Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, also known simply as Honeyman State Park, is located three miles south of Florence, Oregon, United States on Highway 101. The park is located along the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, in Lane County. The campground offers several activities, including yurt camping, all-terrain vehicle access, swimming, sandboarding and a group camp.

Originally named Camp Woahink, the park was created by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps), and was later renamed to 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 park structures built by the CCC—the camp store, three picnic shelters, and the administrative building—compose the Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park Historic District.[2] The campground was added in the 1950s. The park is next to Cleawox Lake.
