Henderson Beach State Park

At Henderson State Park, you'll find pristine sugar white sand beaches and more than 6,000 feet of natural scenic shoreline bordering the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Sand pines, scrub oaks, and dune rosemary dress up the park and a nature trail provides visitors a rare glimpse of the coastal dune ecosystem and abundant wildlife. Boardwalks provide access to the beach for swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. Four large and two small pavilions allow for picnicking and grilling. A playground is the first stop on our nature trail and is sure to be a success with the kids. Pet friendly and wheelchair A.D.A. accessible ensure that every member of your family can enjoy this special stretch of beach.

Henderson Beach State Park provides 60 campsites that are located in our secondary dune system. The sites include water and electric hookups and access to air conditioned and heated bathhouse facilities. A separate beach access boardwalk with outdoor showers and a playground are included in our campground.

Visitors can enjoy truly breathtaking sunsets while relaxing by the warm crystal clear water of the Gulf of Mexico.

Henderson Beach State Park is approximately 65 miles west of Panama City Beach.
