Where Gulf Meets Marsh

At the far southeast corner of Texas lies a remote and unique coastal park. Sea Rim State Park has 5.2 miles of Gulf shoreline and 4,000 acres of marshlands.

Things to Do

At this park, you can camp, go birding and beach combing, paddle in a canoe or kayak, swim, fish, hunt (in season) and walk. Stroll along the Gambusia Nature Trail Boardwalk, which takes you through the marsh.

Stay at one of 15 campsites with utilities or in our cabin. We also offer primitive camping on the beach.

Fish in the surf or in the marsh areas. You do not need a license to fish from shore in a state park. We have a boat ramp, and we loan fishing gear for use in the park. Download Sea Rim's Fishing Tip Sheet.

Paddle one of our trails, from the 1.79-mile easy trail to the 9.59-mile advanced trail. Experience the coast from a kayak or canoe. Bring your own or rent a kayak at the park. Take a virtual tour with our Interactive Trails Map.

Horseback ride on over 3 miles of Gulf Coast beachfront. Enjoy the East Beach with your favorite horse; you can primitive camp on the East Beach but we don't have any facilities, so you'll need to bring a portable pen or tether your horse to a trailer.
