Arrived in Destin hours before our condo was ready so we decided to give it a shot. WONDERFUL CLEAN FACILITIES! Crystal clear water with plenty of room to spread out, cheapest entertainment all week! $6 a car load. Almost liked this beach better than at our condo! Lol! Covered pavilions were nice for lunch. Only downside was parking but we... More

We can daily to the park for the clean beach. There are bathrooms are clean. There are picnic tables under a shelter that can be use to get out of the sun for a picnic as long as they are not reserved for a wedding. There is a place to rinse off by the bathrooms. It is a great family... More

We camped at Henderson in July 2014. It is a very clean campground. The beach is a little walk from the campsites, but it is a very nice boardwalk. Most campers use beach carts to take stuff to the beach, leave it there and return to camp for lunch, and then go back to beach in the afternoon. The beach... More

White sand and turquoise water. Clean and not to crowded. Only downside is the parking. Not to much of it. Will be back next year. Already planning next trip. Nice bath house for public use. Nice restaurant on the beach. All water activities close.

Oh my goodness this beach was so gorgeous! Not crowded, very clean and very well maintained. Plenty of covered picnic areas and rinse showers available. Got to see some wild life. Would recommend and will definitely return in the near future!

We came for the day at the beach and loved it so we came 3more days. There is a picnic area under the pavilion and clean bathrooms. The water was clean and the beach was awesome. The $6 per car was very reasonable. Great place for the family.

Oh my GOD what a beautiful place!!! My only complaint is that I did not plan a longer stay. Walked the beach . Ate at "the crab trap " . Walked the beach. Watched dolphins put on a show as I sipped my morning coffee!!! Wonderfully secluded yet in the heart of Destin.

Love this state park and the campgrounds. I stay here as often as I can get in. The sites are large and well kept and you feel like you have a little privacy between you and your neighbor. Bath houses are great and always clean. It's very easy to forget that you are right across the street from a Wal-Mart... More

This is by far the absolute best State Park and Campground in Florida! Wonderful campsites with full hook-ups and you will never stay at a cleaner, more well run location. The bathroom facilities are wonderful and there is a beautiful boardwalk directly onto the sugar white sands of Henderson Beach. You will need to reserve a site several months in... More

The beach at our condo had so much seaweed in it, so we drove less than 10 minutes in Fort Walton to Henderson State Park and the $5 a day was well worth every sent, even the days we could only stay 20 minutes due to rain. It is kept clean, and offered views that matched the Caribbean! It was... More
