Wind River Country is home to Dubois, Hudson, Lander, Riverton, Shoshoni, the Wind River Indian Reservation and other smaller towns.  Our communities are diverse and a reflection of the history that created them.  A little bit of the Old West combined with mining towns, a military post and Native American culture.  Today, you’ll still find that diverse and independent spirit to welcome you to Wind River Country.

Atlantic City

This authentic, historic town remains true to its origins when it was a gold mining camp during the turn of the century.


Dubois is situated in the “banana belt” of Wyoming with Chinook winds that help keep you cool in the summer and melt snow in the winter.


The birth of Hudson was primarily due to the building of the railroad into the area in 1907 and 1908.


Each year, visitors enjoy world-class high mountain lake fishing, mountain & rock climbing, winter recreation, and hiking in the Lander area.


Riverton lies at the confluence of the Big and Little Wind rivers and was established in 1906 on land ceded from the Wind River Indian Reservation.


The area offers a gold mine for the rockhound in petrified wood, agate, tourmaline, and quartz. Some mercury has been found near Bonneville.

Wind River Indian Reservation

Wyoming’s Wind River Country is home to the seventh largest Indian reservation in the country.
