This is the old Indian trading post and as nice as the new one is outside the park (has some cool stuff) this one is better in many ways.

This place offers some great food. The gift shop is a mix of tourist items as well as locally made items. Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent here

A great place to browse. They have an extensive art exhibit,not the run of a mill junk store. Be sure to walk out to the outside dining area. They have it landscaped with water features. We found some nice gifts that were reasonably priced.

I don't recall if they had baskets. They do have an art section in the back with high end art work.

I saw some on the patio where we were eating. The only way there was going through the trading post. That whole area is very dog friendly.
