We stayed in an "old growth" forest site with electricity and water, which was beautiful. We ended up staying 5 days instead of 3 which was planned. My husband used his kayak on the day use lake and had a great time. You can walk to the dunes. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

The town of Florence is nearby and has everything you need. We found a cute tea room restaurant for lunch (Lovejoy's) that also had crab cakes etc., and the food was excellent.

Another great Oregon State Park. Like lots of state parks finding sites for our 34" motorhome can sometimes be a challenge, particularly heavily treed sites. With some searching found a good site and with some maneuvering around were able to get backed in and fit the tow. The 30 amp service and water worked fine. During the summer season reservations would be wise/necessary. Very nice park with lots to do and close to Florence with even more to do. Host and park rangers were excellent, including management's decision to discount the site because of 30 amp breaker problem we caused. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent Oregon state park. The park staff is very friendly and knowledgable Sites are well situated to allow for privacy. Parking pads are level and fit our 40' motorhome and towed vehicle easily. This has many great hiking trails and a couple of very nice lakes for fishing and kayaking. There is also direct access to the Oregon dunes. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Close to old town Florence. Many great restaurants to choose from. We had dinner at Mo's right on the waterfront and the food was excellent. There are several ATV and dune buggy outfits that offer rentals or guided tours of the dunes.

Great campground! We opted for partial service (no sewer). Treed site - couldn't really see neighbours. Paved roads throughout park and paved parking area at each site.

Bathrooms were old but clean. Showers were at the end of building with separate entrances. We didn't use showers so cannot comment, but there was a handicap shower.

Staff at booth were excellent. We were told we could go find a site and come back and register. We took clerk's suggestion for a site, "but if you don't like it, come back and tell us which one you want." Very accommodating. Not sure it's like this in the height of summer!

Only negative was no wifi, but we knew that Oregon SPs do not offer it - maybe one day. Our cell service worked (from Canada). Not sure which US carrier.

We would definitely stay here again - it's a lovely spot and right in the Dunes Recreation Area. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

At time of writing, save monety and buy gas in Florence - we paid 2.19 @ Shell. Gas stations south and north of Florence were anywhere up to 2.79! Quite a savings.

Only at the park for 1 night, so did not "do" Florence, so cannot comment on what's there to see and do.

As with all Oregon state parks, this campground is clean, quiet, and a wonderful place to camp. Our site was large and full of shade with tons of room behind our motorhome. The restrooms and showers are immaculate, although the buildings have been around for a while. There is no cable or Wi-Fi here, but we were able to get a few channels with our antenna and there was good coverage with Verizon. There is a very nice trail to run/walk on and to walk your dog. The campground was not busy while we were there, however later in the summer it would be a good idea to make reservations on their website or 800 number. We would stay here again. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Huge state park very close to the sand dunes. If you stay in the H Loop the noise from the ATV's is louder and the sites are less sheltered than some of the other loops so it can be windy. Dump station worked well. Firewood available from park hosts. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of my favorite Oregon State Parks. I stayed in a level shaded spot with water and electricity. There are several nice easy paths to walk, one of which ended at the lake where you can swim or kayak. Friendly, polite check-in. Stayed here in a Class B with my pet. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park with close access to water. However, we were told it's a 2 mile walk in sand to the dunes by the ocean. We stayed for 2 nights in a 25 ft RV in spot 268. It,s right next to the playground and shower/washrooms. Spot was quiet and surrounded by trees. There was dune buggy rentals close by down south by a 5 minute drive. Not cheap though....$150/hour to rent your own or $30 a person for an escorted tour on a big buggy that last about 30 mins. Firewood is sold on site for $5 a bundle. Would be back again!

This park is situated in a redwood forest along the Oregon Coast, against the Oregon Sand Dunes which provide a buffer zone between the campground and the Pacific Ocean. It is often windy and a bit cold here during the summer, though when we stayed the skies stayed sunny during the day, which helps. RV sites have either water & electric, or full hookups (with sewer). Sites for the latter are confined to the H-loop, which is a slightly less attractive area due to a lower density of trees. Also regarding full hookup sites, sewer drains are located near the front, while the electric box is at the rear of the site, making connections potentially difficult. The park has a playground and nature center (F-loop) with educational programs for kids. Shower stalls are roomy and are operated with a push-button (no hot/cold control), but we found the water pressure and temperature to both be comfortable. Fire rings are provided, and campground hosts sell firewood. Within the park there is also a beach on a small lake, with boat & PFD rentals for a nominal charge. The state of Oregon takes good care of this park. Despite a few shortcomings, this is a fine, economical place for families to camp along the Oregon coast, and with all the activities one can do in nearby Florence and the surrounding area, I recommend it. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

I am rating this campground as a 6 because it is barely passes as appropriate for our 40 foot RV with 4 slides. The sites are quite narrow, so that the slides hit branches when extended. The site was somewhat difficult to back into. However, if one had a shorter RV, especially with only slides on one side, this park would rate much higher. The RV sites are in the forest and the park area is quite striking, indeed making the difficulty in getting into the site worthwhile. The nearby Oregon coast area is beautiful and interesting to visit. There is no sewer hookup, the electric is 30 amps, and water hookup was satisfactory. Since this is in the forest, there is no satellite service. Restroom and showers were clean and well maintained. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We absolutely LOVED this campground! And we're not the only ones considering it is full most of the summer, so if you're thinking of staying here be sure to make reservations. It is just south of the cute coastal town of Florence which has shopping, grocery stores (Safeway and Fred Meyers), and restaurants if you're tired of camp cooking. The campground is set in a nicely wooded area just east of the famous Oregon Sand Dunes. You can access the dunes by foot or by ATV if you own your own. Also there are local rental places for doing dune buggy rides. There are also two fresh water lakes to play in if the ocean beaches are too windy or chilly to hang out on. We will definitely come back again! We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We really like it here. There are 8 loops. We stayed in loop H and were close to the showers and toilets. Showers were not all that great. Push a button and the water starts. Push it a couple more times and it will run long enough for the water to get warm (but not hot.) The people were friendly; the park was clean; firewood was available; and the after hours check-in process was simple. If you want to camp near the ocean, don't come here. If you want to see the Oregon Dunes, this is the place. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We are in F270 which backs up to the dunes, but you would never know it since this loop is thick with tall trees and the dunes are over a steep hill to our rear. The dunes are just a short walk away from two separate trails in F-loop. The Verizon cell and data works well; however, the TV via antenna is marginal. The park is very popular for sand dune activities and has several lakes within it's borders. The sites are generous and the park is well maintained. It is very child friendly with a large playground at the exit from F-loop. Florence is just a few miles north and is a very nice town with many small shops and restaurants. Overall an excellent place to experience Oregon Dunes and the Oregon Coast. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Great park with lots to do! Had fun playing on the dunes with friends and swimming at the lake. The park can be really busy during the summer, but worth the stay! We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Tent.

A very large cramped state park - tight roads if you meet anyone going and coming on main road. Campers will stop in the road and walk in the road so it is challenging to maneuver. We had a nice wide spot in the H loop but could hear the ATVs roaring since that area has direct access to the dunes. There were 3-5 tents at some sites with multiple vehicles and tons of people since it was a holiday weekend. Since off roading is not our thing would not return especially on a holiday or weekend. We camped at Jesse M. Honeyman Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
