    No dogs allowed?

    Wanted to enter the park and we’re told dogs are not allowed. No idea if this is seasonal or a permanent change just made.

    Sandy space to run!

    The Henderson Beach State Park nature trail is approximately 1 mile long, well-maintained and has several benches along the route tucked under shade trees. It starts at the backside of the children’s playground and has some hills and a few stairs on some decking about halfway through. Waste bags are provided at the start of the trail but there are no water stations so be sure to bring your own.

    Pretty nice

    It costs $6 to get in. I was holding 1 dog on my lap (I was a passenger) and they told us before we paid that we could not take dogs on the beach. They even gave her a biscuit. The walking nature trail was nice. Path is sandy most of the way. A few steps and a little hilly here and there. We enjoyed it with our 4 dogs. There was a small playground at the beginning of the trail and a few benches along the way.

    no pets on the beach

    No dogs on the beach, but that is only posted right as you go onto the beach, so no warning either. :(
