This dinosaur track (likely a dilophosaurus) is located on the shores of the Red Fleet reservoir within Red Fleet State Park across from the marina and main camping area.  There are over 200 tracks along the shoreline, though many are difficult to find and are not as well preserved as this single large track.  The tracks include two trackways - multiple prints by the same dinosaur as it walked along.  There are abundant outcrops of Navajo sandstone here, three of which look like large ships at sea and are the origin of the park's name.
