I was somewhat expecting LSTP to be a bit of a touristy trading post, but I was surprised that they did have quite a selection of gear for preparing you to enjoy the outdoors here in the Grand Marais area of the North Shore. Found some good books on hiking, as well as some gear for our dog who joins... More

This is always a fun place to stop by when in the area. There is something to interest everyone. We were up here with our kids on a rainy day and stopped in for some cold weather gear and found what we were looking for.

We love taking a drive to grand marias for the weekend. We love the small town and all the little specialty stores. It feels like a world away! It's so layer back and relaxing. We like the trading post store too. It's fun to spend a few hours just looking at their little treasures.
