Henderson Beach State Park is gem located in the heart of Destin. With over a mile of unspoiled beach and lots of facilities it is the perfect venue for beach goers and campers. The park is meticulously maintained and offers many beachfront picnic areas with restrooms.

Very friendly staff willing to help you w/ whatever you need in the park. I had never been there. We rode our bikes to the park to explore. I look forward to visiting this park again very soon.

After looking at many beach venues, Henderson Beach was by far the prettiest and least crowded place to have a beach wedding. Anne Marie, the event coordinator was also very helpful.

If you have young kids or older family members this park has really nice picnic area and bathrooms. The value of just $5/6 bucks not to stress when my little one does the pee pee dance is worth it for me.

Beautiful beach on sunrise morning. Nice place to spend relaxing day. Restrooms close by and picnic tables to eat lunch or snack.

You will not find a nicer state park in Florida. Clean restrooms, sites are large and separated....but..... this is also the noisiest state park. Six lane highway, sirens which are normal, helicopter landing pad nearby, but if you stay in loop d be prepared for music nite at the bowling alley and people screaming from the newly constructed Henderson hotel balconies....party time.

We did not camp here, but have yearly pass to FL state parks. This is by far the most beautiful beach, clean bathrooms and picnic area, and is away from the more crowded beaches in Destin.

This place is worth entrance fee. The beach was beautiful and it was not crowded at all. Highly recommend over the other public beach access.

Although there are condos on both sides of the park, you can still find a spot that is less touristy. On Sunday there is even a beach service. I don't know if that is every Sunday. The Destin Methodist church does them .If interested you might check with the church. You can attend in swimsuit if you like.
There are lots of white sandy beaches and plenty of parking. Great place for people who want to be away from the crowd. It is very easy to get to since it is right off 98.

You have to pay to park. The beach was very clean and not too crowded. Clean bathrooms and showers. They also have a large covered picnic area....Hope to come back one day!!
