The Rockport Beach Park is the best beach in the Rockport but I have seen much better beaches in Texas. The beach needed some cleanup. There was lots of seaweed. If you are looking for nice seashells, this is not the beach for you.

We were there for a desination wedding: wedding ceremony on the beach followed by catered dinner in the saltwater pavillion. Beautiful location. Bathrooms need to be updated/cleaned/painted.

We truly enjoyed the shallow water for our young kids. The water was clear and not full of algae. It didn't get crowded until Saturday but that was expected with many people enjoying Spring Beach. We parked in the free area and had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and everyone cleaned up after themselves. It was also nice to see all of the windsurfers and sailboats out. We will return again soon.

We paid and drove in the first time as we didn't know what all it offered, but on a return visit, we parked outside the gate and walked in from the pet-friendly area. The birds were so loud! Fun to listen to and observe for awhile. Not busy on the chilly day we walked and sat to read on the beach, which was A-OK with us. The beach and entire park is very well kept. Bathrooms are clean too! $5 to get in is a bit much for visitors like use but locals can buy a season pass. It all supports the park, so worth it I guess.

You have to pay $5 just to drive out the short road- even if you don't stop. We have going there for 40 years- taken our kids there. Now the snowbirds have ruined it and tried to make it "Not Family Friendly".
