Camping:  Red Fleet State Park

On-Line Reservations Now Available!

Red Fleet State ParkRed Fleet is located about 11 miles North of Vernal, UT. To get to Red Fleet, drive North on Highway 44 out of Vernal until you see the sign for the state park. This reservoir is one of the most scenic in the state. Although small, it has an almost Lake Powell feel to it. The surrounding The Surrounding Area Is All Redrockarea is all redrock, reminiscent of Southern Utah. The reservoir is situated at 5600 feet and covers 520 acres.

Red Fleet is stocked with Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, and Bluegill. The fishing isn’t bad and the scenery is even better. The water levels are high this year, but in most years Beautiful Scenerythe water level can get a bit low in the summertime.

There is a trail leading to a series of petrified dinosaur footprints, be sure and ask the ranger about the trail. There are quite a few cottontail rabbits that hang out near the gate of the park, look for them in the grass.

The campground of the park is a bit disappointing, it closely resembles a parking lot. Luckily the scenery almost makes up for the closeness of the sites and the general lack of “campground” feel. There are 39 sites, they all feature picnic tables, fire Red Fleet Campgroundgrates and shaded mini-pavilions.

There is a $5.00 day use fee, campsites are $11.00 per site with a $7.00 reservation fee. Campsites include one vehicle, an additional vehicle is $6.00. There is a boat ramp and fish cleaning station in the park as well.
