Also known simply as Honeyman State Park, is in Lane County of the U.S. state of Oregon. It lies 3 miles south of Florence along Highway 101, the coastal highway. The 27,212-acre 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.
Bring the family and spend the day. This park is great for family reunions, parties and just getting together. In spring the pink rhodendruns and yellow scotch broom bring life to the recreation area for everyone to enjoy. Late summer and early fall bring on the huckleberries and black berries so don't miss out on a visit to this area.
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.
