Welcome to the Aransas County Navigation District.
We exist to conserve and develop natural resources, including the navigation of its inland and coastal waterways, the surface and submerged land deeded to it by letters of patent and acts of the Texas Legislature and all other land and water resources acquired for the benefit of the citizens of Aransas County.
In less complicated terms, ACND is responsible to maintain and improve public waterways and public waterfront facilities, such as harbors, boat ramps, fishing piers and the Rockport Beach.
At the current time, ACND has 5 main facilities under its purview: Rockport Harbor, Fulton Harbor, Cove Harbor, Copano Bay Boat Ramp and the Rockport Beach.

Notice the fish cleaning station will be removed and replaced with new starting on or about Jan. 19th, 2022. at HWY 35North/ Copano Bridge Boat Ramp.
Because of the harsh elements at that location and overall use the Nav. District is replacing this fish cleaning station.
Work will progress quickly but could have weather delays. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Many slips may appear to be vacant but we have multiple boaters who have made reservations and are en route from other ports.
WITHOUT A RESERVATION WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE YOUR VESSEL.
