Trading Post is our favorite autumn destination! Paddling the river in in October is a delight. Peaceful waters, sunshine and turning foliage. But best of all was the service! We felt cared for, catered to, and so appreciated the kindness from everyone we encountered there....More

We loved every second of the trip. The owners and help were very friendly and helpful. Clean facilities as well. We are going to use their business again on the next cayak trip. Campground is clean, shaded, beautiful. Can greatly recommend it.
