“Pristine white, sugar sand beaches”

Henderson Beach State Park has one of Florida's most prized assets, pristine white, sugar sand beaches and more than 6,000 feet of scenic shoreline bordering the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In the midst of urban sprawl that now dominates the coastline of Florida's panhandle, Henderson Beach State Park is an unexpected oasis of exquisite natural beauty. Visitors can enjoy swimming; picnicking, fishing, camping, bicycling and nature walks.

Totally worth paying the $6 entrance fee. It offers you the magnificent views, the feeling of the warm, white, soft sand cuddling in your feet while you are walking by the sea. This place can become a space for escaping the daily routine, choosing whether to walk by the sea or within the park, enjoying the breeze of the trees surrounding your body. Crystal clear waters allow anyone to swim!! It was not overcrowded, so it offered privacy.Very well organised, including picnic tables, clean bathrooms and showers! Great for spending precious family moments!

I couldn't say enough good things about camping here. By far my favorite State Park. Love the privacy of every site, there really isn't a bad site in the whole park in my opinion. Campers Beach was never crowded and the staff were most friendly and the shower house/restroom areas were very clean.

Camped in a tent. Our family had so much fun. The water was cool and staff in the park was very friendly. The bathroom facilities was extremely clean.
