Camping, Chuck Wagon Dinner Show, Trail Ride and Rodeo in Dubois, Wyoming

Come to Dubois, Wyoming (Where Real Cowboys Work and Play), on a Thursday, June 18 – August 20, and camp at the Dubois Wind River KOA, enjoying all the scenery of the wilderness while camping on the Wind River in the heart of a small old West town.

Thursday night dinner is served at the Circle Up Chuck Wagon Dinner Show where Cowgirl Catering cooks up a full Dutch Oven meal like the cowboys enjoyed after a day on the trail. Then listen and laugh to the music of The Prickly Pair and the Cactus Chorale as they entertain you in the old West and Celtic way. Just $22.00 for adults and $6.00 for kids 11 and under. Saunter back to your campsite for a good night’s rest.

The next day take a 2 hour horse ride on MacKenzie Highland Ranch’s trails into the Shoshone Forest. Rides are $20.00/ hour per person. Longer rides are available for an added charge. They also have ATV’s for rent if you have no spurs.

Upon returning to your campsite, get ready to Cowboy Up at the Dubois Rodeo. Enjoy Sally’s burgers and Angus dogs before heading to the stands to experience a local rodeo where the competition is friendly but the cowgirls and cowboys are serious. Kids enter the mutton bustin’ or race for the ribbons on the calves’ tails. Dudes from the quest ranches compete for ribbons on the steers’ tails. Tickets are available at the gate for $7.00/ adults and children under 5 free.

It’s a late night of fun.

Then it’s back to your campsite for one more night of camping along the Wind River. $43.00/ night for full hookups with TV and WiFi. The Dubois Wind River KOA is located 50 minutes east of Grand Teton National Park and 90 minutes east of Yellowstone National Park.
