Ice is Never 100% Safe! — Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out.

Red Fleet Reservoir sits in a rugged red rock setting, with sandstone cliffs and the Uinta Mountains as a backdrop. Red Fleet is known for the petroglyphs that adorn the surrounding area and for dinosaur footprints set in the sandstone. Red Fleet Reservoir has tested positive for quagga mussels. It was treated with rotenone in 2015 to remove invasive fish, and restocking began in November 2015. See the article: Life Returns to Red Fleet Reservoir.
