What was the old Ice Cave Trading Post became Bear Claw Trading Post in 1995 when we purchased the business. Bear Claw is located approximately forty miles south of Sun Valley and forty miles north of Twin Falls in central Idaho. Nina came to us in 1997 and Scott the year after and they became the managers. They have been the backbone of Bear Claw since. As the years passed, their daughter Michelle, began helping out when she wasn’t working at her regular job. She can do about anything from painting, pulling trailers, and vacation relief to innovative first class art work. These folks are an important part of our family. Needless to say, we are proud of them!

We love being located on the lava flow. It has challenges at times, but the natural beauty of the area is unsurpassed. We hope when you visit Bear Claw Trading Post you will take time to see all nature has provided in the area. Be sure to see some of our videos.
