The Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose goal is to improve and enhance guest experience at both Henderson Beach State Park and Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park through services, improved facilities and interpretive programs. All funds generated through donations, membership dues, and services offered at the park go directly to support both parks. These funds are used to make park improvements and repairs such as building projects, educational programs, equipment purchases, and interpretive displays to create an amazing experience for residents and visitors alike.
Our community of members are integral to our success on behalf of Rocky Bayou and Henderson Beach State Parks’ diverse coastal wildlife and habitats. When you join or renew your Friends of Emerald Coast State Parks membership, you ensure that vital preservation work can continue. All membership contributions are tax deductible.
