  • Enjoyed popping in after a late morning stroll around the nearby Lake Superior shoreline! A wide range of items are available to lure just about anyone to pull out some hard earned cash (or plastic). ...  more »
  • We stop here every time we are in town. We enjoy looking through the gear and odds and ends. Higher end, not junk.  more »
  • This was a great store with everything one needs for a stay in Grand Marais-there were maps for hiking and exploring the Boundary Waters, and a great mix of quality gifts for family & friends.  more »

  • Love coming to this store. Some for everyone. A must stop!
  • Imagine, if you have the energy, a timbery rustic style gift shop, except larger, and with more variety of clothing and various objects. It is, essentially, a trading post on Lake Superior.
  • This place saved our bacon on a cold motorcycle trip. We forgot some wet weather gear and warm gear for the big loop and bought it here. They have high quality stuff but it's not cheap. You will find stuff that is higher quality but also higher priced. (Example is Marmot rain gear. Very high quality).
  • Lake Superior Trading Post has such unique items for sale. Friendly & helpful too!
  • Great general store with everything you could need and some stuff you don't. Closed Sundays. Imperative stop if you're in Grand Marais.
