We find places to eat, stay and see by often reading TAdvisor Reviews. This one for us did not live up to expectations. We found it so so compared to many other places we have stopped at. I bought some fudge and found it average after the saleswoman said theirs was very good. Most prices we found to be on the high side, except for a few jars of Dark Tickle bakeapple, squashberry sauces and Saskatoon jelly that we purchased. Dark Tickle is excellent if you ever go to Newfoundland. If we come through again we would just continue on. If you have never seen an old time general store, then a quick stop might be worth it for you.

We always stop here when we go through the area and even make the trip up when camping an hour away. The store has lots to look at and interesting touristy items. The pickle barrel is a must if you like pickles!! People have even asked us to bring them back pickles....a 9 hour drive away!! A fun spot to stop and the original Wawa Goose has even retired right next door! Check store hours before planning a trip though as the store closes for the winter season!

This is just off Hwy 17, heading into Wawa and is very interesting. There are lots of antiques in front and my husband enjoyed looking at ones from lumbering, just around the corner of the building. Just as you would expect, the "general store" has anything you could think of and more: jerky, souvenirs, a pair of large wolves, leather items, food, drugs, candy, toys, etc, etc. It was just a nice break from riding to wander through it - something for the whole family.
