Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, also known simply as Honeyman State Park, is in Lane County of the U.S. state of Oregon. It lies 3 miles (5 km) south of Florence along Highway 101, the coastal highway. The 27,212-acre (11,012 ha) Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area adjoins the park to the west. Many amenities are available, including over 200 campsites, all-terrain vehicle access, swimming, fishing and sandboarding.
Originally named Camp Woahink, the park was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and was later renamed in honor Jessie M. Honeyman (1852–1948) of Portland. As president of the Oregon Roadside Council, Honeyman worked with Samuel Boardman, Oregon's first Superintendent of State Parks in the 1920s and 1930s, to preserve Oregon coastal lands.

Several of the structures built by the CCC, including the camp store, three picnic shelters, and the administrative building, comprise the Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park Historic District. The campground was added in the 1950s. The Lake Woahink Seaplane Base is on Woahink Lake, southeast of the park, and Camp Cleawox, a Girl Scout camp, is across Cleawox Lake and northwest of the park.

  • Probably the best campground I've ever stayed at. Lots of campsites. I arrived without a reservation in late June (granted, it was midweek), and there were many sites available. Very reasonably...

  • First, we did not expect to find full hookups including sewer, that was a great surprise. Sites are spaced out and there is some privacy in sites with all the beautiful trees. There are 7 or 8...

  • From all I'm hearing and experiencing this State Park is in high demand much of the season..but as luck would have it, it's open all year round. There's plenty of time to get a taste of nature accompanied with all your modern conveniences like hot water, showers, restrooms, toilet paper and squeaky clean sites and accommodations... there's trails to lakes, dune's, and if the mood strikes you're 5 minutes from the town of Florence. Florence is a nice, clean town, quiet, and has everything ( except Starbucks) for whatever needs you have. Minutes away from your local grocery & gas station... movie theater or personalized family owned diner...you won't be disappointed.
  • This is a pretty good Oregon State Park. Great spot if you’re an ATV or off-roader, or sand scooter person…. Or whatever they call those LOUD sand dune buggies now a-days. No Beach Access. Nice clean newly remodeled restrooms with free showers. No security and no personal at the gate. Anyone can come in and steal your stuff. We didn’t have any problems, but apparently it’s somewhat common as there are warnings posted. Nice welcome center with maps, information and friendly humans.
  • Outstanding spot. The F loop was very wooded and wonderful, spot 275 was outstanding and gave us a quick ish walk to the dunes, it isn’t close to the ocean but an amazing adventure. Great showers, bathrooms and an excellent spot for kids of all ages. Super close to excellent ATV rental.
  • Otherwordly! Such a fun place to explore the dunes. Easy to get to, easy to navigate. Good signage, clean restrooms. You can buy a parking pass from an automated kiosk.
  • Places to camp or picnic for the day. $5/day parking fee. Bathrooms are always clean. You can rent little kayaks, they usually have an assortment of life jackets by the little swimming area. My dad used to come here when he was a teenager, so he would bring my mom and I when I was a kid. Now, I'm bringing my little family!
