State 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.

  • Great place to camp with plenty of fun activities in the park. You can rent canoes at the lake and paddle around the lake. While the lake looks a bit small, you can paddle through the narrow section in the northwest by the girl scout dock and explore much further. The camp sites are a bit close together, but the trees help it feel more spaced out than it actually is. There are a large number of campsites so it's a good place to stop by if you don't have reservations anywhere.
  • This place is great for off season camping. Nice and clean. But steer clear in the regular season unless you like hearing off road vehicles at all hours.
  • Easy to find, pretty clean overall, nice hike to the dunes, friendly staff. They could improve their signage with all of the one-way roads, arriving after the sun went down made navigating the sites a little difficult.
  • A really nice park. The lake is lots of fun. Sadly, I left my camera in the bathroom, and it disappeared forever.
  • I grew up near this place. The lake is beautiful and has a nice swimming dock. I only offer 3 stars because they cut down around 30 percent of the trees that offered shade and it looks very shoddily done. It is more hot now with less beautiful trees. It is the best lake for tourists to go for a swim in though. It is warmer than woahink lake which is just across the highway from here.
