Rockport Reservoir features first-rate, year-round fishing, waterskiing, swimming, sailboarding and sailboating. It is 45 miles east of Salt Lake City near Wanship on State Route 32. Eight campgrounds offer both developed and primitive camping in a variety of settings. Ice fishing is popular in the winter.

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.
History of the Area
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.
