    We had a wonderful experience at Henderson State Park. Peaceful paradise in the middle of a bustling tourist town! Bathrooms were clean & Park host was friendly. We would recommend it to anyone looking for all campers.

    First, we did not camp or stay here. We stayed in Niceville, FL and went to the beach at the Henderson State Park in Destin. It was a great experience because it was clean, very clean. The restrooms were in order and there were plenty...More

    The park was the best place to be in Destin Beach, especially if one wishes to escape all the crowds. The beach is long and wide, and a great place to walk. Buy your Florida State Park seasonal pass and save!

    Place is well taken care off, my family will be back here again, our site is probably 5 minute away from the beach. Beach is not crowded at all. Beats the crowd on the condo populated beach . Facilities is very clean.

    I know it's a day late and dollar shot about getting back to you, but I don't remember the rates per day, I do though remember we stayed her in May 2016 for 6 days for only $210.

    Is tent camping in July possible in Destin or on the Florida panhandle? Anywhere you can tent camp with an ocean breeze? Just for a few nights. I have electric fans and would probably spend much of the day at the beach. Basically I'm looking for shaded tent area, pretty close to a Florida panhandle beach with blue water, elec and water hook ups. IF camping in a tent anywhere on the panhandle in July is even possible without being complexity miserable at night. Warm is ok. Camped at the state park in Gulf Shores in late May, which was 70's, and know those yellow flies are awful! Is that an issue here? Will have plenty of big spray, if it works in July. It worked great there but was not swearing all day long. Some folks here say there is no shade for tent camping but the website makes it sound like the whole park is 'shady'. Any input? Anything else to do in the area? Shopping for those that want to? Water park? Bar with Pina Coladas? Would love to have more facts about tent camping before making the 6 hr trek from New Orleans! (Ideally would love to tent camp in fall but in summer rent a pop-up (or rv) with ac without spending an arm and a leg! Any info?) I see there is an 'rv share' site, but both parties have to have rvs. If there were an Airbnb swap/share with folks with an rv that would be awesome! Thanks for any advice!

    I can't help you with your weather concerns - we've only been in Florida in winter or spring, never in the middle of summer. I will say the spaces in Henderson have a lot of lush greenery surrounding them. No real shade... More
