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. Anglers fish for large-mouth bass, bluegill, rainbow trout, and brown trout. In the heart of Dinosaurland, Red Fleet is a destination in itself and great location for discovery of the area.
The park name was inspired by three large Navajo sandstone outcrops jutting up from the landscape as if a fleet of ships. Red Fleet State Park is also known for the Dinosaur Trackway Trail. Two hundred million years ago, this area looked like the Sahara Desert. And like the Sahara, the area had oases of shallow desert lakes called playas. Dinosaurs journeyed to the small playas among the dunes. We know this from the tracks left behind in the wet sand. Hundreds of dinosaur tracks now lay exposed for you to see in the Navajo sandstone.
