State Park Nature / Park
Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, also known simply as Honeyman State Park, is located in Lane County, three miles (4.8 km) south of the city of Florence, on Highway 101. The 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.

  • Lovely campground. First spot was in loop A, swamped, boggy and mosquito ridden, but, hey, it's Oregon and it's been raining ALOT the past few months. Moved up to F loop , nestled into the east side o...  more »

  • So much to do just in the park. And Florence is an awesome town. AND....there is a very good all-you-can-eat buffet at the casino just 5 minutes east of town !!!!
  • Even on a gray day, we love it here. Good little nature trail around Cleawox Lake we always do. Great facilities, swimming areas, fun dunes, beautiful trees, and that awesome CCC Cleawox clubhouse.
  • This is a large campground with a variety of different sites available. We got in loop A which is heavily forested and beautiful and nearest to the entrance/exit. The nearby restroom and showers are almost hard to see due to the green trees and bushes. I walked to the back of the campground and found less trees and bushes separating the sites so less privacy and not as pretty. If you are going to the dunes or want to be closer to the playground, those sites are good. For us, we like the prettier and quieter sites in A loop. We also have full hookups.
  • Great park to visit, easy ocean access from the campground, I'd definitely spend another extended weekend here.
  • The park hosts were friendly & available. The showers, restrooms & refuse area's were tidy. Oh yeah, the park is beautiful!
