Stayed for 7 nights at Henderson Beach State Park and loved everything about it. Great site with lots of greenery and foliage around making it very quiet and private. Bath house was air conditioned and super squeaky clean every day. The walk to the beach, on a great boardwalk, is about 1\4 mile so grab a cart or wagon to... More

We saw the this beach was one of the top things to do in destin according to tripadvisor, and we were not dissatisfied at all! Easy parking ($6 to park, but it's worth it!). Easy access to a uncrowded beach. Clean beautiful beach with showers and bathrooms to use. Pure beach, no resort activities or touristy stuff to muck things... More

I went to Destin for spring break. We stayed at Tops'l and the beach was super crowded so we decided to go to the park. We drove up (the roads are nicely paced and paid $6.00 for our carload of people. It's a short walk to the boardwalk. You want to pack anything you prefer to have with you while... More

The beach was awesome, the water was a clear green and the a and was white. However, I would have like to have seen lifeguards, more trash recepticles and closer portable potties/restrooms. My family had a great time. Would go again!

The beach is amazing, wasn't even crowded. There is a code to get in after sunset so only campers are here. The restrooms were cleaner than the ones at my house. $33 a night after taxes but worth it. You can also do laundry and there is a dish sink. Loved it.

Stayed here for the weekend while my daughter had a cheerleading competition. As mentioned in several other posts, while the campground is right in the heart of a retail district in Destin, it is wonderfully secluded by the natural landscaping. The bath houses were very well cared for, and the sites were simply huge. At several, we had to look... More

This is our second stay in this park. Big spacious sites. Great walkway to the beach. Laundry is best I have seen at a state park. We were in Loop C. Close to retail shopping. Within bicycle riding distance and walkable. Biking trail along highway. Showers have good hot water and are clean.

This campground, as stated, is right off the main highway and across that highway from WalMart and an entire commercial district. Once you drive in, though, it is beautiful. Trees and shrubs provide a lush, natural, private setting. Sites are quite obscured from site and shaded. Efforts have been made to make the park accessible (paved walkways, ramps to the... More

This state park seems like it wouldn't be much when you drive up, as it's almost right in the middle of Destin (Walmart is across the street). You will be pleasantly surprised, though. The sites are wonderfully set up, and very private. The beach is beautiful. A great place to spend the night!
