Welcome to Gladstone!
Whether you're in need of fuel, auto service, food or rest, Gladstone offers a friendly, convenient, comfortable stop. Visit the famous Happy Rock,the community roadside attraction located on Highway #16, for tourist information and to have pictures taken.

In 2010, "Happy Rock" was commemorated with its own
Canada Post Stamp.
