Welcome to Henderson Beach State Park.

With dolphin playing in the surf and ancient, snow white dunes in the background it’s time to get to the beach. Fall is here and cooler weather comes with it, the fall bloom is underway as well and it's time again for the migration of the monarch butterfly. Bring a book and relax on the beach, take a swim, go for a paddle, have a picnic with the Gulf of Mexico as your backdrop, or engage in a little more physical challenge of hiking the 3/4-mile nature trail and explore the ancient dune system. Don't forget to use plenty of sunscreen and keep yourself hydrated on the warm days. If you are planning a fishing trip, Fall can be a wonderful time to try your hand fishing in the surf. Please keep in mind that there is no fishing allowed in the designated swimming areas located between boardwalks A and D or between boardwalks E and F. Please stop by the Ranger Station for more information. Are you looking for more than a day visit to the park? If so, contact Reserve America at 1-800-326-3521 to reserve one of our 60 campsite. Henderson Beach State Park is a highly-desired camping location so make your reservations early. Beach Wheel Chairs are available free of charge for those who have a need for these wonderful mobility devices. Please stop by the Ranger Station for assistance in acquiring the use of a beach wheel chair. We look forward to your visit and thank you for visiting the Real Florida at Henderson Beach State Park!

Henderson Beach State Park is here to serve and meet your family's needs.

Please stop by and enjoy your park.
