Henderson State Park - Destin Florida

Wondering how many of you have been there?We are finally taking our last trip for a 2 night stay until the end of October of this year.(then we are back on the road for another 4 months of fun.)That place is really hard to get in to.I was lucky to find an opening for those nights.It is a very good spot to camp cause it is right in the middle of town and all the campsites are always full.

I really like that state park also with very nice sites and walking distance to the beach. We went last year for the first time and enjoyed it.

I am hoping to find an opening there again soon also.

We would also hope to stay at the state park in Panama City with the close location to the beach although the sites are not quite as nice as Henderson SP.

Thumbs up Great park....

This is one of my two "home" parks....it's 13 miles from our place and is just fantastic! I actually liked it better than Topsail!! All sites are gravel, although the firepits seemed to be shoved in to the corners of the sites-so you are unable to get chairs all around it. And small jets land at a little airport not far away. But other than that, great park. Super Walmart is right across the street, but you don't seem to realize how close you are to it all. Wonderful park for bikes/scooters/skates, etc. Not to mention the beautiful beach!

Absolutely fabulous! One of our favorite spots to camp so far. You will most likely fall in love with it as well. Get reservations early and often!

I was at Topsail last month, we were driving by Henderson SP and I asked if I could drive through to see the sites, they said I had to pay for a day pass. I said thanks anyway, I only wanted to drive though and they could see I was staying at Topsail. In Canada if you are camping in a Provincial Park, you can visit another Provincial Park without paying extra. Heck with Southern hospitality, it's a business right?

Park

Well we just got back a few hours ago and I have to say that this is a really nice park to go to.It is no wonder that you can not get into here so easily because the area is just incredible.
We plan on coming back here sometime in the winter to just hang out for a nights when it slows down a bit from the tourists.
I did have one problem though.I left the awning up that night and totally forgot to lean it on one side and it rained very hard.So hard it woke me up and when I looked out the window I noticed the awning was collecting water on it.I put my raincoat on to go out side to remove the water and just as I had gotten out the solid aluminum bar just bent to a 45 degree angle from the weight of the water and it all run off.I was so mad at myself for forgetting something like this that is so important to do.The next morning I tried to fix it temporarely but could not get it completly staight so I got the hack saw and cut it short so I could close the awning back up.That morning I ordered another bar for only $28.00 which should be here in a couple more days.I guess this is a good one for the Hall of Shame.It must have been alot of water because when we tried to bend the bar back straight...It took the two of us just to get it to at least bend and that alone wore us out.

Devo,
Is that a great state park or what? How did your little girl enjoy the beach and the experience? Better get reservations early for winter as well. Glad you had a great time. One of our favorites for sure.

We were at Henderson beach a couple of yrs back, and a Water Spout was spotted and a severe thunderstorm warning was issued. Theymade evryone evacuate the park. Luckily we had a ride with friends up to Panama City, but we had to leave our Airstream motorhome in the park. There was only a short notice as the skies got black and lightning and wind raged. We sat out the storm in a brick building, and when we returned hours later i expected the worst.
Not a drop of water in our 23 yr old AS and no wind damage of any kind. We enjoyed the rest of our stay in the beautiful park and i highly recommend it as well as Topsail.
Drive a bit further, and try Gulf State park in Alabama also..

You just gotta love those sugar white sand beaches and blue water. What a treat!

White sands

I am very fortunate to see it everyday where I live.I am about 3 blocks from the beach and I still can not get enough of it.
