“Best Meal B4 U get to the Oregon coast on Hwy26”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is located 18 miles from Seaside, OR and about 1 hour west of Portland.
It use to be a wood mill in the 1800 and there are a lot of artifacts from that
era. It's a very good restaurant with large portions but it actually tastes great.
Get the cinnamon roll to go it's the size of a dinner plate but worth it. There
is a self guided museum, which if you have time it's worth going through.
It's a nice stop for pets and humans alike! Go there you will NOT be disappointed.

“A wonderful treasure to encounter during your Oregon vacation”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Camp 18 is an excellent restaurant, with museum, both devoted to the logging industry. The grounds of the restaurant contain dozens of pieces of archaic logging machinery, including various types of industrial saws, tractors, and various machines used process wood. What reminded me of Camp 18, is that yesterday I toured Death Valley (for the sixth time this year), and stopped at Furnace Creek and viewed archaic machines used to process borax. Anyway, the menu at Camp 18 is whimsical, and it will be a source of enjoyment to children and adults, because a few of the foods are given names relating to logging. The griddle cakes are called, "flatcars." A beef dinner is named, "The Riggin' Boss." Out in back, is a nature trail that leads by a stream, and which takes you through a patch of skunk cabbage. Despite the inelegant name, it is the case that skunk cabbage plants are beautiful, and when in bloom, are as lovely as anything in a florist. Continuing on to the west, the road (Route 26) that takes you to Camp 18, takes you on to the legendary Cannon Beach on the Pacific coast. To digress slightly, Cannon Beach features a selection of inviting motels, large and small, modern and funky.

“denny's in a log house”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

my parents come here several times a year and so i though i would skip eating breakfast in cannon beach and save my hunger for this destination 1/2 way back to Portland. my return drive was on the first day of wild cold coastal rain that marked the end of this summer. pulling into the jammed parking lot of this amazing massive log structure on that Sunday made my anticipation peak a great deal.....stepping in to the toasty fire warmed room with my shoulders cold and damp from the icy downpour with table after table of hungry dinners, i felt i had entered a hall for feasting.
i became instantly starved for the heavy satisfaction of salt and savory that is the hallmark of brunch.....eggs.....sausage....breads....syrups and jams!!!! i was sooo glad i waited to eat!!!! i ordered.....stared at every server as they came out on to the floor....was this my order? again and again no....oh the exquisite agony until at long last...mine and ours had arrived....some salt on the hash browns...catchup and pepper sauce next to it for dipping and then? my first bite!!!! omelet!!!! huh? where was the ham? the cheese? the environment suggests they could satisfy a loggers appetite. but the omelet was flat and flaccid with nearly no ingredients, no onion just some cheese and a sprinkling of a sad flavorless ham product....the cubed potatoes tasteless though cooked well. the other dishes we ordered were equally unappealing. none of us had the "oh i ate too much and glad i did" groans that come from destroying sunday to- do plans with a overly satisfying, nap inducing brunch.
we tipped exceedingly well due to the perfect and personal wait service but we encountered at both ends of our meal the horrific behavior of the front desk staff treating every person, customers arriving and leaving along with waitstaff, each other and each of the situations i saw them handle as inconveniences or cataclysmic hassles in full unabashed view of every patron. in fact the front desk behavior was our reality TV like entertainment for the duration of our meal once the reality that our food was pleasureless set in.

“Beautiful Log Building and Scenery!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

If you are heading down highway 26 - Camp 18 is just great fun place to stop for a bite of good food and very beatiful setting and log building. We came for breakfast and the food and service were very good! Easy to find.. Just look for mile marker 18 and your there! "Hence Lumber Camp 18 miles from the start of HWY 26 from HWY 101" = Camp 18! The place can get extremely busy in the summer and weekends. But worth the stop!
Enjoy WEST-MORRY
