Nice campground. Fairly busy. Great for water sport and kids.
It got a little busy and on the holiday weekend but we did some great fishing!
I have been camping here for about 30 years and I'm only 30 years old. My family and our camp friends have been going here, year after year, for the great camp sites, fun hiking and most of all, the sublime waterskiing. To keep it fairly brief, the camp sites are mainly situated around a large, open, slightly uneven grass area which is great for tent camping and day activities (volleyball, frisbee, catch, BBQing.) Not much shade from the smaller trees but there are shaded picnic tables for each site. Around that are the RV sites with full hookups. The surrounding tent sites are in a more desert like, sandy area where I haven't spent much camp time. The bathrooms are usually clean and in good working order with running water, but nothing fancy (no showers.) The lake has a plethora of awesome acitivites including boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, cliff jumping, fishing and does provide some rentals. We usually try to go during the week as it does get quite busy/crowded on weekends.
Red Fleet Holds its annual Paddle Fest every year around this time. Because camping space is very limited our friends and family went and waited in line bright and early to get spots. At Paddle Fest they shut down the lake to all motorized water craft. This allows for kayakers, paddle boards, canoes, and swimmers to be in the water safely. They set up a giant slip n slide on the boat dock and bring in vendors where you'd normally park after launching boats. They also set up a concert stage and have fireworks at night. Red fleet has 2 bathroom facilities. Tent and RV camp sites with no hookups. They have a fish cleaning station for your daily catches. There is a large area with grass, covered picnic tables, fire pits, and bbq's. Each RV site comes with a tent site on that grass. RV sites are very close together so if someones running a generator you will be hearing it. Fishing is off and on as they killed out the lake a couple years ago and replanted smaller fish into it.
Red Fleet is an awesome lake for water sports. The campground is nice. The RV parking and hook ups are actually in the parking lot, but there is a nice green open space with tables that are assigned to each site. The tent camping is a little more primitive along a windy trail in the cedars, also with nice picnic tables. There is a beach area with a floating dock to swim out to. They rent kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. There is a boat launch and dock & fish cleaning station. Numerous trails surround the park for hiking, including the Dinosaur track trail where you can actually see dinosaur tracks in the sandstone rock.
Nice well maintained park. Great for swimming, fishing, boating, water sports, and Kayaking. Sites are located close to each other but isn't to bad as long as its not during a special event. Geocache located near the boat ramp. Ask a ranger for its coordinates.
Red Fleet offers RV sites, tent sites, and even has a couple teepees you can also rent out and stay in. Short walk to the lake. Bathroom facilities with running water. Grassed area with covered picnic tables. Host to the annual DinoTri and also Paddle Fest.
I love camping at Red Fleet State Park for so many reasons. Surrounded by beautiful red rock and pinion pines, the beauty of the desert will take your breath away. There are fossilized dinosaur tracks in the rocks across the lake, and beautiful hiking trails for you to enjoy. One of my favorite things to do every year is to camp there during Paddlefest. They close down the lake to all motorized vehicles, so that people can enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, and all other forms of non motorized floating. Live music, vendors, and so much more! The camp spots are limited during this time, so you must reserve quickly. All camp spots have a fire ring and covered picnic table. Some of the tent camp sites have trails down to the lake. There are also two teepees you can rent!
