Create an itinerary including Rockport State Park
Rockport State Park is a popular reservoir and campground located 15 miles east of Park City. Activities include fishing, water skiing, wake boarding, paddle boarding, and camping.

The Rockport area was colonized in 1860. It was named for the rock fort built to protect settlers from Indian uprisings. About 200 people lived there until the land was purchased in 1957 by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation for construction of the Wanship Dam. Rockport Reservoir is about three miles long and one-half mile wide. At an elevation of over 6,000 feet, it covers more than 500 acres.

Many wildlife species call Rockport home. They include mule deer, chipmunks, jackrabbits, cottontails, yellowbelly marmots, badgers, raccoons, weasels, fox and Uinta ground squirrels. Elk, moose, coyote, bobcat and cougar live in the area, but are seldom seen.

Rockport State Park opened to the public as a state park in 1966.

  • This is an absolutely beautiful place! Me and a bunch of friends met here with kayaks and paddle boards and it was fantastic. The views were great, the water was cold and the sun was shining. Generally I never expect much from bathrooms at state or national parks, but I gotta say, these bathrooms (pit toilets) were some of the cleanest I've ever seen. It felt as sanitary as it possibly could've been! I was able to purchase a Utah State Parks pass (which is pro-rated for 2022), and talk to a park ranger about some rules. Keep in mind that you need to have life jackets on your person or on/in your vessel if you're going out!!
  • I spent the last year learning archery on their 3D range. It's so much fun. Of course the reservoir is too! The old church is gorgeous and we're planning our vow renewal to be there next year. I want to give it 1 star just to keep it secret
