Place is kind of funny. Pretty much a dump that sells some native American trinkets and stuff like that. Plus camping/hunting stuff, leather boots vests, etc. The bar is actually really nice. Basically a Biker stop.

Stopped by for the Bloody Mary Bar and was not disappointed. Great selection of mixers and garnishes. The price was fair and the staff friendly and helpful. We also did a moonshine tasting. The selection of moonshine was amazing and bought 2 bottles

It was our first e-bike experience and it made us smile. You barely have to pedal and you're cruising down the road. Doug was easy on the phone and accommodating in person. Just do it.

Just ask for Doug, and he will make sure you have the best ebike rental ever. Awesome to site see around the Starved Rock area, and up and down the I&M towpath (now a trail for biking.)

The Trading Post is always a fun stop for the kids as well as adults. The kids enjoyed looking around, but there wasn't that much for them, so it's a nice quick stop.

A fun place to visit. He has a bit of everything, from vintage original postcards, mocassins, Harley paraphenalia, souvenirs and on and on. Kids love it. AND, as of May 2016 he is expanding! Adding a patio and more. Worth a visit.

In the little town of Utica I expected this to have Indian themed items as well as the typical "gift sore" items to pacify younger kids. What didn't expect were the swords, knives and leather goods.
