Attraction details
Reviewed September 15, 2013

My parents took us to Honeyman when we were kids, but I hadn't been there since. We decided to camp in our RV there so my 3 kids, (9, 11, 13 yrs) could enjoy the sand dunes. We had planned to stay 2 nights but they begged us not to leave so we stayed 4. It was a very busy time for this park, being the 3rd week of August, but it was wonderful! The kids LOVED the dunes. There is a large sand dune and a beautiful lake right there at the state park! My 9 yo son learned how to sand board in 1 day just by trying. (And only $4 for 4 hrs to rent a sand board). There are other activities such as kayaks that can be rented as well to use in the lake. The park is paved and so bike riding is a pleasure. Over 400 sites! Frankly, we easily could have stayed for 2 weeks if we had the time off.

My only son and child almost "grew up" in this camp as with our friends and relatives spend several Labor Day outdoor activity in this place... The lake inside the campground is ideal for a half or a whole day(if preferred) drift rafting and swimming---it so relaxing and so tranquil that you are totally rested at the end of the day...Plan to camp in here for at least a minimum of three days so you will be able to enjoy this park in full... Dune group rides are available just a half mile away from the campground or you can bring your own dune all terrain vehicle and drive it on some designated areas on the sands at your own time...The nearby historical town of Florence is also a great place to just walk around or shop...

This year we brought our boys with us and ended up staying in the very same spot as last year by fluke! There were lots of Canadians camping around us, so very popular with us Great West North people. Bathrooms were very good and it was even better having hot showers that you didn't have to pay extra for. The park is very clean and it is fun to see Park Hosts again from last year doing the kayak tours. The kayak tours on Cleawox Lake are relaxing and very informative. Well worth the $10pp to go. It was lots of fun to walk around the campground and see the chalk art that the kids put around their campsites. I can't wait to go again and stay a bit longer than 2 nights.

One of the biggest & BEST campgrounds on the whole Oregon coast!!! Has a lake to fish, kayak, swim, trails to hike & sand dunes to explore. Close to Florence for dining, shopping, crabbing, etc. Fabulous trees abound

We stayed just one night and appreciated the advice to stay away from Loop H. We had a nice, quiet site. The bathrooms were clean, as was the campground.
