Henderson Beach State Park

Welcome to Henderson Beach State Park

Pristine white sugar sand beaches and more than 6,000 feet of natural scenic shoreline border the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Shifting sand dunes and coastal scrub provide habitat for a wide variety of plants, birds, and mammals. Boardwalks provide access to the beach for swimming, sunbathing, and fishing. Six pavilions allow for picnicking and grilling. Outdoor cold showers are available for rinsing off after a day at the beach.  A playground is the first stop on our nature trail and is sure to be a success with the kids. The nature trail provides visitors a rare glimpse of the coastal dune ecosystem and abundant wildlife and is pet friendly. Visitors can enjoy truly breathtaking sunsets while relaxing by the warm crystal-clear water of the Gulf of Mexico.

Camping at Henderson Beach State Park provides 60 campsites that are located in our secondary dune system. The sites include water and electric hookups with a central dump station. Each camping loop has access to air conditioned and heated bathhouse facilities and coin operated laundry machines. A separate beach access boardwalk with outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand is included in our campground area.

Henderson Beach is A.D.A accessible and includes beach wheel chair availability.

Annual special events include Coastal Cleanups in April and September, Fishing Clinics and Star Gazing throughout the season. Other events and ranger programs are available throughout the rest of the year.
