Red Fleet is almost 2,000 acres with a reservoir of 750 water acres, and sits in what is known as ‘the heart of Dinosaurland’ at an elevation of 5,500 feet. Tracks believed to be more than 200 million years old can be reached by hiking a rather strenuous 1.25 mile trail of several up and down sections. There is a variety of land and water recreation, hiking trails, wildlife viewing, and camping and/or picnicking. Day use permits cover personal watercraft launches, and annual passes are available at the visitor’s center. Park hours are shortened for the winter. Dogs are allowed throughout the park, on the trails, and on the beach. Dogs must be on a maximum 6 foot leash, and they are not allowed in park buildings. Dogs must be well behaved, and cleaned up after at all times.
NOTE: Red Fleet State Park is closed for the 2022 season due to extensive construction.
