Rockport Reservoir (also called Wanship Reservoir) is a large lake located on the Weber River midway between Kamas and Coalville. The reservoir shoreline is owned entirely by the state of Utah. Public access is unrestricted, but fees are charged to use park facilities.

Rockport is a popular ice fishing destination, especially for Perch enthusiasts anxious to catch lots of tasty Yellow Perch through the ice.
