About The Longhorn Ranch Lodge & RV Resort
The experience of living “out west” awaits you at the Longhorn Ranch Lodge & RV Resort, nestled in the lush Upper Wind River Valley near Dubois, Wyoming. Our family-owned operation- hotel, campground, & RV park- is a private, 46-acre oasis located along the banks of the picturesque Wind River. Wildlife photographers flock to our outpost in the summertime, to capture the native bighorn sheep against the natural pigment of the Painted Hills just to the north. Backcountry enthusiasts – hikers, cyclists, backpackers, and climbers – brave the infamously rugged Wind River Mountain Range to the south. Our location offers breathtaking 360-degree views, with world-class recreation just a step outside of your lodging. Near to us, just a short, 2.5-mile drive to the west of the Longhorn is the charming, old-west town of Dubois, Wyoming. (Voted Top 10 Western Towns in the USA and Top 10 Most Beautiful Towns In Wyoming) Our summer/fall season is full of local and international guests expecting first class service. We pride ourselves on delivering a memorable experience while enjoying the adventures of a lifetime.
The Longhorn Lodge & RV Resort recognizes that our employees thrive with positive, fulfilling experiences. We emphasize hard work and professionalism, but we prefer our relaxed environment. We continue to cultivate a workspace where staff feels respected and valued when interacting with management and fellow employees.
Working at The Longhorn and meeting guests will be a fantastic part of enjoying your time here, but days off are when the mountain magic really happens. Staff will have the opportunity to discover world-class, unique adventures: horseback trail riding, live rodeos, fly-fishing, camping, wildlife watching, alpine hiking, and whitewater rafting; all within minutes of The Longhorn. Historic Jackson Hole is a fun day trip, and both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are within driving distance of Dubois. Many of our guests are touring to or from Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP, and Jackson Hole, just another 80 miles west of town, through jaw-dropping National Forest and the awe-inspiring geological features of the volcanic Absaroka Range.
So, as you see, The Longhorn Lodge & RV Resort is the PERFECT place to spend a summer. Don't believe us?!

The Employee Experience
We place a great deal of importance on making sure staff enjoy their job AND their time off. The surrounding area is a wonderland of infinite outdoor possibilities that we want you to find time to explore. Our little slice of Paradise is a summer tradition for many guests AND employees. Year after year, traveling student staff have come from all over the world to return to The Longhorn to work. We invest in building meaningful relationships with staff because we love when past staff returns seasonally.
We work hard. Daily, we answer phones, clean rooms, empty garbage, do laundry, mow lawns- and the list goes on, but we relax, play, and adventure just as hard. Many people visit Dubois to work on different ranches in the area and realize they have found something they didn't know they were looking for. Whether that 'something' is a sense of belonging, adventure, a feeling of home, or the unique experience of living remotely, Dubois finds a way to live deep within your heart long after you've left.
We have the best team! Season after season staff have been absolute ROCK STARS! The Longhorn searches for candidates that are self-motivated with a great attitude, and who thrive working in a team setting. We expect staff to have a great deal of professional integrity, accountability, and a willingness to work hard.
Many of our team members live and work together daily. These conditions require flexibility and adaptability to a wide range of personalities, work, and living habits.
Team members at The Longhorn are our best asset. We strive to make you feel as safe and at home here in Wyoming as we do.
