For years my parents have told me of this place. WOW It was an explorers dream. You can walk around, touch, take pictures Use your imagination. Not recommended when it is hot. Winter time is also enjoyable to see the figures as they now have some snow and look so different. We stayed at the campground. There is a shaded... More

This amazing natural attraction is worth the side trip off of highway 70. The first time I was here there was no entrance fee, campground, or even a ranger for that matter! Still, the natural enviroment has been preserved for a lot of fun wandering around to see the unusual shapes and colors. There are lots of trails and a... More

I used to go hear in college 20 years ago. It is better with kids. We spent 2 whole days literally climbing around. Our kids are 4 & 9. The nine year old was able to feel accomplished in climbing larger stuff while the younger one was enthralled with all the small places she could fit into. The camp ground... More

A great recommendation from some people we met online while researching our road trip. This is a not to miss, its only a small place but the formations are as unusual as you will find in Arches or Bryce (not quite as large). If you stay in the campground (recommended) there is a great hike that takes you to the... More

This is very definitely worth the stop! There is a look out at the top of Valley #1, but it is so much more fun to go down among the 'goblins'! You can spend hours wandering around and looking at all the different formations! Don't miss this!!

This park offers something unique and shouldn't be overlooked if you're in the area. Plan on spending at least 2 hours wandering around. They seem to be pretty lax about letting you plant your feet wherever you please. Not sure about the wisdom of this. But even though we had a packed, hectic schedule, I was glad we took the... More

Great camping trip to Goblin Valley early this week. High of 59 degrees and a low of 30 at night. Great camping area with water near each camp site and a covered picnic table and a fire pit for each space. $20 a night camp fees for motor homes and RV's and less for the tent sites. We stayed Sunday... More

We had a super family adventure here among the goblinesque rock formations.After taking in the spectacular vista our kids immediately started Hide - n - go seek. You can walk a trail that goes around and through the formations. Admission is a bargain at $8. Bathroom is limited to an outhouse. There is a pavilion with picnic tables. No food... More

Goblin Valley is a nice state Park in Central Utah. There are many fascinating carved rock formations called goblins with in the park. Nice trail allows you explore as you wish. Visitor Center lacks in size and depth of teaching people about location. Gift shop small and expensive for products offered.

I was torn between this place and another. It appears out of nowhere and is great for kids. It's not huge but you can explore the place and have load of fun. It's not an all day place but worth a visit! Highly recommended!
