My family stayed at both the Henderson Beach State Park Campground and the larger Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. Although Topsail offer more amenities and value, I prefer Henderson Beach State Park for the beach. It is a much better, scenic, beach than the Topsail. Also, one can take a short walk to the beach instead of waiting and having...

Camp ground and facilities were spotless! Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it,and I will be making a return trip. It was a short walk to beach, so if u plan on ice chest to beach, take one with wheels. The dolphins are accustomed to jet skis and very interactive. Great to see them so close...

Very nice campground. Bathrooms are very clean and air conditioned. They have 2 washers and dryers for campers to use. Even though this campground says it's on the beach there a quarter of a mile walk on a boardwalk to get to beach. But it is a beautiful cemented path to the boardwalk. Highly recommend this campground. Walmart across the...

Can't say enough good things about our stay. This was the most relaxed Family Vacation ever! We had a large group including my husband and myself, our married daughter, son in law and their children ages 9 and 4, and our daughters age 26 and 16. Very spacious, secluded and clean graveled sites include a fire pit and clothes line....

Cannot say enough about the quality of this park. Second to none. Great facility, the cleanest bath houses I have ever seen at any campground. Close to everything in town. Beach has a private feel due to being for campers only. Reserve early, This is not a place you are going to visit and camp spur of the moment.

We had a fantastic time. It was out 3 years okra first trip to the beach. It wasn't crowded, the water was perfect, he had a blast playing in the sand, the facilities were clean and the park workers were friendly. Prefer this beach to one that is attached to a hotel any day. Just a beautiful beach.

Great campground! Sites are secluded and well kept. Campground is located in an ideal area of Destin/Miramar Beach. Bathrooms have AC! Beach is beautiful, but it's quite a bit of a walk from the campsites to the shore. Bring a bike or cart to tote items. We'll definitely be back!

This is a very nice park. We came to Destin a day early so we couldn't get into the park we had reservations to (Camp Gulf). I wish we would have booked the entire stay here instead. Our site is the biggest we've ever had, a pull thru site, very level and gravel. Down side..... Not full hook up and...
