Communities

Wyoming Map

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.
