Thirty minutes or so from Seaside on Sunset Highway is Camp 18. If you're hungry and have a big appetite then Camp 18 is the place to eat. The servings are big and don't forget to order one of their giant cinnamon rolls. Just make sure you bring a few friends to help you eat it! I got the shredded steak quesadilla which I shared with my sons and my husband had a beef and cheddar melt. And of course, for dessert we ordered a cinnamon roll. Even with all of us eating it, there was still leftovers.
What I really enjoyed about Camp 18 was the rustic and beautiful lodge that the restaurant is housed in. It was very rustic with bear carvings and framed photos of the logging days in Oregon. Upstairs was the lounge where you can look down from the loft and see the restaurant below. The whole place was cozy with a large fireplace, and I enjoyed the whole Oregon feel to the space. Then outside, there were small pumpkins for the little kids to take home with them. There was lots of space to walk around and look at all of the old fashioned machinery used for logging back in the day. Camp 18 was a really fun experience for us and worth the drive from Seaside.
