Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

SPECIAL NOTICE: On 8/25/17, the Texas Gulf Coast was hit by a Category 4 hurricane (Hurricane Harvey) that made landfall over Rockport. After a formal damage assessment of our property and with a heavy heart, it has been decided that Fishcamp Rockport will close indefinitely.

FISHCAMP ROCKPORT – Located behind the main house, these charming guest cottages sit pond-side under the oaks in a peaceful country setting.

Our guest cottages (The GROUPER & The PERCH) have each been tastefully decorated with a nautical theme and have all the comforts of home. You'll love the unique floor plans, comfortable interior furnishings and the overall vintage feel. There are numerous relaxing locations on the property to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Each cottage has its own private deck and upper level balcony. Plus, there’s a shared gazebo with a dockside seating area that offers great opportunities for bird watching and enjoying the native wildlife.

Our beautiful property is located on the Live Oak Peninsula with Copano Bay to the North and Aransas Bay to the South. The nearest public boat ramp is just down the road at Cove Harbor Marina. Our guests always tell us that it’s much nicer than they expected. We invite you to come and experience the simple pleasures of FISHCAMP ROCKPORT!

Bring the extended family, a group of friends or your book club… for an exceptional stay in both of our cottages. (Booking both the GROUPER & the PERCH together can accommodate up to 10 guests total)

An AWESOME weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Fishcamp's Grouper Cottage with excitement......and the place surpassed all expectations! This cottage is perfect.....calm and serene, yet fun and adventurous! It is very clean and decorated to perfection, but also comfortable in every way. We have 2 boys and they had a GREAT time exploring inside and out! Fishcamp Rockport is located close to Rockport Beach, shopping and restaurants, but far enough away to feel like it's own resort. I was able to communicate with the owners easily, although everything is well planned and laid out. We really enjoyed this weekend. I highly recommend Fishcamp! We will be back!

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Easy access to Port A, Aransas Pass, Rockport and Fulton. Fred and Jason thought of everything in putting the Grouper together. The pond was so tranquil and peaceful. We are hoping to visit again in the future.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The cookies were tasty, the house was extremely clean, and we loved the pond. Also, the owner was kind enough to UPS my husband's wedding ring that we thought we lost. We will definitely be back.

Thank you!

Great First Trip to Rockport

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Rockport and a large part was due to the excellent stay at the Grouper. This is a beautiful property and off the beaten path which is what we were looking for. The house was very clean and smelled great when we arrived. The owners are very quick to respond to any issues or questions and truly care about making sure you have a great experience there at Fishcamp. The kids were asking to come back to "our Rockport house" even before we left on the last day because they enjoyed it so much. We will be back and will always stay at Fishcamp Rockport.

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.
