In the middle of nowhere on Hwy 26 you come across this place and it is beautiful inside. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. The grounds surrounding the restaurant have many logging artifacts and the building inside has many photos and other mementos to look at as well.

It was a beautiful day and we stopped for breakfast and then took a walk around the property afterwards. Lots of old equipment from logging days. Several pieces of equipment told their story (we really liked that). The restaurant itself is a great place to explore

My wife and I were returning from Seaside on Hwy 26 and we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Camp 18 this morning. I arrived hungry, and that situation was promptly resolved with a waffle, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and coffee. Everything on my plate promptly disappeared. Yes, I was hungry, but that doesn't affect my objectivity. I enjoyed good service,... More

Traveling to Seaside we came up to Camp 18. Although I have been there before it is interesting for all the wood they have. We had a late lunch. Service was great, food was great.

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
