Here’s some information you may find useful before your trip (sourced from Wikipedia and other research):
Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation (formerly Starvation State Park) is a state park in northeastern Utah, United States, featuring the 3,495-acre Starvation Reservoir. The park is 4 miles northwest of the town of Duchesne, Utah.
There are various narratives explaining the name "Starvation". The most credible story was recounted by Orson Mott. In 1900 A.M. Murdock of Heber city, approached Major Myton of the Uintah Indian reservation to purchase grazing permits for his cattle. He was given grazing permits in the upper Strawberry river area. Dave Murdock, brother of Al Murdock had secured a contract to provide beef to the Ute tribe at Fort Duchesne. In the fall of 1904 they brought the herd out of the high grazing areas and made it to the river bottoms which is now covered by Starvation reservoir. Very heavy snows stranded the herd. With no feed the entire herd died. Dave Murdock named the area "Starvation Flats" from this experience.
