Sea Rim State Park

Sea Rim State Park

Where marsh grasses meet the surf, you’ll find an abundance of life displayed along a five-mile stretch of beach and wetlands.

Texas Parks and Wildlife was provided $2 million for the recovery of Sea Rim State Park by the 81st Legislature. With these funds, the department has developed a master plan to restore the park in a two phase process. The first phase will include construction of some park facilities over the next two years. In the interim, we have opened the park on a limited basis: Day Use and primitive camping (no electricity available). A permit is required to utilize the park.

If you are planning on visiting the park, please consider the following information:

  • Park fees are collected through a self pay system; campsites are only reservable upon arrival at the park. Please plan ahead and bring the correct change as none is available on site.
  • Only a few facilities currently exist at the park (i.e.: portable toilets, outside rinse off showers, potable water, trash receptacles, and self pay check in stations).
  • Come prepared to be self-sufficient
  • State Park Rules and Regulations are being enforced by State Park Police Officers.
  • If you have an emergency, call 911

Hunters: Sea Rim State Park allows hunting via an on-site registration system that works on a first come first serve basis. No hunters area allowed in the area before 4:30 a.m. on hunt days. Hunters must obtain an Annual Public Hunt permit prior to arriving at the Park.

Things to Do

Activities include camping, wildlife observation, birding, beach combing, walking the Gambusia Nature Trail (a boardwalk through the marsh), canoeing, kayaking, beach swimming, fishing and public waterfowl hunting (in season). The park includes 5 miles of open beach.

If you plan to swim at the park, read through our swimming safety tips before you come.
