Henderson Beach State Park

This is a very nice park right on a beutiful beach. From the day use parking area, the beach is a short walk over a boardwalk. The beach has the most beutiful white sand.

If we were in the area again, we would only stay here if the other beach parks were full due to the noise.

The only downside to this park is the noise. We visited in late December and saw a tour helicopter flying over the beach every few minutes. I imagine it's a pretty nice flight, but the volume and frequency was a bit much for us.

The other source of noise was the nearby road. There's quite a bit of fast moving traffic on the road that runs paralell to the campground. The road noise was noticable, but not too bad, except when an exceptionally loud car or truck drove by. Unfortunately, this happened quite often.

When we visited in December, the water was a bit too cold for swimming. There was a storm nearby which made the waves a bit rough. This forced them to put up the red flag warnings.

The upside of the nearby storm was the clouds we saw at sunset. The colors were amazing as they bounced the setting sun's rays. We were able to get some great pictures.

There is a daily use fee of $6 per vehicle but your overnight camping fee includes the daily use fee.

The campground is within walking distance of the beach and the walk is fairly flat and mostly on a boardwalk.

The 60 campsites are realitively close together, however, the vegetation between the sites provides a good amount of privacy. We walked the campground loops and found most of the sites level and paved with gravel.

The campground is laid out with 2 double loops. Each set of loops shares a bathhouse.

The bathhouses are clean and well maintained. They each had free hot showers, flush toilets and laundry washers/dryers.

Dumpsters are located in each set of loops and there is a dump station with flush water near the entrance.

There are lots of stores nearby this park. We found a Walmart, Publix, Home Depot, and a few other stores within a few miles. You won't have any trouble finding anything you need.
