We have not been to the Logging Camp for supper in years. My other baby brother called and said “Let’s go check it out.” So we did. It hasn’t changed at all in twenty some years.
Tin plates and checkered oil cloth and family style service…we all had ribs piled high on an oval serving plate…sides were buns, corn bread, coleslaw, macaroni salad, baked beans and mashed potatoes. It was all topped off with a Lumberjack Doughnut. We all ate too much. There are many kinds of meats…you can have meat with your meat…roast pork, roast beef, baked chicken, ham or ribs….they will bring you as much meat as you can eat.
Everyone sits at long tables on simple long benches…there are various cast iron cooking vessels on the wall and misc logging equipment. The wood floor has seen lots of traffic over the years.
There are chickens, turkeys and ducks running around free range outside…eating bugs and most likely ticks as The Rapid River Logging Camp is located in the deep woods.
The food was excellent, and the sevice was great. It is a family dining destination open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. They also serve breakfasts…pancakes, eggs, ham, sausages and hashbrowns…and stewed prunes. After all you have to keep the lumberjacks regular.
