Sea Rim State Park

This post is from August 2015

Several years ago I read an article about Sea Rim State Park on the SE coast of Texas.

      View from my campsite... low tide

I decided to head down and see this park, but would only be staying one night. I would have liked to stay longer, but I was on my way to meet with my family on South Padre Island. 

This park is in an out of the way secluded area. A place to relax on the beach, walk along the shore or to fish. There are also several kayaking trails. 

"Its where the marsh meets the gulf" 

You drive right through some refineries to get here - the benefit of that is low gas prices. 

The road heading west toward the Galveston ferry is permanently closed, so there is only one way in/out and you have to backtrack. 


  1. wasn't aware that road had closed permanently...

  2. That road has been out for many years. Several hurricanes ate the beach up. And Sea Rim is one of my favorite places. We also visit Big Tree and often take a birding trip on the Skimmer to see the Whooping Cranes. And of course we paddle and see whoppers from our kayaks.

  3. Those warm Texas beaches are beginning to look pretty inviting from the cold of Utah.
