Start your adventure at the Trading Post, where our friendly staff will get you on the next available tour and answer any questions you may have. The trading post is an amazing place, with many unique gift and souvenir items for every age. Delight in beautiful wall hangings and one-of-a-kind natural art pieces, as well as inexpensive, fun keepsakes. Mom will love the jewelry created with gemstones from around the world, Dad will take his time checking out the amazing selection of natural show pieces and keepsakes (and an incredible selection of pocket and collectible knives), and the kids will love the woodland plush animals, individual stones, wooden guns, swords, toy animals, and souvenirs.
The Trading Post features copies of the movie “Frank and Jesse”, featuring scenes from inside the cavern as well as the surrounding countryside, and starring Rob Lowe, Randy Travis, and Bill Paxton. The movie set is still set up in the cavern; and, with a little prompting, guests can be treated to a few funny behind-the-scenes stories.
After the tour, exploring the woods, panning for gems and conquering the maze, everyone will be ready for a snack! The trading post features ice cream, jerky, candy, chips, as well as Lost Trail specialty sodas. It’s the perfect end to a wonderful day!
