    Camp 18 - Not Just A Restaurant

    I took a short 100 mile ride this morning for breakfast. Camp 18 was an old logging mill before its conversion to a large family restaurant and gift shop. Located on Hwy 26 just 10 miles from Seaside, OR it's situated in the middle of nowhere yet always manages to be packed with people on weekends. It took me seconds to be seated in my favorite loft dining room on the upper floor. The food & service are always great there.

    After breakfast the fun really begins with hiking trails surrounding the facility that contain all the old machinery, water tower & huge remnants of trees the size of a semi truck. There are plenty of photo opportunities to keep you busy for hours. The area is also a central point for great motorcycle roads such as Highway 53 to the south of Tillamook, OR, Highway 47 that twists through Vernonia, OR before ending on Highway 30 that travels west to Astoria, OR or East to Portland, OR.

    I suppose all this justifies a 100 mile ride, round trip, for breakfast. I've done it often and feel that if you're in the area it's a must visit.

    Bob,

    Your ride reports never disappoint. Camp 18 does indeed sound like a real find. What's your typical breakfast? Bacon and eggs, or something more exotic? Thanks for the cool views.

    I had a Denver Omelet with fried real potatos.

    If you get across the southern border (into California), consider visiting the Samoa Cookhouse, across the bay from Eureka. It's an original cookhouse for the lumber and sawmill that used to run in that area. They serve all-you-can-eat Americana style foods, with a couple choices for the main course for lunch and dinner.

    (Eureka is a great spot to base yourself for a couple days of excellent riding in the Shasta-Trinity Wilderness.)
