Description - Red Fleet State Park consists of developed sites on the shores of Red Fleet Reservoir. The lake is surrounded by red Slickrock formations which form a dramatic background for excellent boating and year-round fishing endeavors. Recently a dinosaur trackway dating back 200 million years was discovered in the area, making the state park lands attractive to paleontologists of all ages.
