This has some great trails, it is pet friendly but your dog must be leashed! Try to plan sunset there as it is spectacular! There are seasonal restrooms! Bring a picnic and stop on the rocks or one of the picnic tables!

Learn why its called Rock port while you enjoy a scenic walk and get as close to the ocean as you want. Smooth paths, you can choose whether to do hills by deciding whether to drop down to ocean level. We got sandwiches in Rockport...More

Timing is everything. Visit a few hours after the high tide to see plenty of activity in the tidal pools on the rocky shoreline. Peaceful for the adults and plenty of rocks/tidalpools for kids to enjoy.

Halibut Point State Park is definitely worth checking out if you’re in the Rockport/Gloucester area. This is the second time we’ve been there and we find the park to be very peaceful and relaxing. It offers great views of the ocean and it’s pretty easy...More

Nice enough but watch out for the biting flies. Paying $10 to park is excessive however. Are the authorities trying to kill the tourism industry in this state?

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!
