We love Camp 18 and stop to visit / eat nearly every time we pass it to visit the coast. This time was the first we ever had such subpar dining experience! Our waitress was just making mistake after mistake after mistake. She never brought our appetizer, even when we reminded her. Orders weren’t brought out as ordered (missing items/ingredients). The dinner salad looked sad/not fresh and doused in too much ranch. Waitress gave us our bill that had been paid by another guest / have us their card (!!!! She literally gave our bill to the wrong table then after running the card returned their card to us to sign !!!). There was so many things that went wrong - I honestly couldn’t believe it. We were really bummed out as we were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and she was so excited to come.

I was coming back from the beach and decided to stop here and check it out. I loved the history here and I would have given this 5 stars for that but I had a late lunch and wasn't impressed with the food. The atmosphere of the restaurant was awesome, but I was disappointed by the food. The fish was hot but looked like it came out of a bag and was thrown in the fryer. The Chips (French Fries) were on the cold side and service was slow even though there were very few people in here.

Even though I knew about this place, this was not in the plans. With the road to Ecola being closed, I made this a plan B. What a great choice. This may be a "roadside attraction", but definitely one of the better ones. Gift shop, restaurant, and an outdoor logging museum. The museum has old equipment scattered all over the place as is just a fascinating step back in time. You name something logging related, it is probably in here somewhere. There is also a Loggers Memorial building honoring Oregon loggers who worked the land. Some lost their lives on the job accidentally which makes you realize how dangerous the job is. If you find yourself on the Sunset Highway, this is a must stop.

There is so much neat stuff here. It’s a beautiful place to get out of the car and walk around. We’ve always been in a rush to get somewhere, but we thoroughly enjoyed this stop and will make it a part of our trip from now on. The people are friendly. We also loved the restaurant with the views of the river out back. Make sure to walk around the back side of the restaurant. So nice.

If you're into seeing some historical logging machinery and learning a bit about the history of logging in Oregon, it's a pretty cool place. The creek is beautiful out back and there is definitely a lot to see. The wood carvings are impressive, especially the one of sasquatch. Gift shop was nice and the dining room was full, however we did not eat there. It was a great 30 minute stop for our family with 2 teenagers.

excellent food as always, but my last experience left a lot to be desired. Our order took a good 45 minutes to be brought to the table. Our waitress never refilled our water during that 45 minute wait, as we sat on the deck in the sun.
On every visit before we always had speedy service and a very attentive waitress and fast delivery of our meal. I will return again and im hoping the whole experience our last time was a fluke. We love the restaurant, the food and wait staff i won't let 1 bad day ruin my opinion of Camp 18.

Wow. Wonderful service. After we ordered we walked around lodge and looked at all the artifacts. My family has logged for at least 3 generations. My Grandfather horse logged. Was awesome to old logging equipment and stories. Food was great and plentiful.

Wonderful rustic Log Cabin Restaurant and Logging Camp to explore inside and out, with great food and a fun gift shop! So much to look at on the inside and a great lower level for large parties. A lot to see and beautiful property out back near the river. Service is good, staff is friendly and the food is very good!

Great place to stop for a rest or to grab a bite to eat in their huge restaurant. Food is abundant and service is fast. The grounds are fun to explore. Old logging equipment, tractors, etc. There's a stream that run in the back that's cool to see. Their small gift shop offers souvenirs, snacks and one of a kind item. Check it out.

This outdoor logging museum is located at Camp 18, which is the same place as the huge log cabin restaurant. The day we visited, it was pouring down rain, so I could not take any photos, but for anyone with even a passing interest in logging or just "old stuff", it's well worth a stop.

They have all kinds of old logging equipment here. You'll find steam donkeys, including one of the oldest around. There are logging arches, high wheels, old bulldozers and even an old railroad car. Scattered around are smaller bits of old logging and farming equipment. I got a kick out of the huge pile of old rusty cable - used for hauling logs.

Looming over the whole yard is the 160 foot tall spar tree.

Nearly every display has an informative card with it, so you can learn what the item was.

Go inside the restaurant and wander around to see all the wall displays of logging equipment, which includes a wide variety including logger's boots! There are some great historic pictures on the walls.

The new Logger's Memorial was closed the day we were there but it looked interesting when we peeked through the windows.

It's definitely worth a stop at Camp 18.
