Very nice, small state park on the gulf, this is a hidden gem. You have to want to be here, getting here is a nice drive south of Port Arthur. Staff is friendly, helpful. Sites are mostly curved pull thru's, some back ins, very generous sized and well spaced. No shade, but awesome water views. Electric was steady, water pressure was about 60PSI and tastes great for a beachside park. Bring your supplies, you are 10 miles to the nearest store. You can hear coyotes howl at night, see owls flying. They have a wonderful boardwalk trail thru the marsh water and grasses. Bird watching is very good here. Nice walkway to beach. Beach was clean, fairly quiet while we were here. Only odd thing was that dump station was about mile down road on other side of the road, so hauling a tote would be a challenge. We would stay here again. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Motorhome.

There are 13 nicely paved campsites, 10 of which are pull-thru with W&E, 50 & 30 amp. We stayed in site 15 one of the pull-thru sites with good hook-ups of water and 50A power. There is about 2 miles of drive-able beach and beatiful views and .75 miles nice raised walkway for bird watching. We walked on the beach (which is hard packed for easy driving) and found a few nice shells. The mosquitoes were so bad that we decided to leave early rather than to fight them for another night. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Motorhome.

We were in 50A site #9. Probably the best site in the park. Short walk to beach. Remote park, so take what you need before arrival. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park has been restored. There are 13 nicely paved campsites, 10 of which are pull-thru with W&E, 50 & 30 amp. Very good tasting water. Dump station in the park. No showers. Vault toilet at one end of camping area. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach and excellent beach access via boardwalk. No vehicles allowed on the beach area at the end of the boardwalk. There is about 2 miles of drive-able beach and primitive beach camping available for RV's under about 30' or tents. I don't understand the previous very negative reviews. It is no secret this SP is in the middle of nowhere. Also being 100 yards from the water, if the wind blows there is nothing to stop it. Your RV will rock or your tent will be blown around. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Motorhome.

We had to drive up one side of the Intracostal Waterway to get over a bridge to come back down the other side to head to Sea Rim State Park. This park was destroyed by Hurricane Ike (2008) and they are just starting to put money back into it now. It is really pretty sitting on the Gulf of Mexico but so much of the park is underwater and under construction. Texas charges you an entrance fee and $10 to stay in a primitive site. I really don’t think they should charge a fee to get in at all, but it does sit on the Gulf, and it is very peaceful. There are 4141 acres of marshland here with 5.2 miles of beach. The state purchased this from an oil company in 1972. Sea Rim refers to the portion of the Gulf shoreline where marsh grasses meet the surf. It is on the bird migration trail, so a lot of birders come here. There were two other campers here: one from Washington State, and the couple stayed here three years ago and told us it was worse then, but they have been working on it. The wife loves to walk the beach and collect shells and did she get some good ones. The map of the park showed that before it was destroyed there were two camping areas without electric, two beaches, picnic areas, boating, an interpretive center and a number of trails. I am sure when they get this finished it will be a great State Park again! First night that bugs finally came out and bothered us! It’s a long drive down from Port Arthur and if you are looking for diesel, fill up before you get to Port Arthur. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Motorhome.

It is out in the middle of nowhere with only one way in and one way out, via hwy 87 and a very tall MLK Bridge. Bring what you need because nearest supplies are about 30 minutes away. Pay on an honor system at the gate. Unfortunately, this park is still showing destruction from previous storms, so it still needs some upkeep. We stayed overnight in the parking lot because we could not get down on to the beach due to the road being washed out from a recent storm. And good thing we didn't because the winds really picked up over-night and became quite strong by next day, 40-50 mph gusts, so we had to leave. I think it would have been an OK place to stay if you are a beach person. You can camp right on the sand and walk out in to the ocean. But make sure the weather is on your side. Must be completely self contained as they have no hook-ups or facilities. And, come prepared for noseeums and mosquitoes. Lots of them. I would have given a higher rating if I could have stayed longer and on better conditions. We would return if the weather was good. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First let me saw that hurricanes have wiped this place out. Except for garbage and few garbage cans and a paved partial lot or 2 there is nothing here. We decided to check it out since we boondock a lot. I couldn't believe Texas considers this an active park and actually charges you to stay here. We had some somewhat rude rangers come by and tell us we couldn't have our dog off leash. Really? There is nothing and no one here and it's a garbage pit. At least we pick up after our dog. And I have never seen a worse infestation of mosquitoes. Never. Don't stay here, it's not worth it even if it were free. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
