Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Pinery is a campground and day use area on the southern tip of Rockport Reservoir in Rockport State Park. With 16 different picnic shelters that each have a table and grill, it makes a great spot for a picnic. Camping is also available in one of three sites, though the campsites are essentially the same as the picnic shelters but with fire rings. Space and privacy are limited for camping. Vault toilets and water faucets are available for campers and day users.

This is a nice location on the marshy edge of the reservoir where the river empties in. It is one of the best places in the park for spotting wildlife, which can include deer, fox, raccoons, rabbits, marmots, Uinta ground squirrels, and many kinds of migratory birds and waterfowl.

​Note: Pinery Campground is open from May 1 through October 31.
