We have a couple of other videos about Camp 18 that you may be interested in seeing.
They give you an idea what you’ll find on site during a Camp 18 visit.
The original spar tree, erected in the late 1980s, was dangerously rotted and in need of a new replacement.
This video gives an overview of cutting, transporting, prepping and raising the new spar tree while safely removing the old one.

Like the first spar tree, the original hayrack boom had rotted away.
This video shows the process of lifting the new hayrack into place and securing it as part of the new spar tree display. Hayrack boom

SHOW INFORMATION

Admission is $15 per person at the door. There is no pre-registration.

LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION!
We've made significant improvements to the room and contest model lighting in the Camp 18 event room, so the dimly-lit contest area is a thing of the past. You'll almost need sunglasses from now on.

Dealers: Space is very limited and our dealer tables sell out very early after the show each year. We occasionally have cancellations so if you’d like to be “on the list” call Lon Wall at (503) 857-2800. We’re exploring options that would allow us to expand our dealer sales area and that would open up more table availability. Likewise, if you’d like to be “on the list” please let us know by phone
or email us via the Contact Us Form by clicking here.

All vending is strictly limited to logging-related items, and will be available on a first-reserved, first-served basis.

Meals are available at the Camp 18 Restaurant, and they’re darn good, too!
Breakfast starts around 7 am and is served until 2 pm, lunch starts at 11 am, and dinner selections are served starting at 5 pm.

Be sure to check out the famous Camp 18 cinnamon rolls - they’re huge and delicious!

For general information, phone Lon Wall (503) 857-2800, or Jeff Johnston (541) 485-8203.
E-mail us with questions or for more info.
