Red Fleet

State Park - Utah

Red Fleet State Park features a 750-acre (300 ha) reservoir and a fossil trackway of dinosaur footprints. The park is located 10 miles (16 km) north of Vernal, Utah. It lies at an elevation of 5,500 feet (1,700 m) in northeastern Utah, immediately south of the Uinta Mountains. The climate is arid with hot summers and cold winters. Surrounded by red slick rock formations, the park got its name from three large Navajo sandstone outcrops that look like a fleet of ships as they jut up from the reservoir. Year-round park facilities include a sand beach, boat launching ramp, restrooms, 29 RV campsites, a picnic area, sewage disposal, and fish cleaning stations. Recently a dinosaur trackway dating back 200 million years was discovered in the area.
