Those who want to learn more about logging history in the northwest, or who simply are curious about vintage logging machinery, will find plenty of material at Camp 18. Outdoor displays include multiple steam donkeys such as a Dolbeer single spool, a very early first-generation model, to a high-tech late-model Willamette compound geared yarder that was the height of technology for its day. Other displays on site include a large bandsaw from a sawmill, a self-propelled Ohio steam crane, Caterpillar-style tracked vehicles that worked in the woods, a railroad skeleton log car and other heavy equipment plus a wide variety of large and small hardware. We will make a quick stop here on our way to the spectacular Oregon Coast so that you can explore the historic equipment, use the restroom, and buy some coffee if you want.

Even though there were just 2 of us on the tour, in a lovely Mercedes van, the drive down to the Oregon coast was mesmerizing. The highlight of the day was a short hike through the temperate rain forest of Short Beach down to the shore. Massive centuries old trees towering above you, dead stumps the size of SUVs, mushrooms and moss hugging each limb like long lost lovers, the gurgling streams, and the rugged coast adorned with layer upon layer of volcanic rock on one side, huge deadwood and milky waves crashing down on the spotless beach... all you can think of is what the early Spanish explorers must have found when they beached their ships. You can almost see a native American crouched in the dense foliage, with just some elk skin to protect his body from the cold and the rain, aiming his arrow to take you down.
Don't miss this one!

Had a great tour of the Oregon Coast. Evan is an awesome tour guide and very knowledgeable and really seems to love his job. I definitely recommend this company to anyone wanting to do a tour of Portland area. I believe I will actually return with family and will look forward to repeating the tour

This tour far exceeded my expectations! I've heard the coast is beautiful but WOW is it even more incredible in person! Definitely worth the drive, I'm so so glad we decided to take this tour. Our guide Denon was AWESOME! He took us to some extra stops as well since we were a smaller group and a bit ahead of schedule. Loved his sense of humor, he was also very knowledgeable as well. Can't wait to go back!
