This is an amazing place! Unbelievable to see the formations of goblins, makes you wonder how in the world was this made. My wife and I enjoyed exploring the park. There was a large group of families with many children when we went. They were climbing all over the goblins, as they can't damage them and it is allowed. Great... More

Stopped here and didn't know what to expect from the pictures on the internet. It is a must see if you're traveling in Utah. The kids climbed all over and we explored for hours. It was just an all around cool experience.

This park is spectacular! The goblins were unbelievable! If you have kids who like to climb on rocks then this is the place for you! They filmedthe movie Galaxy Questthere. There are hundreds of goblins to climb on. We spent the night in a yurt. The beds were not the best, but it was a fun experience. Staying in the... More

Come in the evening. It gets really pretty as the sun sets. Don't be afraid to walk way out, rather than just see it from where every other tourist does. And climb on them!

Great sight to see. Just keep in mind it's about 15 miles each way, in and out of the park. Totally worth it though. Plan a minimum of 4-6 hours to see this great site.

The Negative: We spent two days and nights and the campground was riddled with crying/screaming infants/toddlers. Parents: If you choose to let your child "cry it out" at home that is your decision BUT when you do it in a public setting then that should change the rules, but of course not. There were multiple sets of families that were... More

OK. It is not as big and varied as the National Parks. But the Goblin area IS very, very unique, and well worth a few hours to get there and see it. The drive to or from Capital Reef has some great erosion patterns & contrasts of color, as well. Also, drive some roads around Goblin. Great color at the... More

After seeing Grand Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands etc. we've visited this statepark on our way to Torrey. It is a small state park with some nice views. Major point was the Goblin Overlook where you could take a hike down to the Goblins and walk right through it. We took a couple of pictures and had a great Picknick there before... More

We visited having already visiting Capitol Reef National Park, we didn't stay long and only visited as it was on route to Grand Junction, Colorado - I'm not sure you would make a special visit just to go to this park, but if you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit. The rock formations are weird, almost... More

This state park is a little over 2 hrs from Moab. the rock formations resemble goblins from outer space. You can walk among the formations. They are varying heights and shapes and you could spend the whole day exploring the area. This is nothing like Canyonland and Arches National parks. It's a must see if you are in the area.... More
