Henderson Beach State Park Campground
Reviewed 19 May 2007

My husband and I stayed at Henderson Beach State Park Campground in May of 2007. Overall it was a very good experience. The sites and bath houses are very well maintained. The beach is within walking distance from the campground and is beautiful. The hosts at the campground clean each site before it is occupied. The sites are pea gravel and the roads are paved, so there is not alot of dust and sand to get on your camper, car, etc.

It is a small park overall, with very little opportunities to observe wildlife. There are no lakes or inland water to observe birds which we missed from some of the other state parks we have stayed at.

The other "down side" is the close proximity to hwy. 98 which is a busy road. The traffic can be heard from all the campsites. Particularly in the early morning, around 6, when the traffic begins to pick up, it can wake you up if you have open windows. We camped in a popup. Also, the lights from the highway can shine on your campsite at night, depending on where your site is located.

But, all this said, we will probably return next year. We love to snorkel at the East Jetty and, of course, the crystal clear gulf waters can't be beat.

The folks who run the park do an outstanding job and the campground host are the best!
