Beautiful State Park on 30a

Camped 2 nights over the long weekend. The campground was nearly full but our site in the lower loop was quiet and tucked into the woods. Our site was concrete but most were not, so very lucky. Bathhouse was clean and had plenty of space, even with the packed sites. Trails were well maintained and we took a beautiful walk to the beach! Only wish was that the path to the bath house would have been better lit, but that’s part of being in nature so we just brought flashlights after sunset. Cable at site was an unexpected treat for winding down in the evening!

Oasis in the middle of frenetic Destin

We camped at Henderson Beach State Park the last week of 2020.  It was absolutely beautiful with well kept grounds and clean facilities.  The beach was amazing and our site was so private.  We were on D loop, and I would recommend loop A or B as first choice.   However, all sites are very private and level.   Only 2 bars on cell service and wi-fi is only available at visitor center and bathhouse.  Would definitely stay here again.

Nice place to camp

This is a nice place to camp for up to 7 days free, but bring plenty of water because it is far away from potable water and a dump station. We camped here with a 36 foot travel trailer. Reservations can also be made on

Amazing Campground

We stayed in site 35 at the end of December. Site was level and had privacy from the neighboring sites, with electric, water and sewer hookups! Easy walk to Western Lake - some sites even back up to the lake. Longer walk to the beach/gulf, but we found the walk to be beautiful and saw quite a few birds along the way. No pets allowed on the beach - if you have a dog, ask the rangers for the brochure listing dog beaches in FL. We drove to Panama City Beach to go to the dog beach at Pier Park, which was a nice alternative. We did the Barrier Dunes Nature Trail - note that this is listed as a loop, but when we were there, it wasn’t a loop and most people we passed on the trail weren’t wearing masks. In its current state, there weren’t any gulf views from this trail. The campground was VERY quiet the whole time we were there.

Crowded but clean

Great bathrooms, stellar scene, friendly neighbors. Love this concept and if you don’t mind lots of eyes on your site, beach camping is the coolest. Our little camper van was a miniature compared to these big rigs. One outdoor pool was closed but one was covered in a huge inflatable tent. We had it all to ourselves for an evening dip. Even on a rainy day, you can’t beat the location. 25 min beach walk to Surf Hut for dinner.

Close to the beach

Was raining when we arrived on Christmas Eve and the office was closing early. Very helpful. Site #71 backs up to possum pond which has real steep sides. Don’t fall in!. Laundry and showers are open 24-7 and the camp store is fairly well stocked. Walmart is close by if need be.


All concrete roads and campsites with patio and picnic tables. No fire pits or rings. Very private feeling between camp sites with lots of trees. Lakes for fishing and a tram that runs every hour. Just a 1/4 mile south of hwy 98 in 30A.

Love this quiet, rustic place, repeatable

Firstly. Cell coverage sucks. But would repeat. Spacious, clean sites. Lots of opportunities for biking and walking

Old Florida

This campground reminds me of the Florida I knew when I was younger. Smaller, uneven sights. Nice that they've updated the bathhouses and electrical hookups. These sites are friendly to smaller campers and tents. Be sure to bring a boat or kayak, there's a great launch into the bay!

Tranquility in the hub of the panhandle.

Beautiful state park! This 60 site campground has two loops that are each divided in two. This reduces traffic driving by your campsite and increases the peacefulness! Each campsite is only a short 10 minute stroll to the amazing beach. Each site has a fire pit, water, 30/50 amp electric and a gravel surface. They are very secluded from the others thanks to the vegetation. 10 out of 10, we'll be returning!
