Had a nice walk here, just outside Rockport, even firm paths, dogs welcome but kept on leads! nice seafront area, lots of birds and wildlife, worth a stroll.

This park is well worth a visit. It’s $10 to park your car. The old granite quarry is fascinating and the walks around it encompass a rugged beach and woodland.

I suggest reading up on the park before going. It was a quarry and there are different items still around that were made from the stone. The quarry is now filled with water and it is right on the ocean. There is also a light...More

Extremely interesting state park. Excellent outdoor signage explaining the history of the granite mining industry. A very short walk, flat ground, easy walking.

Definitely worth a visit if in Rockport. Views are beautiful. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Would not recommend flip flops

Park was a great hiking area, trails lead to ocean and great views. Good size water pools with wildlife to view leading out to the main attraction of the ocean and wonderful rocks.

Head down the path towards the right to see the massive "sea rocks" - gorgeous. And don't miss the chance to build your own "inuksuk" in the protected area further to the west (left, facing the sea). (After visiting, you'll also enjoy the short video...More

If you come to Rockport than plan on spending a few hours here. Great place to explore with kids. I would not recommend strollers but you could walk it with babies in a back pack. It is dangerous if you have toddlers that run off...More

I use GPS or Google maps. As mentioned by another, parking is limited due to very small lot. Best go on a week day and even better in the off season!
