In any other state, this would be a major attraction. However with all the National Park competition its realitivly quiet. Really unique rock formations with miles of area to roam. There are tons of hidden side canyons. I've visited here at least 5 times. Nearby is the equally fantastic Little Wild Horse Canyon.

We stayed here for two nights. The park is great fun to walk around and take pictures. The campground is very small so probably best to make advance reservations. We gto there and the weather was bad so they had some cancellations. Nice to camp close to the Goblins. You can also camp on BLM land nearby.

We were heading down hwy 24 & saw sign. Turned in & paid $10 to enter park. What a surprise with all the rock statues. Reminded me of the rock people in Frozen. What a great surprise so much better than the national park by Torrey! See I even forgot it's name....

We camped here 3 nights, and spent 2 days hiking. The hike through the "goblin" valleys was amazing, and our day hiking the slot canyons of Little Wild Horse Canyon was also incredible. 5 Star scenery, to be sure! The campsites were nicely laid out & separated from each other enough to feel somewhat private despite the lack of foliage.... More

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
