Rockport State Recreation Area

ALPENA – The Negwegon, Rockport and Thompson’s Harbor Advisory Committee heard updates about the state parks and recreation area Tuesday, including the news that Rockport will get funding to put in backcountry campsites.

The Department of Natural Resources has allocated $5,000 to 6,000 to put four campsites in, Unit Supervisor Eric Ostrander said. They will consist of a clearing for a tent, a picnic table, fire ring and an outdoor privy, a pit toilet with three walls for privacy.
