boating: Red Fleet - Vernal Utah - 07/18/08 08:40 AM
 Red fleet Reservoir was named after the Navajo sandstone buttes nearby. The three formations look like a red fleet of ships.
This area has great scenery, dinosaur tracks, fishing, boating, camping, or stop in and have a picnic.
They found more than 200 bipedal tracks on the reservoir shoreline. Check them out by boat or hiking the trail. These tracks are more than 200 million years old. As you travel up to Red Fleet the rock formations are labeled as to which prehistoric period they come from.
The Red Fleet Reservoir area is approximately 10 miles from Vernal, Utah.
