Sea Rim State Park, Port Arthur

3.2
Sea Rim State Park is a 4141acre state park in southeast Texas. The park is located on the Gulf of Mexico in southern Jefferson County, south of Port Arthur and just west of Sabine Pass. The park was closed for several years due to extensive damage from Hurricanes Rita (2005) and Ike (2008). The park has recently re-opened but currently has limited resources.DescriptionThe D. Roy Harrington Beach unit is the coastal portion of the park, offering beach access between the Gulf of Mexico and the mainland marshes. Swimming in the marshes is not permitted due to the presence of alligators.The Marshlands unit is located in the inland marshes of southern Jefferson County, and is only accessible by boat. The park does rent canoes and kayaks so that these areas of the park may be explored by visitors. Many species of migratory birds stop in or pass through the park, and the Marshlands unit provides observation blinds for bird watchers.McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge borders the park.Three nearby national wildlife refuges on the Texas coast - Brazoria N.W.R., San Bernard and Big Boggy - form a vital complex of coastal wetlands harboring more than 300 bird species.
Sea Rim State Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Port Arthur Edition.

  • The beach is very clean, family-friendly and not too crowded. There are decent restrooms and outdoor showers. I highly recommend doing the alligator trail. We've seen gators every time and the kids love it.
  • We love Sea Rim! Clean bathrooms, nice rinse off spot and a really cool wooded path to walk on over looking the wildlife. The beach is not trashy thanks to to multiple trash cans.
  • It was my first time there. The gentleman who is volunteering as a guide at the park office was very helpful. There is a boardwalk that goes to the beach. The view from there is spectacular. Another exciting parrt of the park is a trail that takes you through the marshes where you can see different kinds of birds, alligators,snakes etc.
  • Really cool boardwalk to see lots of blue crabs, birds, and maybe an alligator or two! A second boardwalk leads to the beach. Across the highway there are lots of kayaking trails with a boat launch, so much outdoor fun!
  • Good beach nice nature trail to see the animals. We saw lots of crabs, fish and a few alligators. Kids had a blast swimming. I will come back but next time with my kayaks.
