Sea Rim State Park Overview:
A mix of marsh and beach, Sea Rim State Park isn’t a typical beach destination. However, this state park, which is located just south of Beaumont/Port Arthur is a nature-lover’s delight. Bird-watchers and beach-goers often co-exist on this stretch of sand, which is the northern-most beach in Texas.
What to Do at Sea Rim State Park:
Sea Rim State Park is comprised of two units - D. Roy Harrington Beach Unit and Marshlands Unit. Each of these units has their own distinct characteristics. The Beach Unit offers 2 miles of open beach access, which allows for primitive camping, as well as campsites with electric and water, restrooms with showers, picnic areas, two nature trails, observation decks, and beach access for fishing, swimming, hiking, shelling, bird watching and mountain biking. The Marshlands Unit is only accessible by boat. A boat ramp is available for canoes, kayaks and small boats. Primitive campsites are located throughout the marsh.
