DescriptionIn the heart of Dinosaurland, Red Fleet is a destination in itself and great location for discovery of the area.
Dinosaurs inhabited the land in and around present day Vernal. Red Fleet State Park is home of numerous dinosaur tracks. These tracks are believed to be more than 200 million years old. Paleontologists can tell from these tracks preserved in Navajo sandstone that the dinosaurs were three-toed (tridactyl) and walked on two legs (bipedal). The tracks range from three to 17 inches. A second site of about 40 dinosaur tracks of four to five inches, in the more recent Carmel Formation, has been found in the area, however, the species has not yet been identified.
Hike to 200-million-year-old dinosaur tracks, boat and fish on Red Fleet Reservoir, and camp or picnic in a campground overlooking a sandstone and desert landscape.
There are 29 campsites at Red Fleet, all with tables, grills and firepits. Sites 19-21 in the campground have electrical and water hook-ups for your convienience.
This picturesque state park is located 10 miles north of Vernal just off Highway 191. It's a great base for exploring nearby Dinosaur National Monument, Utah Field House of Natural History Museum, and Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area.
