We went on a long trip with multiple stops at different campgrounds. This has to be one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at. Truly a hidden gem that we were lucky enough to reserve after a cancellation. The camp sites are spacious and secluded. We could not see other campers from our site. The beach is a... More

Camp here every year we love the park and the access to Walmart and Destin in general. We have been coming here for over ten years and it gets more and more crowded every year. The vollenter staff takes there time at the window chatting to everyone like there is no one waiting in a 30 min line to get... More

I almost didn't write this review because I didn't want you to know what an awesome place this is! We've camped in our RV at many places, and I think this may be the nicest. The beach is gorgeous, the campground is immaculate, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the sites are clean and level. In fact we had... More

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
