Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

We were originally planning a trip to Glacier and Watertown National Parks but had to switch gears due to the wildfires in MT. We needed a place to stay near The Tetons. We chose The Grizzly Cub Cabin at Big Diamond Ranch. This cabin had everything we could ask for and more. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, we even rented ATV's and spent a day riding on the local forest roads. The property owner Kathrin was very accommodating and responsive. We hope to return someday. We highly recommend renting a cabin at Big Diamond Ranch.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very remote (no cell service!), which is just what we wanted. Far enough away from other cabins to where you don't know they are there. About 15 minutes outside of Dubois and 45 minutes from the entrance to the Teton national park, which was perfect! The Wind river flows though the property- didn't get to fish it as all the local streams were blown out but imagine it would be fun when it's in shape. Very attentive staff- really appreciated their promptness in addressing any concerns! There was a woodpecker who liked to visit at 6am, but other than that, the stay was just about perfect.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a great location, very private, and comfortable. It was perfect as a home base for exploring the Wind River range, Teton, Yellowstone, and the Continental Divide area. Terrific views from the cabin! Inspiring drives in any direction, with the highway practically to yourself. Highly recommended.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was very well maintained and very organized. Martin was excellent to deal with and was always available to provide any assistance or answer any questions. The Grizzly Cub cabin was just the right size for our family of 4. Not too big and not too small. Any more than 4 and it might begin to get a little tight. I would definitely recommend the property and I would stay there again.

Great place. Great People. Great ATV riding and fishing

  • 5 of 5

We 2 couples stayed in the grizzly cub cabin. It was clean, modern, and beautiful. The kitchen was well appointed. The bedrooms, while small, were comfortable. The beds also comfortable. The bathroom was nice and the walk-in shower was excellent. Martin, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. The owners' children were wonderful and even guided us on an ATV ride! We trailered t our own RZR side by side from MN and ran around in the trails. It was the best riding we ever had! Between the gravel roads and the trails, it was beautiful riding. We put on 300 miles during the week. You can get right to the trails on the connector trail made by the owners right from the cabins. The owners have nice new ATVs and side by sides for rent also. If you have a license plate, a horn, and a left side rear view mirror on your atv, you can ride on the blacktop also.

We bought fishing licenses (14.00 per day) at the Dubois grocery store for fishing the trout in the wind river below the cabin. We caught dinner in the form of rainbow trout!! Truly a bonus for the trip!! We took a day trip to Yellowstone. We would go back to the Big Diamond Ranch any time.

The mountain-hemmed town of Dubois and the Upper Wind River Valley that surrounds it are only about an hour’s drive from Jackson Hole, but they’re a world away. The area is one of the most spectacularly scenic — and still relatively undiscovered — vacation destinations in the Northern Rockies.

The town and its outlying hay meadows and cattle ranches are bordered by several million acres of National Forest, more than half of which are protected as wilderness areas.

Spectacular Wild Country

To the east of town are the dramatic redrock canyons and colorful rock formations of the Dubois Badlands. To the southwest loom the rugged peaks and glacial lakes of the Wind River Range. To the North rise the pine-clad slopes and alpine meadows of the Absaroka Range. And rolling away to the southeast are the sagebrush hills and high plains of the vast Wind River Indian Reservation, home to the Northern Arapahoe and Eastern Shoshone tribes.

The valley abounds with wildlife. Nearby Whiskey Mountain supports the largest herd of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep in North America. Other big-game animals and rare species thrive in the wild country that surrounds Dubois: moose, elk, antelope, deer, mountain lion, bald and golden eagle, grizzly and black bear. Area streams and lakes teem with an impressive array of game fish, including rainbow, lake, brook, cutthroat, golden and brown trout, grayling and mountain whitefish.

Lots To Do in Town

Although outdoor adventures are the area’s specialty, there’s lots to do in town as well.

The National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center, opened a few years back, has already become a major visitor attraction. The center houses a number of impressive exhibits on bighorn sheep biology and successful herd management methods used at Whiskey Mountain. Next door, the Dubois Museum’s exhibits link the valley’s ethnic, social, cultural, and work history with its archaeology, geology, and natural history.

Dubois shops sell everything from cowboy boots and fly-fishing gear to handsome coffee-table books and upscale gifts. A tour of town shops reveals fine silver jewelry, crafts by Native American tribes, high-quality Western-theme gifts, and crafts by local artists.

Off the Beaten Path

Dubois is a busy place in the summer, but the solitude and natural splendor of the badlands and mountains are only minutes away. Miles of scenic unpaved roads take visitors in vehicles or on mountain bikes deep into the back country, and dozens of trail heads lead to a network of well-maintained hiking and horse trails.

Southwest of Dubois is Union Pass, said to be the only place in the country where three river sources flow in different directions: streams born on the pass eventually join the Columbia, Mississippi, and Colorado rivers. Union Pass is accessible to four-wheel-drive vehicles during the summer months and early fall.

Southeast of town is Whiskey Mountain with its resident bighorn sheep herd and a major trail head that serves as the jumping-off point for hikes and horse pack trips into the Fitzpatrick Wilderness. The bumpy dirt road that leads to the trail head makes for slow going, but sharp-eyed travelers can spot ancient petroglyphs carved into rock faces along the way.

For those who really want to get away from it all, a number of local outfitters offer guided fishing and pack horse trips into nearby wilderness areas.

Summer Activities & Events

Downtown Dubois

Dubois bustles with activities and events nearly every night of the week in the summer. Lectures and demonstrations by the Dubois Museum, the National Forest Service, and the Bighorn Sheep Center will be given at the fire circle in the Dubois Town Park. Topics include: history, geology, camp cooking, fishing, wildlife, breaking wild horses, berry picking, and other general interest subjects. Gather beforehand at the Sheep Center and take the short walk to the park.
