Welcome to Cameron
A tiny, windswept community 32 miles east of the Grand Canyon's East Entrance and 54 miles north of Flagstaff, Cameron sits on the western edge of the Navajo Reservation. There's not much to it; in fact, the town basically comprises just the Cameron Trading Post and the attached motel and restaurant. In the early 1900s Hopis and Navajos came to the trading post to barter wool, blankets and livestock for flour, sugar and other goods. Today visitors can browse a large selection of quality American Indian crafts, including Navajo rugs, basketry, jewelry and pottery, and plenty of kitschy knickknacks.
