My hubby decided he wanted to stop here to rest some because he saw the huge billboard signs, saw the name historic, and said to himself he cannot go wrong here well knowing how his other half is….smiles. Right away it stands out because every building is built with red slate stone. Many of buildings were built around the middle 1900’s and were combined into the structure today. This is a huge store with all kinds of souvenirs to choose from. There is a gallery, gas station, post office, restaurant and a hotel that has some pretty awesome view of the gorge just on the other side of this trading post. Right next to it is a 1911 swayback bridge constructed to give access over the gorge. Now a modern bridge runs right along side of it.

Cameron 1916

Brothers, Hubert and C.D. Richardson soon established the Cameron Trading Post. Horse drawn wagons full of bartered goods made by local Dine artist would sometime take days to get this establishment, so this became a place that welcome them not just as quest but friends. The brothers earned the honor of the Dines trust since they learned the customs and language. Over the years it has become a popular place to stop, rest, eat, or find those unique souvenirs.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Has shopping, gas, restaurant, market, post office and hotel!
  • Cons:It is either hot or cold here!
  • In a nutshell:More than just a trading post!

    On our tour, we stopped at Cameron Trading Post for a meal. It was huge and good! I bought so many souvenirs from here to bring home. They were different, good quality and good price! Nice to read your page to bring back the memories on this place.

    Looks like another historical gem to tick off!! Is that bridge closed now? Thanks for the ratings on my Brampton page.

    I can't believe such small places exist. Never been to USA, so have to depend on the movies for information [lol]!! Looks interesting though.

    The Trading Post Hotel in Cameron catches my attention. The hotel to me is a package full of beautiful scenery as described by you. It will surely be a pleasant stay.
