The Trading Post has a small, but very popular, 70 site campground located on the same property as the canoe livery. All the sites are located along the riverside or surrounding our inland pond. The sites include a fire ring, picnic table, lots of shade and several offer electric hookup! Fisherman love the convenience of having their camp and fishing spots be one in the same! If you are planning to camp with us be sure to take a look at our campground map here on the website, then give us a call and we will setup a reservation to ensure your space is available when you arrive.

The Trading Post is the 2nd largest canoe livery in Indiana, and Mongo's original and premier canoe rental since 1971! We are family owned and have been consistently upgrading our equipment and our facilities to better meet the needs of our customers.

The Trading Post participates in Indiana's Adopt-a-River program and, with the help of our friends and customers, engages in a continuous effort to keep our river litter-free. We also take the lead role in keeping the fallen trees cut from the river; our customers and private paddlers alike benefit from our efforts!

Stop in to visit our retail and camp store where you will find paddling accessories, vintage apparel, camping and fishing needs, firewood, ice, and snacks.

Whether you prefer a short excursion or a multiple-day outing, come to the Trading Post and canoe the historic Pigeon River for a unique and exciting adventure the whole family will enjoy. Our trained and friendly staff will ensure that we exceed your expectations and add an element of fun in our laid-back environment.
