We didn't know what to expect, but WOW! This park with all its Goblins was unique! This was our 3rd trip to Southern Utah, and we wanted to include a few new things while we were there is time. Goblin Valley is not like any other State or National park in Utah. I would describe it as "nature's play ground".... More

It's a beautiful park and from the observation overlook, it is quite easy to walk in amongst the goblins. From all the write ups about them, I was perhaps expecting too much. They are good and you can take some neat pictures, but there are a number of sights that I think are better. If you are short on time... More

You know the feeling as your walk begins and the synthesizer sounds fill the air, while the clouds in the blue sky begin to brighten, a few raindrops making patterns in the sand, and the dancing Goblins are moving to The Dark Side of the Moon! Me toooo! As the 🌞 beamed down its rays (we saw 🌈 in the... More

Unexpected wonder! State Park with really unusual rock formations, some of which look like goblins - hence the name! Various trails great to wander round and easily accessible - my teens loved it! There is also a camp site there but didnt stay so not sure what its like

If rock formations float your boat, then this area will be a delight to see and walk amongst the rock goblins. Fun for families. Bring water with you.

The scenery in the Goblin Valley is incredible. The camping would be better in the spring and fall as the temperatures in the summer are always at or above 90F

Our family of 4 stayed here in early August. The park is just incredible with huge and unique rock formations that look other wordly. It really is quite remote so you need to make sure you have all the supplies you need. We stayed in one of the two yurts which was just fine. Yurts were comfortable enough with a... More

Just visited Goblin Valley with our almost 4 and 6 year old daughters. The whole state park is like one giant outdoor playground with easily climb-able rock formations for any kiddos older than 3 with good climbing shoes. The girls could have explored the hoodoos all day. The State Campgrounds are also kid friendly with showers and toilets with running... More
