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.
Sounds like my kind place to eat.
My kind of place to visit, sounds wonderful. Have a blessed day.
Forty years ago we ate at a Miners' Camp in Arizona which was a lot like this logging camp. Definitely an enjoyable meal.
That has to be such a great experience and unique. I can always remember the logging camp museum at Grand Rapids. They don’t serve meals but they fire of the woodturning stove and free onions and potatoes to give off the smell of breakfast at the camp. When started describing the place I immediately thought of that smell.
Oh my goodness! That all sounds wonderful. It sounds like just the sort of place we would like to go. I don’t think I could eat that much food though!
Many blessings, Betsy
Pauline, the Mining Camp is still in business, we ate there about 6 years ago. They have bluegrass music shows during dinner service. It's a fun place to go!
Sounds like y'all had a good time and a great meal! Thanks for sharing! :-)
What a fun place to visit!
Sounds like a fun place! Sorry, I can't help myself, when people list food, I'm always looking for the 'coloured' vegetables. An awful lot of white with that meal ;-)
Lumberjacks didn't eat many veggies! :)
Sounds like a lot of fun - good food and good company.
Fantastic place for a meat eater, for sure. Nice to know it hasn't changed for decades. :)
Sounds like it is just up your alley! :-)
Sounds like an awesome place to eat and visit
Good wholesome food. the lumberjacks needed that much food.
Sounds wonderful! Reminds me of the Samoa Cook House in northern California.
Sounds delicious! We have a logging style restaurant near the Oregon coast called Camp 18.
What a great place! Now that would be a place I would enjoy going to. I never go out to eat as there is no places around here that can cook as good as I can except every once in awhile I go for an old fashioned cheese burger and fries. I'd also like a real malted milk or a real ice cream soda but no one seems to make them anymore....not around here anyway. I guess I'll have to make those too! LOL!
