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!

Stayed in a tent with my bestfriend and loved it all! The bathroom and showers were always clean. The hosts were always friendly! The beach was nearby and simply beautiful! The days we were there the beach was never crowded either. I'm still day dreaming about this trip.

Henderson Bch State Park is right at the beach and close to malls and restaurants. Ideal for a vacation. Sites are very large and landscaped to provide privacy. Pull-thrus are handy with big trailers and hook-ups provided. Dump station and laundry available. Emerald green waters are just gorgeous. All this at a very reasonable cost!

Wonderful camp ground. It was crazy to feel so isolated when we were basically in the middle of a tourist town. Each individual campsite is also pretty isolated from your neighbor just feet away by the native plants and trees. We were the only ones on the beach area accessible from the campsites the walk is a bit longish but... More

In researching where to get married in Destin, we ran across HSBP and found a place for an awesome wedding. The beach was clean and perfect. The staff and park rangers were helpful. I wanted to add pictures so future brides can see the grounds. If you are thinking about Henderson, book it!

Its beautiful and clean and the staff is very nice.. Its a great place for families to bbq and enjoy the beach. They have outside showers and big restrooms and pavilions with picnic tables and grills. They close at sundown so get there early. The beach is clean and beautiful:)
