Dubois Travel Guide

Less than an hour from Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, Dubois draws visitors to the Wind River Valley for the incredible vistas and rich variety of things to do. Follow in the footsteps of frontiersmen on a journey through the rugged wilderness by tackling terrain via four-wheelers, kayaking on the Wind River, horseback riding, mountain biking and more. Those who prefer more relaxing pursuits will most likely not mind playing golf with backdrops of expansive plains and mountains. Of course, there is plenty of history, art, and cultural heritage to explore as well as hearty steaks, fried fish and other delicious food. Whatever is on the agenda, a trip to Wyoming will definitely be worth the while.

Things to Do in Dubois

Taking in the scenery ranks high when visiting these parts. For starters, a low-key way to get the lay of the land is to head to the town park and Scenic Overlook. Get ready for an impressive vantage point with views of Lava Mountain, Ramshorn Peak and the Owl Mountains in plain sight. Active types have Shoshone National Forest as their playground whether fishing in the Brooks Lake area or trekking up Bonneville Pass, while animal lovers will probably find the National Bighorn Sheep Center quite fascinating with guided wildlife tours and enriching exhibits. Another avenue of exploration is to take a trip to The Dubois Museum, known for its collection of artifacts, or plan a self-guided walking tour of the downtown area to view historical sites such as Welty’s General Store (which Butch Cassidy was known to frequent) and the legendary Cowboy Cafe, which first opened for business back in 1939.

Best Time to Visit Dubois

Warm summers and freezing winters entice visitors to visit year-round depending on what they want to do. Late June through the end of September is a particularly pleasant time and ideal for spending a day of fishing out on the water. It's no secret that the the colder months bring snow, making for the perfect conditions for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
