If you are passing through Hanksville, Utah, then you should stop at Goblin Valley State Park and do the Little Wild Horse Canyon hike in Goblin Valley State Park. When I first visited the park, back in the early 80s, looking for the spacey narrows hike I had read about, there were no signs and even the park ranger didn't... More

This has got to be one of the most unique state parks that we've been to! The RV park which was a dry camp had large cement pads, easy to park motor homes and tow vehicles. Gazebo and area for small fire pit. Absolutely amazing scenery all around us. We wish more state parks were like this one, we plan... More

Goblin Valley is one of those surprise places. My kids begged not to get out of the car when we first pulled in to the parking lot. We told them they had to spend at least five minutes just looking at the hoodoos then they could get in the car. Two hours later they begged us to stay longer. Hide... More

We spend most of our time over in the temple mountain area looking at the old mining stuff. We went in early December a few years ago, it was a bit cold but no snow in sight. The main park of goblin Valley is a bit pricey to see so make sure you spend some time exploring as much as... More

The scene was spectacular, it was great and the best part is that you don't have to drive and hike for a long time if you don't want to. You could though hike for some time and see the whole park for a while but it's not required. The formations are right there next to the road which is nice... More

You can walk right through the valley and get up close with the rock goblins. A great stop. We were there on a cool day, which was so nice. I can't imagine the sun and heat in the summer. November was a perfect time.

This place is as pretty as the photos suggest. It's easily accessed, has fantastic camping and rentable yurts, and is a great photography destination. Take a right on the road to little wild horse canyon just before the park, you will find free camping just a 1/3 mile down this road on the right. Save $12 per day this way,... More

We found this park to be one of the most interesting in Utah. You almost felt like you were on another planet. This was well worth the side trip!
