Jervis Bay National Park, formerly known as Jervis Bay National Park (NSW), consists of several protected areas on the western and northern foreshores of Jervis Bay, on the south coast of New South Wales. The park is close to the town of Huskisson.

Visitor facilities are provided in the Greenfield Beach section of the park, including toilets, showers and walking tracks.

The park was gazetted in 1995 as "Jervis Bay National Park (NSW)" to avoid confusion with nearby Booderee National Park in the Jervis Bay Territory, then known by the same name. Part of Jervis Bay itself is reserved as Jervis Bay Marine Park.

Jervis Bay National Park is 48.57 km² in size and is managed by the New South Wales Department of Environment and Climate Change.
