Why This One Little Town Is Wyoming’s Best Kept Secret
Wyoming is a state full of small towns – with it being the least populated state, that’s kind of a given. But not every small town in the Cowboy State is created equal – and there is one that truly stands out above the rest. While the tourists flock to Jackson and Cody, make some time to explore Wyoming’s best kept secret – Dubois.
Dubois is an idyllic town nestled between the Wind River and Absaroka mountains in Fremont County.
The Wind River makes Dubois a popular spot for rafting, boating, and all sorts of fishing. If you love being out on the water, you'll find likeminded folks here.
In the wintertime, the abundance of public land makes Dubois the perfect base camp for snowmobiling and skiing adventures.
Lava Mountain Lodge is just on the outskirts of town, and you'll find plenty of winter recreation options here.
You'll find 800,000 acres of wilderness surrounding Dubois in the Shoshone National Forest and Teton National Forest.
Between the two forests and the surrounding public lands, you'll find endless hiking, camping, and adventure opportunities.
