After we biked we headed out to Destin, Florida for our next stop Henderson Beach State Park. Our friends could not get in here and two other couples headed west could not get in either so George talked on the phone to them and about four couples that are headed west are going to stop at our next stop Big Lagoon State Park
What can I say about Henderson State Park – stunning, stunning, stunning. Private sites, walk to the beach, bike around the roads and enjoy a beautiful sunny day with the temperature near 70. We only drove 18 miles today and tomorrow maybe 50 miles, then we will have to start to drive longer distances. We really enjoy the Florida State Parks in the panhandle region!
Wednesday, February 27 – Henderson Beach State park, Destin, Florida This campground is a gem. We enjoyed camping here two years ago in May and are enjoying it even more in February. The main problem is that if you don't have reservations you are not getting in. Others campers we have met on our trip tried to get in when we were here and they were turned away at the gate. The campground is in walking distance to the beach which is beautiful and near a Walmart, restaurants and shopping. There are 60 secluded campsites with water, electricity, wifi located in four loops. Bathhouses are clean and all have laundry facilities. The hosts work hard to keep everything clean and are very informative and willing to help with any problems. One can bike, hike on the beach or on the nature trail and nearby fishing is considered one of the best spots in the USA. It is one of the most expensive Florida State Parks but it is worth it. The day we were there the weather was great for biking, hiking and walking along the ocean.
