The food was amazing, the atmospher was so lovely and comfortable. The history, the structure, and the logging machinery were interesting, and the employees were so friendly. Loved it....

The food is really good, home cooked style food and large servings. The cinnamon role is enough for 4 people. You must try it. The hot rolls are really good too. All of the food is good. The atmosphere is half the reason to go!!! So much to see and do while you are there. A history lesson about logging... More

My husband and I visited in October 2014. The restaurant is made of logs, is family owned and operated, and has a lot of history, items and pictures involving logging. We had hamburgers for lunch and they were amazing. It was fun.

This is such a great place to stop and eat. It is beautiful inside and the logging history is really fascinating. The food is reasonably priced and the big foot sundae is a must!

Real log restaurant with it's own museum and gift shop, and current logging all around. Huge fireplace, several floors, great service and great food. The parking is ample but sunny so be mindful of your furry friends. by the way say hi to the yard kitties.

We started our morning with breakfast at the lodge. Afterwards, we spent at least an hour looking at rusty old logging equipment and reading the history of it. I appreciate that someone thought to put this together and make it a place worth visiting. Quite fun! Can't wait to take my dad back to see it.

We never visit the coast without stopping at Camp 18. Their lumberjack sized breakfasts and giant cinnamon rolls are delicious and great fun to share with grandkids. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and include picnic tables, hiking trails and, of course, the wonderful antique logging equipment installed randomly throughout the property. There is a nice gift shop and pleasant restrooms... More

If you liked the way your grandmother cooked, you'll love Camp 18. On weekends it is PACKED for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Aside from the fact it is about the only restaurant on 26 Hwy between Portland and the ocean, it serves very good food. And for the volume of customers they are quite fast. You will not be disappointed.... More

We were recommended to stop off here for a break on our way from Portland to the coast. The interior of the restaurant is astonishing - with the largest single trunk ridge beam of a log cabin structure in the USA - and believe me the trunk up there is vast and I can't begin to imagine how they got...

Between Portland and Seaside is Camp 18. It is a museum and a restaurant. The restaurant has very good food. It is interesting to see all the Things that they used to cut Down trees in the old days.
