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

Amazing place. So unique- nothing like this anywhere else in the world. Plan on going back to hike further into the goblins!

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

This time we planned ahead and stayed in one of the yurts right in the park, and it was a real treat. We were there just after the new moon, and the night sky was ah-mazing! The Milky Way in all its glory. The kids were up at the crack of dawn wanting to go into the valley, so we... More

Wow! Go here if you can possibly manage it. It is in the middle of nowhere, but that just adds to its wonderment. We stopped here on our massive road trip from Philly having never heard of Goblin Valley, needing a place to camp (not many options we found out there in the middle of nowhere) with our three daughters...

This Utah state park is nicely maintained with hundreds of unique natural formations of eroded layers of rocks and mud....aptly named in their goblin-like shaped formations. Trails will take you over, under, around, on top, and through acres of creatively named formations....trails are well packed and established. Children love it here, climbing and running among the "goblins." Lets them work... More

Well worth the 12 mile each way detour on road from hanks vile to moab. Really peculiar features, not seen much elsewhere. Nice to be able to walk freely among them.n

Goblin valley is best visited in the late spring or fall but summer is great too. We stayed in the campground in site 19. Was nice and isolated from the other ones so if you want quiet, go for one on the edge near the end of the park. There are no real trees but the campsites are all paved... More

I loved this place!! Because it was not a national park, I was allowed to bring in my dogs and explore (just please pick up after your pets. I found a few who did not. Ugh.). This park has some of the most unique formations which the kids loved to explore. One could spend hours just in the area close... More
