“Good quality Indian arts and crafts”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

We stopped here for the Shell garage on the way to the South Rim.

There were some good quality silver jewellery and some nice horsehair pottery. there is also a very good, but expensive, gallery which was very interesting. I wish I could have afforded a Navajo flute.

No alcohol as it is prohibited by Navajo tribal law.

“Cameron Trading Post”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We spent one afternoon, an overnight and a morning at the Cameron Trading Post in Cameron, AZ. The hotel room was pleasant, clean and overlooked the Little Colorado River gorge. The food in the restaurant was good for breakfast and just okay for lunch. The service was good and the staff hospitable. The trading post has many diverse items, from souvenir level goods to pawn American Indian jewelry, hand woven rugs, and pottery. The quality of most of these items is very good, but they are very expensive compared to other locations - even high end shops in Santa Fe.

“Like a whole bazaar ...”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We'd left Page early in the morning - after a repeat visit to Horseshoe Bend that morning - and since we wanted to go the grand canyon agauin, for the east part of the rim drive, we decided to stay a night at the Cameron trading Post if possible (we didn't have a reservation).
When we reached Cameron we booked into the RV Park of the trading post across the road from it. The park offers full hook-up pull through, on gravel, with a few. On the whole it looks a bit barren, and there are no showers or restrooms on this side, in the RV Park. The lady who checked as in said the was free wifi but it didn't really work from the RV park - you could come and sit in the garden on the premises of the Trading Post across from the gift shop and behind the gallery. The trading post also operates as a motel and a restaurant, and there's a gas station. We didn't eat at the restaurant here - unfortunately as we later thought - so I can't say a thing about the food. The gift shop, and there's a grocery store integrated at the back of it, is one of the largest and greatest I've ever seen, with a gazillion tasteful and really neat articles, from cheap souvenirs to valuable artifacts. You could lose yourself in there for hours and within the first few minutes you'll see umpteen things you'd just love to have. Maybe glue your credit cards to your wallet before you turn the family loose in there.
When we got up the following morning at Cameron it was blowing like mad, the way it had the day before and most of the night. We walked around the Trading Post once more and - of course - couldn't totally resist the temptation to buy something in there, don't think anybody can ... the place is huge. When I first walked in the day before I thought I was looking at a mirror somewhere and it reflected the place back to me - but no, it is like an endless gallery.
We went and looked at the absolutely magnificent and lovingly tended garden behind the motel building, a tranquil oasis of flowers, trees and fountains.
This is a great place to stop between the Grand Canyon and wherever you're headed - or vice versa. It's also a place to stay if the rim lodges are booked solid (which they will be if you haven't made a reservation)

“cheaper elsewhere”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We stopped at the Cameron Trading Post which had a huge selection of souvenirs and jewellery, however it is worth noting that we'd seen many of the items much cheaper at other locations (especially if you stop at a roadside stall and buy direct from the producer). It gets very busy with coach tours.
