Rockport State Park facilities now open
Rockport State Park facilities are now open for the season. Boat docks are in place, launch conditions are optimal, and spring fishing has been great for rainbow trout. Springtime at Rockport provides outstanding opportunities for viewing wildlife. Eagles, hawks, herons and many other birds can be see on and around the reservoir. While water levels are currently dropping in preparation for a large spring runoff, the reservoir is expected to be at full capacity for the first time in eight years. Park managers are predicting excellent boating conditions throughout summer.
The park begins accepting camping reservations May 1 and may be made by calling 1-800-322-3770 or online at www.stateparks.utah.gov. Juniper Campground has 34 sites with water and electric hookups, and showers at the restroom.
New this year, Rockport Sports and Recreation offers boat rentals, food, bait and tackle, firewood, ice and other camping and picnicking supplies. Rockport Sports is located immediately south of the boat ramp and operates out of two yurts.
Fenced boat storage is also available near the boat ramp. Park hours are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. An automated gate provides security after 11 p.m. Day use entrance fees are $7 at the main entrance and $5 below the dam.
