#2 of 8 in Parks in Florence
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 3mi south of Florence along Highway 101, the coastal highway. The 27212acre 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.

  • I have only been here for day use, but I stop by every time I am in the area. The place is cool! Dunes, wildlife, lake, it is all pretty! There is so much to explore. The dunes are amazing, really tall, and the sand is really soft. There is the sound of ATVs in the distance, so it is not totally peaceful, but still a place that you can relax
  • Very fun place to stay at. Beautiful woods, and there were owls above our site. Easily accessible dunes stretch far. One particular dune was very large and fun to run or roll down. I didn't do it myself, but there were lots of ATVs and dirt bikes driving around the sand. Our campsite had electric and water hookups for our trailer. Great lakes nearby and lots of little trails to hike.
  • My family and I live in Florence Or. Honeyman is about a mile south of here. Every year 1st weekend in June the 1st Saturday is a free State Park Day. Meaning no park pass is required and the campsite is free. Also at Honeyman there are several State Park Staff Guides that will be of assistance to kids or Adults who would like to fish. They will assist you with fishing if asked from baiting your hook down to cleaning your fish for you. On this Day they also provide free hot dogs and T-shirt painting. My Family loves it . We always pay for Friday's campsite and then get 2nd night free. And it's never crowded. DEFINATLY check it out. Beautiful, clean and safe with free hot showers.
  • . Nice park. Need to be good at using internet. If you don't already have reservations. Have to plan to far ahead to stay at State Parks.
  • Fun times at the coast and a place to camp. With a lake to swim, fish and a great dune to slide down.
