Henderson State Park rv campground, Destin Florida
My wife and I visited Camp Gulf rv park in Destin yesterday, we drove through Henderson state park rv campground today. It cost $6 for 3 of us in one vehicle to enter the park, and the lady at the ranger station gave us a 'tourist' pass for the campground, since we weren't camping there. It said we had 15 minutes to view the campground, and we couldn't get out of our vehicle.
The rv park was completely different from Camp Gulf, a commercial rv park on the beach. While some of the spots at CG were right on the beach, and you could see the water from some of the other campsites, there was no privacy. (That is normal in rv parks like these). The sites were very narrow and your view in most spots is the side of your neighbor's rv. I'm not complaining about it, that's just the way it is.
At Henderson park rv campground, it is VERY private. Each spot is located a fair distance from your neighbor, and most spots have lush vegetation and shade on 3 sides. It looked like your own private resort, although the thick vegetation kept you from seeing other rv's, you couldn't see anything else either. Privacy. Quiet. Inexpensive. The daily rate right now is $30 plus tax. You aren't right on the beach, but you can take a hike to it.
I am not saying either campsight is better than the other, just that they are different. And that is good.
