CAMERON TRADING POST
Cameron

Cameron Trading Post, which has served travelers on their way to the Grand Canyon for nearly 100 years, is a one-stop shop: a lodge, restaurant, gallery, gas station and gift shop. Longtime manager Jimmy Jensen says visitors often stop by for unique Native American crafts, such as intricate kachina dolls that took six months to carve and handmade sterling-silver jewelry.

Talk about the crafts you sell.
They are handmade and one of a kind. We make sure crafts are made by Native Americans. We have a person whose only job is to go out and see artisans make jewelry, buy it and bring it to the store.

Are there any risks to buying Native American jewelry at the Trading Post?
If customers purchase Native American jewelry, and if something were to happen to the piece, they can send it back to us and we'll send it back to the silversmith to have it fixed.

How have the demographics of your visitors changed over the years?
We've had a lot more European, Chinese and Japanese visitors — a lot fewer Americans. Maybe their money is better. Most of them are visiting the Grand Canyon, about 30 minutes away. If you're headed that way, Cameron's the last big stop before the South Rim.

—Kayla Frost

Cameron Trading Post is located 54 miles north of Flagstaff on U.S. Route 89. For more information, call 800-338-7385 or visit www.camerontradingpost.com.
