Family Time at the Grouper

  • 5 of 5

Our first time stay at Fishcamp was great! We stayed at the Grouper and were so impressed by the amenities, cleanliness, accommodations and grounds. Everything we needed was provided! The owners have thought of everything from a fully equipped kitchen to board games. It was a home away from home. We enjoyed watching our kids play in the pond, and though it was a hot day all the oak trees provided a lot of shade. My son even fell asleep in the hammock for a couple of hours. The place is simply peaceful and we look forward to visiting again soon!

Beautiful, Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for the wife and kids. Very Clean and well maintained. Turtle feeding was a plus, and even going exploring along the back of the property for deer and other wildlife. Close enough for everything you need yet just far enough away. Was the wifes first trip to rockport and surrounding area, and with the impression the Grouper made, she is already planning on returning. Thank you for everything, we are looking forward to our next trip.

Peaceful and Adorable!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome Place. Etremely Clean. Im a flight attendant and stay in many hotels and was beyond impressed of how extremely clean it was. My kids loved feeding the sweet turtles off the dock in the mornings and evenings. The Washer and dryer was very nice as well. I came home with no dirty laundry for once!!!! We were able to catch up with great friends and grill. Great time. Highly recommed this for a peaceful family or couple get away.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Grouper at Fishcamp Rockport. You can tell the owners put a lot of care into the cabin. There are lovely furnishings and neat ole fishing photos on the walls. We were greeted with fresh lilies and delicious chocolate chip cookies! There were plenty of supplies like fresh towels, tp, pt. We never had to worry about it. We had 2 adults and 3 kids. The master bed is big and comfortable. Nice sheets, comfy bed. The upstairs loft was perfect for the kids to sleep and play in their own space. The washer/dryer were used and very helpful. The pond and yard area were great. The kids loved feeding the turtles, seeing the morning ducks, and exploring the grounds. The adults loved sitting on the porch , using the grill (plenty of propane too), and playing board games. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Thanks so much for a great spring break!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Rockport and I can't believe I never knew about this place! The house smelled amazing when we walked in. It was CLEAN, and very welcoming. The decor is perfect if you're looking for that "cabin in the woods" feel. The pond, landscaping, and trees made it feel so quaint and peaceful. The kids LOVED the upstairs room and did not want to leave. We adults were able to stay up and play music and enjoy our time after the kids went to bed. We were never bothered by the owners, even though they remained onsite. There were snacks provided at no charge, and we were welcomed and treated so well by the owners.

We WILL be back for certain. And I've shared our experience with all of our friends and family. What these guys are doing, Rockport needed. We loved having a safe, quiet, place to return to after going to Oysterfest.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Both times we have stayed here have been very enjoyable. The setting is not too far away from everything but so beautiful. My grandson woke me up saying "Let's go feed the turtles ". I would recommend Fishcamp Rockport to anyone.
