  • LOVE the trading post. Got some moccasins and fudge. Always get a candle and they were 50% off ! Great place to stop in for a visit ! They really should fix the floors before someone has a fall. Other...  more »
  • It has beautiful quality items. Something for everyone. I found wonderful moccasins with comfy insoles, good outer soles for wearing outside, very pretty beading and the exact color of tan. All the things I have been looking for in moccasins. And the price was really good. Quality is exceptional. Plus I'm from the north so it's traditional to stop at the French River Trading Post.
  • Grew up in the Parry Sound District when stores like this were every 25 miles on Highway 69 so it is always great to stop in here when I am back home for trip down memory lane. They had some really nice Tom Thomson prints that are reasonably priced and a good selection of moccasins. Since the store had just open up for the season lots of the shelves were empty but there was still enough in the place to see while stretching your legs.
  • A nice place to stop for a break while driving up north. A little expensive for me, but a nice shop to look through. Food is good although portions are small. Good variety of ice cream.
  • Fast Food and ice cream - also buffet style with soups and salads - really only place to stop between Parry Sound and Sudbury - washrooms - also has a trading store to browse in (and buy if you can afford) good fudge I think $4.50 for quarter pound
  • Wonderful spot. Talk, walk, shop and EAT! Friendly people. Clean place. Good food with good prices.
