The Rockport State Park is located in northern Utah, where visitors can camp in one of five different campgrounds. At Rockport State Park, campers can enjoy either developed or primitive camping. Campers have the option to camp in tents or RVs. Campground areas are pet-friendly, and they provide access to restrooms and showers, although pets are not allowed in those buildings.
Boat-in camping is also a possibility for those who want to go that route.
The campgrounds are open year-round. In the summer, you can enjoy boating and fishing in the lake. The most common fish in the lake are trout and bass, which draw in many visitors. During the winter months, the trails make a great spot for snowmobiling, and you can even go ice fishing.
The area is home to Wanship Dam, and the reservoir is about three miles long by one and a half miles wide. The park elevation is at about 6,000 feet, which is why the area is great for winter sports like cross-country skiing. Plus, there are nearly 800 acres to be explored in the park.
Many visitors enjoy birdwatching in the camping areas, as there are many different bird species living in the region. Other campers like to utilize the fish-cleaning station and picnic areas on site. There is also a church in the park for those who don't want to miss out on a service during their camping trip.
Kayaking and canoeing are also options for those who wish to get on the lake. If you are into hiking, the trails in the area allow for scenic views that can be enjoyed with your dog. There are lots of wild animals in the park, however, so be cautious. Know what to do if you happen to encounter a coyote, fox, bobcat, cougar, elk, or moose. You may also see small animals like badgers and raccoons living in the area.
