We had our food in less than 15 minutes - lots of variety - clean washrooms. Large ice-cream selection. We've stopped here previously with a bus and still was fed quickly. Did not visit the trading post this time but it's a separate building.

Anyone who has heard the advertising jingle on the radio must stop here to check out the wide variety of items on display. From artwork, books, clothes and fudge there is something for everyone.
