Camp 18 Logging Museum & Restaurant
US Hwy 26 at milepost 18
There’s no other place quite like it; a logging museum with vintage equipment parked outside and a giant log cabin with antler chandelier and fireplace serving lumberjack portions of classic American diner food done right. Hearty skillets, burgers and breakfasts are good any time of day but don’t miss the notorious cinnamon roll here that may be as big as your head. About a 20 minute drive out of Seaside but well worth the visit. Go in the day time to appreciate the creek and outdoor structures and get photos of the steam driven timber era memories.
