Where real cowboys work and play...so the town motto goes! Dubois Wyoming is located about an hour east of Yellowstone National Park in Northwestern Wyoming. The town ideally located between the Absaroka and Wind River mountain ranges. The Wind River meanders peacefully through town on its way to join the Yellowstone River system. Native Americans, fur traders, homesteaders, outlaws, and Scandinavian tie hacks are all part of the area's diverse cultural heritage.
The area is home to the largest herd of bighorn sheep in the lower 48 states. The National Bighorn Sheep Center tells its story in interpretive displays and takes visitors to view the sheep in winter.
Several thousand elk winter around Dubois, and watchful visitors can easily spot mule deer and moose. Wolves have been a presence in the area since a pair of wolves wandered out of Yellowstone National Park to establish the first pack outside the park.
Dubois hosts a variety of special events beginning with Winterfest in February, weekly family–oriented rodeo and a chuckwagon dinner starting in June, and a national juried art show in July.
