Nestled along the Little Colorado River Gorge and located just 30 minutes from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park entrance sits the historic Cameron Trading Post Motel. What began as a Grand Canyon area hotel catering to visitors passing through in the early 1900s has become an attraction in and of itself. Our Southwest style rooms are decorated in a Native American art motif indicative of Grand Canyon country. From your room you can enjoy sunset views of the Little Colorado River Gorge or experience the serenity of our gardens in full bloom. If you're looking to see the sites of the Southwest, we are centrally located to the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Canyon De Chelly and Monument Valley. Stay at the Cameron Trading Post Motel and experience not only the nearby attractions, but also the arts and crafts, the people and a culture unlike anywhere else. Stay with us and Discover What We've Spent a Lifetime Learning.
Navajo rugs, Hopi pottery, Hopi kachinas and silver and turquoise jewelry have always been the heart of the Cameron Trading Post trade. Over the last 50 years we have had the privilege to add Apache baskets and Plains beadwork. For those visiting the Southwest for the first time or looking to begin their collection of Native American art, our curio gift shop offers Native American jewelry, Navajo etched pottery, sandpaintings, Native American baskets and a variety of Grand Canyon souvenirs. Visit our rug room and witness the art of rug weaving in action with rug weaver Elsie Gander as she weaves Navajo rugs demonstrating this intricate art. If you are a collector of Native American art or want to learn more about the history of the culture, a visit to our gallery is an experience not to be missed. Here you will see Antique Native American art including beaded moccasins, beaded dresses, pipe bags, historic pottery and fine Navajo textiles from the late nineteenth to mid twentieth centuries. If you cannot visit us in person, shop our Native American art online to add to your knowledge of the Southwest and take advantage of this great opportunity to enhance your collection.
Prickly pear French Toast, Navajo Tacos and Navajo beef stew are just a few of the creations unique to the Cameron Trading Post restaurant, but the distinct experience at our Grand Canyon area restaurant doesn't stop at our food.
