I loved Henderson beach state park! Very clean, also felt very safe. Restrooms and outdoor showers to wash the sand off. Only 6 dollars to get in, and good for all day.

I sure did not mind the few $$ to get in. The beach was very clean, that's what you pay for. Recommend it, will return if ever in the area again.

What a great and clean beach. Good clean restrooms and a well taken care of beach. Although it costs $6 per car, it's worth it. Enjoy.

The park admission may filter some folks away. Long, clean beach with nature walks. Nice. Go, and stay away from hustle and bustle.

We preferred going to the beach at Henderson park while in Destin! The nature trail was short and not remotely located so did not see any wildlife. Did see a lot of pelicans, sand pipers and gulls on the beautiful beaches. Great rest rooms!!!

Nice paved path to the ocean! Sand is like sugar, ocean like bath water, camp ground private and secluded. Highly recommended to all campers. 2 days was not enough
