Geography:

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.

Recreation:

This high elevation (6,000 feet) park provides great year-round fishing. Warmer weather water sports including waterskiing, swimming, sailboarding and sailboating are popular. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, and nearby snowmobile trails are popular activities during winter months.

Facilities:

Campgrounds offer developed, primitive, group and boat-in camping.
