Copano Bay State Fishing Pier, a concession-operated state park, is a 5.9-acre park located five miles north of Rockport in Aransas County. The fishing pier, acquired by transfer of jurisdiction from the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation in 1967, was opened the same year. The old causeway was cut to aid boat traffic, so the pier now has 2500 feet on the north side and 6190 feet on the south side.
