This park is a hidden jewel recently exposed by the media coverage of destruction by boy scout leaders last year. The formations are excellent, unique, totally different form any other formations in our park systems in the US. Don't miss this jewel amongst the more famous National Parks in the area. A Must SEE.

We had seen quite a bit of Utah Awesomeness before getting to Goblin so we found it a bit anticlimatic. We didn't mind paying the $10 entry fee as it's obviously a small price to pay to preserve natural wonders, but we felt like we must have missed something because it seemed really really small. And much of what we... More

Well kept Utah State Park. Get to go down with the goblins which look like mushrooms (?) and play. Lots and lots of pictures - Really looked like a fun place for kids.

This is a great place to spend some time. Everywhere you can use your imagination and you see creatures that look like the cartoon version of the real thing: penguins, whales, trees, lions, monkeys ... Very fun to go with kids but can be incredibly hot in the Summer so take a lot of water with you. There are not... More

This is a must stop on your way to Bryce. Our innkeeper gave us the heads up about this park. Go out of your way and find this hidden gem. The formations look like huge mushrooms and they're in this valley. You get to walk all around them. It's a great place for kids to play hide and seek. Check... More

A strange and colorful valley unlike any other. The landscape is covered with Entrada sandstone goblins and formations. It's like you walked into an animated Disney movie. Adults, have your camera ready. Children, imagination will be in high gear. Allow at least 1:30 hours to wander. There is an entrance fee. There are some hiking trails, campground, covered picnic area,... More

Hiked thru 2 slot canyons in an out and back loop. Love this place. Was there about 2001. Sandstone photographers paradise.

This place is amazing. I had driven past the entrance many times in my life but had never stopped. Big mistake! We went as a family and my 3 boys absolutely loved it. So did the wife and I. I even managed to get our son's wheelchair down into the valley and push him around. The boys played hide and... More

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.
