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.

So many things to see and we especially enjoyed the new tribute to the fallen loggers. Took lots of photos of the old style machinery and the picknik tables made out of such large trees.

Beautiful building with lots to see. The menu is varied, something for everyone. My friends and I stop nearly every time we visit the coast. If you like liver and onions, be sure to order it here!!! Absolutely the best you will get in a restaurant.

So much to see and a restaurant too. Amazing look into how people used to risk their lives to make a living cutting trees. The old equipment and photos are so cool.

The portions are logger - size so you better come ready to eat. The flatcars, aka stovelids, aka pancakes and omelets hang over the sides of a dinner plate. Don't even think about a full stack unless you are prepared to take some home! The logging museum is interesting and the chainsaw sculptures add a quaint woodsy flavor. Nice small... More

We stopped here for a late lunch around 1:30 in the afternoon and this place was hopping! I wish I had had the burger instead of the french dip though. We all enjoyed our food and had a good time.

My wife and I have eaten here many times, and we really love the food. Nice portions, flavorful, and we love the logging history as our parents were loggers. During the summer, it is so nice to stroll around the grounds and look at the "Old days" logging machines and history after having a good meal.

Five of us arrived and saw what appeared to be a delicious rack of ribs being taken to another table. 4 of the 5 of us all ordered ribs. the fifth person said " I don't know, they look kinda greasy " and ordered a steak. I can say the steak looked delicious and the ribs were also..... However, on... More

Whenever I have guests visit Oregon we stop at Camp 18 on our way to Seaside. The food is good, and alot. They are known for their cinnamon rolls any time of day. Looking around at the history of logging the Tillamook forest through all the pictures and equipment is worth the stop. If your lucky you will be there... More
