I wanted to go to Goblin Valley for the simple reason that it's where my favorite band recorded a music video, but the idea of photographing it had me put it on my bucket list. I told myself, "if I get up toward that area of Utah". Last fall, I made it part of my trip to Arches. First off,... More

Worth a stop if you're in the area. You have to pay the state park fee to enter this area (about $10 a car). The main "goblin" view point is in a higher area and the winds were whipping while we were there so a windbreaker and/or scarf to block the potential dust is advised. We wanted to eat lunch... More

We enjoyed watching the Goblins change was the sun set. This is a super fun place to come and just play. Super place for photo for both young and old. Be sure and stay after dark. The stars are amazing.

If you like to see the wonders of nature in rock form this place is a must see. You can walk among the formations and imagine what they look similar too in the real world. Grea place for kids to run and hide and climb. Fees are too high in the campground for no water or electric - we stayed... More

If you happened to be in the area, try to stop here because the hoodoos are amazing. Unlike their counterparts in the nearby areas such as the Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks, these hoodoos have very short support “structures” making them easy, and quite tempting, to climb onto. For respect’s sake, not to mention safety, please try your best to... More

This is a great state park. it is amazing to walk thru, and climb if you want to or are so inclined. Beautiful area and a really fun place to visit. There were many people there and families having picnic and enjoying the park. We walked amongst the hoo-doos for several hours. well worth the time to stop and visit.

If you are a cotton headed ninny muggins, skip it. If you like to play and have any sense of fun, include this in your itinerary. The 30 miles from the hwy are worth it. We did a spontaneous stop, and 12 yr old daughter and husband's favorite part of trip. They both whined when I said we had to... More
