Heading to Portland Oregon from Cannon Beach on highway 26 you come across this wonderful place. It is owned & operated by Gordon & Robert Smith and has family dining since 1986. The food is average priced but servings are large and the food out of this world. They serve breakfast (the biscuits & gravy combo with eggs and two... More

You can stop and stretch you legs after driving the 70 or so miles from Portland while taking in the sites of Camp 18 and the history they have put together. Lots of old items that were used by some of the loggers in the early 1900's.

Hard place to miss as there is all of this logging equiptment out front. It takes up a lot of space and if you have kids or an interest in early logging practices, this is the place. Most of it is outdoors in the parking lot so one can take it all in for free including the nice river access.... More

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.
