Know Before You Go
Effective May 21, 2021: Henderson Beach State Park is popular in the summertime. During peak hours of visitation, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., you may experience long lines. When the park reaches maximum capacity, it will close for a short time and reopen when sufficient space is available.
Welcome to Henderson Beach State Park
Enjoy a majestic shoreline anchored by 30-foot, snow-white sand dunes where basking in the Florida sun or wading into warm gulf waters is the order of each and every day.
No need to daydream — Henderson Beach makes this a reality. This protected strip of the Emerald Coast isn’t just for relaxation. Fishing, a nature trail and 60 campsites connected to the beach via boardwalk are among this park’s featured areas.
This special place was established for the preservation and protection of the area’s natural features and public enjoyment, the last remaining coastal scrub area in Destin.
The park also provides beautiful campsites, and it’s a great place for events like weddings and family reunions.
