Henderson Beach State Park is a place where you can experience blue-green, sparkling waters and magnificent white beaches, creating memories for years to come. You can find tranquility on this pristine undeveloped shoreline, which is a reminder of “the real Florida."  People make the place, and our team strives to make your stay memorable.

Henderson Beach State Park is a popular camping location, so make your reservations early.

Beach wheelchairs 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 wheelchair.

One of my ways to enjoy the park is to walk our Nature Trail early in the morning, then spend the day on the beach waiting for a sunset that will be remembered for a lifetime.

We look forward to your visit, and thank you for visiting the real Florida at Henderson Beach State Park!
