destination” by National Geographic Adventure Magazine. Trout fishing is extremely popular in Dubois along the Wind River, which is designated a “Blue Ribbon Trout Stream.” Whether in a secluded mountain stream or a high mountain lake, Dubois is a fisherman’s dream. Non-resident fishing licenses may be obtained at various locations around Dubois and public access to the Wind River is provided by several locations along the highway. Camping is also popular in the Wind River district of the Shoshone National Forest near Dubois. Three large campgrounds are found along U.S. Highways 26 and 287. For those who enjoy hunting, the region offers numerous big game opportunities. Antelope, white tail and mule deer, elk, moose, bear and bighorn sheep are all found in the surrounding wilderness areas. In fact, the Whiskey Mountain area, just outside Dubois, is home to the largest bighorn sheep population in North America. Other outdoor activities in the Dubois area include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, dogsledding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Dubois offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country during the winter months. Last, but not least, a beautiful 18-hole golf course is located in the beautiful hills of the Badlands, just west of Dubois. This course offers spectacular views of the Wind River Range and the snow-capped Absaroka Mountains. Experiencing the adventures of a Wyoming guest “dude” ranch is another big attraction to the Dubois area and more on this subject can be found under this web sites’ “Hotels” section.

Historic downtown Dubois is an attraction in itself. The wooden boardwalks and false front buildings give it an authentic Old West feel and you’ll want to take your time to browse through the town’s eclectic shops, galleries and saloons. Dubois is home to the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, which offers exhibitions and hands-on displays. Guided tours to the Bighorns’ winter range are offered by reservation, 24 hours in advance. The Dubois Museum pays tribute to the town’s early days with restored historic cabins, a large collection of Tie hack tools (ties used for the nation’s railroads,) and a diorama and history of the Sheep Eater Indians (Mountain Shoshone.) Other attractions in the town of Dubois include the Tie Hack Memorial and the Wind River Valley Artist Guild, which houses the Guild’s permanent art collection.
