“Beautiful State Park, Oasis in Conjested Area”

Reviewed Jul 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Beautiful state park, nice site privacy due to vegetation (some the best we have seen), nice paved trails and raised walk leading to the beach. The beach front is 1.5 miles wide; we walked to a local restaurant via the beach during our stay. There was some road/area noise (concert) during our stay, even given the distance the campgroun... more

I absolutely loved this campground. We were here for a week in Mid-February and really enjoyed it. The sites are electric and water only. Dump station available. They sites are gravel and very private with foliage hiding most neighbors and some pull through a hide the road as well. There is laundry and clean bathrooms with showers.... more

“Spacious sites and beautiful beach”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2018

I have to admit after reading the last review I was concerned about rats. I inquired at the ranger station when we checked in and was informed that they have had a problem. Our entire stay we never saw one once and we walked a lot throughout the camping loops, on the path through the woods and to the beach. We walked at various times... more

“Rats and Roadnoise”

Reviewed Feb 12, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent a total of 14 days here and although we liked the proximity to Destin and the beach, we will not be returning. After a few days, we began to notice rats in the vegetation between our campsite and the next site. We brought the issue to the attention of the park ranger who thanked us but said there was nothing that could be ... more

We were amazed at our stay. The park was well planned with space and shrubbery in between sites so you had plenty of privacy. All the spots were back in with gravel that appeared very level. You had a picnic table and a double clothesline. The bathrooms were clean and not to far to walk from our site. The boardwalk down to the beach wa... more

We LOVED this site! Our pull through site had nicely raked gravel, with a fire pit! It felt like we had our own yard! The site felt remote and private, but, was conveniently located close to the main strip, which offered restaurants, touristy beach shops, and Walmart (we bought our firewood here for $5/bundle). Because of it's convenie... more

“Spacious sites with lots of privacy.”

Reviewed Jan 28, 2017

Overall Rating

One of the most impressive things about Henderson Beach State Park is the privacy of the camp sites. Sites are spacious and surrounded by trees and dense shrubs. Our back-in site had excellent privacy and space, and many of the pull-throughs were well over 100 feet long. Although there was no sewer at our site, our stay was short enoug... more

What an awesome state park. The layout is wonderful with a limited number of RV sites, around 60 if I remember correctly, and the feeling of privacy is great! If you've never been to Destin it has the most perfect sand in the world (an yes we have been around...Bora Bora for example). You have the conveniences of Destin FL yet with ... more

We love Henderson Beach SP! The sites are wooded with shrubbery, providing your own private oasis near the beach. There is a bit of a walk to the beach from the camping area, over a well-maintained boardwalk. This may be an issue if you have accessibility problems. The beach is pristine - very clean with few crowds. This is truly a tro... more
