The Shoshone National Forest, which surrounds the town of Dubois, Wyoming in all directions, covers nearly 2.5 million acres. Nearly 1.5 million of those acres has been set aside as wilderness. There are 5 wilderness areas and 3 mountain ranges within this national forest - one of the most rugged, scenic and remote areas in the West.
The Painted Badlands, much of which is public land, mixes with and backs up to the Shoshone National Forest and the town of Dubois. There is nothing like the beauty of the badlands. Spring rains cause the prickly pear cactus to bloom among the sweet smelling sagebrush. In summer, the painted hills glow red-orange just before sunset; and in winter, a dusting of snow turns these wind-eroded hills a soft white. Because these BLM lands and Wyoming Game & Fish lands are public, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy thousands more acres of land surrounding Dubois - not just National Forest Land.
The Town of Dubois, (pop.962), is a quaint cowboy town situated in the beautiful Upper Wind River Valley between two mountain ranges - the Wind Rivers & the Absarokas. The blue-ribbon, trout-filled Wind River flows out of the mountains and through the town. The Dubois area is rich in ranching and tie hack history, but today, people are flocking to the area for its outdoor recreation. Many visitors, enthralled by the beauty of their surroundings, decide to buy vacation homes or retire here. Wyoming is known for its harsh winters, but Dubois is considered Wyoming's "Banana Belt" because of its mild winter climate. The town doesn't get much snow, but the surrounding mountains get lots of snow for those interested in snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or dogsledding. Horse riding enthusiasts can ride horses all year round in the badlands surrounding Dubois.
Even though the Dubois area can hold its own for being one of the most beautiful, scenic and remote places in the United States, it doesn't hurt to mention that it is a gateway town to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The entrances to these majestic parks are only 50 miles away.
Dubois does have an airport for those with private or chartered planes. The nearest airports operated by major airlines are Jackson Hole (1 ½ hours away) & Riverton (1 hour away).

Cattle & Sheep Ranching is also a very large enterprise here.
