The Great Outdoors

There is an overwhelming number of parks, beaches, and recreation areas in the Florida Panhandle, as well as the fabulous Emerald Coast where Henderson Beach Campground sits. When you rent an RV near Henderson Beach Campground, you will have the opportunity to visit many of these places without driving very far; however, since Henderson Beach Campground is part of the larger Henderson Beach State Park, you'll find plenty to enjoy right outside your door. The park has beautifully maintained boardwalks traversing the towering sand dunes to connect the parking area and the pristine beaches. There is even a nature center at the park where guests may learn about sand-dwelling critters, ocean mammals, and migratory birds that call the park home.Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park is another coastal treasure found to the north on the Choctawhatchee Bay. This bayou park has extraordinary archaeological sites dating back centuries to the days when local native tribes thrived in small communities by the shore. Biking, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and fishing are excellent ways to make use of the facilities, especially if you have an RV rental and are hoping to stay for a night or two at the campground on-site. Eden Gardens State Park is located farther east of Henderson Beach Campground. This historic site is home to an old plantation, with magnificent columns, white verandas, and antique French furniture. The home was built in 1897 and has equally gorgeous gardens and forests surrounding it.The Gulf Islands National Seashore is another must-see spot when you're camping at Henderson Beach Campground, as this string of barrier lands stretches along the Gulf Coast from Mississippi to Florida. This jaw-dropping seashore demonstrates what the entirety of Florida must have once looked like before human settlement, with untouched beaches and mesmerizing ecosystems teeming with wildlife of all kinds.

Exploring the City

The seaside town of Destin is the closest city to Henderson Beach Campground. There you can explore the town and see some exciting spectacles, like the lovely Grand Boulevard Farmers Market and the Big & Juicy Farmers Markets. Few places in this coastal city convey the inviting atmosphere and warmth of Destin like these two markets, where you can buy locally made crafts, fresh produce, artisan foods, and listen to live music too.There are shopping plazas and outlets for those who like to shop, plus helicopter tours, fishing boat charters, and a whole lot more to check out throughout the year. The Destin History & Fishing Museum is perhaps the best place to learn about the town’s past and the local culture, particularly its rich history massively supported by its fishing industry. The museum pays homage to the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” a title bestowed on the town thanks to its bounty of large fish, many of which are mounted in the museum.Up in Niceville, you can get some more fun in with golf courses, nature parks, breweries, diners, and more. The Mattie Kelly Arts Center features a wide range of nationally touring musicals and Broadway shows, a truly sophisticated cultural offering in the Florida Panhandle. When you rent an RV near Henderson Beach Campground, there is much more you can do if you take your campervan rental to Panama City, Pensacola, or any other towns along the Gulf Coast.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
