"Campers get the best of both worlds - hike the trails or visit the nearby towns."
From managing state parks to managing campgrounds, Rick and Barb Collignon enjoyed an easy transition into the camping business. In 2005 they bought and converted an older campground into a new, up-to-date KOA. "KOA is a strong company that is highly regarded and dependable. We wanted the feature of internet reservations, and KOA has that. It worked out great," said Rick. Rick and Barb have been consistently renovating the campground. Hookups have been updated, and the pool has undergone extensive upgrading. The campground is able to accommodate any type of camper; they have tent sites, cabins, and big rig sites. "Campers can back their RV's up to the Wind River and enjoy all the modern amenities but still experience the surrounding nature," added Rick.
Rick and Barb say that the campground is an easy walk to the main street of Dubois and is a great base of operation for many travelers with many different needs; from attempting summit Gannett Peak to meeting family for reunions, the Dubois campground can do it all. "The campground sits alongside the Wind River and is nestled between two mountains," said Rick. "Campers get the best of both worlds - hike the trails or visit the nearby towns." "Dubois is a destination, and our campground is in town so we are a destination park. People are able to mix and mingle because it is centrally located," said Rick. Rick and Barb's goal is to build good will and bring life back into the campground. Because it was converted, campers are likely to see newer facilities and fresh landscaping over the next years. "We want to provide quality experiences for our guests, and keep them coming back," said Rick.
