Everything you need at the historic trading post!

From its roots as a US Post Office to the variety of services it offered the locals for nearly 100 years, the Swan Lake Trading Post is more than just the check-in desk… it’s a gathering place, a social center for the community where kids can get candy and ice cream and locals perch on the wooden stools and discuss wildlife sightings and current events. Grab some necessities, pick up a fishing and hunting license, chat with travelers about news from out of state or just down the road. The Trading Post is a welcoming place where the conversation is always friendly and the coffee is always hot!
