Similar to Powell, but clearly on a smaller scale. Plenty of shore line and parking. Even on the weekend, appeared there was plenty of space and flat water to enjoy the water and views.

We had a great time paddle boarding and kayaking. It was crowded but it was a Saturday. We still had room on the beach and found parking.

We did the hike to the dinosaur foot prints. The hike is 3.5 miles each way which is a bit of a hike for small children but we made it. With her walking it took us about an hour to get there and we did...More

We really enjoyed our day at Red Fleet. It is a very pretty park and the trail to see the Dino prints is well marked and a fun trail. The lake is beautiful and the campground and bathrooms are spotless.

I love seeing dinosaur tracks and bones, however, I have to admit I was a little disappointed after hiking to see them. It appears that many are no longer there based on the 'map' that they had. We did the hike which was really nice;...More

Basically the park is a large reservoir surrounded by red rock formations and desert scrub. The scenery is beautiful with the added bonus of a treasure of fossils from a long dry shallow sea with hundreds of dinosaur tracks along the reservoir shoreline. There are...More

The surrounding park is beautiful. Of course we went in the early Spring so there was no water sports, but it was pretty just to stop. I cn imagine it is great in the summer.

The hike was only about 2 miles, maybe a little less, but it was not super easy with my toddler. Still, the tracks at the reservoir were ABSOLUTELY worth it!
