There is nothing better than taking an adventure to the Oregon’s countryside. On this adventure, we had fun with a visit to Camp 18 Restaurant and the Logging Museum.

Camp 18 Restaurant and Logging Museum is a great place to visit along Highway 26 and Humbug Creek.

We enjoyed a cold drink, along with a delicious meal, and did not pass up dessert. I cheated and took some of my fish in a to-go box home with me, so I had room for the marionberry cobbler.

There are wood carvings of loggers and wild animals all around the grounds for you to find.

After you had a lovely meal, it is time to discover the grounds and gift shop.

Oregon has always relied on the logging industry. From the 1800s to the 1970s, logging was the main staple of Oregon’s economy.  

During the early years, logging equipment used was with horses, mules, many types of hand tools and steam equipment.

As you are exploring the grounds, you will see many types of logging equipment from years gone bye.

It is very relaxing to take a stroll as you explore the equipment and follow the path down to Humbug Creek.

It is a sweet day when you can take your time and embrace your surrounding and discover another place in Oregon.

When you are exploring see if you can find the Monmouth Elephant hiding along the waters edge of Humbug Creek.

Yes, Oregon still has a place where the mail is delivered by boat. You can purchase a ticket in Gold Beach, Oregon to ride along and enjoy the view of the Rogue River, along with the beauty that surrounds the river.

The day starts early in the morning. Everyone gathers at the docks and prepares to board a jet boat. Once everyone is aboard the adventures begins, we head up the Rouge River.

As we head upriver, you may see a variety of fishermen looking to catch a record fish.

The captain and guide of the jet boat will give you great information about the Rouge River and the history of the area.

The adventure traveling up the Rouge River is exciting, with many types of wildlife and beautiful scenery. When taking in the view and looking into the treetops, you could spot eagle nests along with a few glorious looking eagles as well.

After delivering the incoming mail for the area, we had a wonderful lunch at a lodge along the river.

We could not leave the lodge before enjoying a delicious blackberry cobbler.

Delivering the mail on the jet boat is an excellent adventure on the Rouge River with lots to see and fun for any age.

Then we were off to gather the outgoing mail for the area, and head back down river.

Give us a call… We do have fun in Oregon!
