General Information

Description - Rockport is a 457-acre state park noted for its old growth Douglas fir. In 1985, 305 acres of the park were designated a "natural forest."

Park facilities include a walk-in camp area with 12 sites (eight tent sites and four eight-man Adirondack shelters), three primitive camp sites, one group camp accommodating 65 people, 50 trailer hook up sites, a trailer dumping station, 33 picnic sites, a kitchen shelter and two comfort stations. Also within the park are 74 parking spaces and five miles of hiking trails.

Recreation - Picnicking, hiking and camping are some of the activities enjoyed in the park.

Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. Rockport State Park is located in an area "protected" by surrounding ocean waters and mountain ranges. Temperatures are consistently moderate, rarely topping 80 degrees in the summer and rarely falling below 30 degrees in the winter.

Annual rainfall averages 26 inches. In the summer months, and especially during July and August, the park may go for weeks without a cloud in the sky. Snowfalls occur mainly in January and February and usually total only one or two inches. Northeast winds may cause temperature extremes.

Location - Rockport State Park is located on State Highway 20, seven miles east of Concrete (one mile west of Rockport) in Skagit County.

Additional Information:
North Cascades - The North Cascade Range is a towering mass of granite spires and prehistoric glaciers. Amid these jagged peaks, you can walk in the quiet of ancient forests, swim in seas of wildflower and peer into the glass of alpine lakes. This is sacred country for casual hikers and extreme mountaineers alike.
