So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Dugspur). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Dugspur or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Dugspur) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Dugspur.
