There are so many ways to go camping near Dubois! You can pull up to one of the commercial camping areas close to the highway, or you can go off into our pine-scented forests, find a campsite, pitch your tent, and hang your hammock.
In the summer months, you can camp at any of four public campgrounds in the Shoshone National Forest:
At Brooks Lake and Pinnacles, hard-sided camping units only are allowed. Full RV hookups are available only at Falls Campground. You can’t reserve a site at any of the five locations above.
Bears and fires are always a threat in the Wind River back country. If you’re camping in the woods, come prepared to stow food and any fragrant attractant such as lotions and campstove fuel securely away from bear access, and build fires only in the metal fire ring provided at your campsite. To learn more, read about bear safety and fire prevention from the US Forest Service. You could also check out this useful campfire safety guide from a hiking supply site.
