Very interesting park, half way between Capitol Reef and the highway. Not the kind of park you can see from your car: this is a very hands-on experience. The funny shaped hoodoos are small enough to crawl around and over, and when we went there, the park was literally filled with kids. If you bring your children along to discover... More

Goblin valley is fantastic. Apart from being 100 degrees heat, when you see the valley it is weird, awesome and fantastic all at the same time. The goblins are great and if you walk down to them they are bigger than you think. You are left wondering how on earth they were made - defy a camera moment

This place is pretty much out of the way. You have to want to see this, but you will not be disappointed. It is a 4 and a half hour drive from Bryce Canyon, and most of the way you are on the historic Highway 12 scenic byway. The views along the way are amazing! Once you turn off to... More

Have to say, it's quite far from every other interesting thing around. You have to drive for 25 km to reach the place but it's so worth it! The landscape is wonderfull and it's a big mystery why movies like Star Wars never are recorded here ... a must visit and stop on your trip from Bryce Canyon to Arches... More

We have been to Goblin Valley lots of times and it just never gets old. Grab your camera and get ready to climb and pose on some really interesting formations. Our kids (who are now in their older teens) love to run amuk and explore. What is really fun is exploring the valley on a full moon. A nice new... More

If you are in the area you need to check out the beautiful scenery & cool rock formations throughout this park. This is a little out of the way but definitely worth the visit to see the unique rock goblins. We had a nice picnic lunch at the campground... the are cooking pits, tent pads and a frisbee golf course.... More

First we played in the valley of goblins. Parents and children equally enjoyed this attraction. We spent over an hour exploring. We also checked out the campground for a future stay. We have a 29' class c rv and this campground would be just fine. Has hot showers, water and a dump site. No eclectic on the sites though. We... More

This is a must see if you are ever in the Capitol Reef National Park area! The landscape is just surreal! The park lets you explore this huge bizzard rock formation area freely! My family totally loved this park!

Amazing natural formations, can walk right next to them. Found some that looked like things as a rabbit, bird, skulls. Beautiful.

We 1st went camping @ Goblin Valley in March. It was magical. My 5 yr old enjoyed running around the campground with all the other children. The scenery/landscape lends itself to discovery especially for the younger campers.12 is the best spot for a tent. It is tucked into a small canyon. It's private and quiet. The showers were pretty clean... More
