When you think ‘roughing it’ you probably don’t think ‘setting up camp within walking distance of a Walmart,’ but that’s exactly what it means to camp at Henderson Beach (on the bright side, if you forget the GORP you can just hop across the road).

When you think ‘roughing it’ you probably don’t think ‘setting up camp within walking distance of a Walmart,’ but that’s exactly what it means to camp at Henderson Beach (on the bright side, if you forget the GORP you can just hop across the road). When camping here, though, you actually manage to forget that you’re basically in the middle of Destin. Plus, the 60 campsites have water, electricity, ground grills, and picnic tables as well as access to heated and air-conditioned restrooms with showers, dump stations for RVs, coin-operated washers and dryers, and vending machines. An escape with modern conveniences—the best of both worlds.

I stayed at Henderson Campground for one night late-May and the beach didn't feel overcrowded yet it wasn't so sparse that I felt like I was early to the party. Despite the close proximity to the highway (it's RIGHT there) I felt somewhat secluded thanks to dense foliage and campers-only beach access. You get clean bathrooms, laundry facilities and there is a short nature trail that leads to the beach. Plaques with different facts about the flora and fauna are scattered throughout the walk and there are spots to lock up your bike. There are only two tent camping sites so this books up fast. The campsite is dog-friendly, however dogs are not allowed on the beach. The only downside is I could hear cars passing on the highway at night.
