“great stop for lunch/sounvenirs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We were coming from Sedona, heading to the Grand Canyon, by way of the Wupahti National Park, which I also recommend and stopped at the Cameron Trading Post for lunch and to check out the souvenirs, of course, since we had 2 teens in the car that like to eat and shop!! They have tons of things in there , some bargains and some beautiful pottery (more pricey but good).Lunch was the best. Comfortable atmosphere and good food, nice menu. I had this Indian Fry bread taco that was wonderful. It was the mini version but it was huge. I should have bought a package of the fry bread mix that was sold in the store to take home!! We went in November and it was just a little busy but there is not much else around and it is a popular stopping place and good for a bathroom break!! Don't miss it.

“Big Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

This place has a huge selection of great finds, however some items aren't authentic Native American hand made. Lots of products had tags that said "made in Taiwan" or "made in china" which was kind of off putting. Also I found them to be slightly over-priced, but don't let it deter you there are still a lot of good finds here.

“Everything a tourist could want”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

What an Aladdin’s Cave of tourist treats this place is! We took a short break at the trading post on our way to the Grand Canyon NP, and were amazed at the array of not-inexpensive local handicraft and jewellery goods on offer at this extensive shopping experience. Luckily, we were able to find some coffee in amongst the merchandise. Certainly worth a look as there are some very attractive goods on display.

“Great place to stop going to/from the Grand Canyon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We found the Trading Post by accident when driving from the Grand Canyon (which was 'closed' due to the Government shut-down) to Sedona. We were looking for a place to have lunch and thought we would check out this dot on the map. Lunch was excellent - we had never experienced anything like the fry bread before. I guess this place would get very busy when the Grand Canyon is 'open' but when we stopped here it was very quiet. The gift shop has a huge range of items from cheap Chinese-made souvenirs to truly beautiful Navajo arts and crafts. We bought a beauthiful piece of pottery which now has pridce of place in our cabinet..

“cameron: more than just a trading post”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

if you are in northern arizona, say on your way to the grand canyon, a stop at cameron "trading post" is well worth the time. cameron is not only an active trading post, but also a gas station, a post office, a restaurant, a motel and a first-rate gallery with higher-end indian art. the restaurant caters to tour buses as well as locals. indeed, for a time the menu included lamb stew, which was delicious. today, the indian fry bread is probably the best of the fare. while in the restaurant look around at the gorgeous handmade navajo rugs. after visiting the post, stroll north to gaze into the gorge of the little colorado river. in the rainy season, the "river", shallow though it is, will be running a muddy chocolate brown, coloring the main river at their confluence where the colored water of the little mingles with the usually green/blue of the big river. if tired, the motel offers clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. be advised, however, because of its proximity to the navajo reservation, the post has no alcohol; bring your own.
