Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2006 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We live 55 miles from Henderson Beach and we love it there. The ride to Destin is scenic and the Gulf waters are beautiful. The campground is clean, with gravel sites. We did not have to do a thing to level our rig. We just pulled in and presto!! The roads around the park are all paved with a bike trail. We loved riding our bikes or trikes to the public access beach in the park. The boardwalk to the beach from the campground is a nice walk. We were there in August and it was very hot and the water had a little seaweed, but that happens on the Gulf at times. We played in the Gulf water until it got too hot and came back to a clean campground shower then took a nap. Then went to a local restaurant for a great dinner. It was a perfect day! We could only stay 2 nights, but we live close enough to return often. The lock on the gate is no longer a problem. They have a convenient touch keypad and an automatic gate. You don't even have to get out of your car. The traffic on busy Hwy. 98 was not a problem. Some of the sites that are close to the road might notice the traffic noise, but we didn't even hear it. It is always nice to have shopping and restaurants convenient, in case you need to go buy some more suntan lotion or a new bathing suit. The pull through sites are great. The privacy in each camp site is an added plus. The staff and the campground host were very friendly and helpful. You have to make a reservation. Many parks on the Gulf suffered from the last few hurricane seasons so Henderson Beach State Park is growing in popularity. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
