My husband and I were here for three days and really enjoyed our experience. It's gorgeous and otherworldly and just really a unique place to visit. We stayed at the state park campground and while pricey, what they give you, we felt, made it worth it. To have a sun shade on every site is a TREAT! Free showers and running water is also a huge treat and we definitely took advantage. The one thing that was super annoying was the fact that every child (and some adults) felt that climbing on all the hoodoos and goblins that surround the campground, gave them free reign to just run or walk into any campsite they wanted. I can't tell you how many times some rando kid would come running out, behind us and into our campsite, because our site had an easy place to down climb off the rock features. I doubt there's anything the campground/state park can do about it but attention all parents...just because you don't want to watch your children when you take them to new places doesn't mean that we should be subjected to your rugrats running into our campsite. We paid just as much as you did and this is our HOME for the time we reserved. You wouldn't let your kid run into someone's house...how about controlling them enough to not let them disturb others' privacy?

Hubby really wanted to do this. I am so glad we did. It's a whole lot of things. Cute. Different. Up close and personal. Self planning. You can spend as little time or as much time as you want. There was an admission charge but it was minimal and worth it. The road to get there was paved. There was a covered picnic area which overlooked the goblins. Certain days of the week there is a food truck there. Not opened on the day we visited which was disappointing. Menu looked good and prices were reasonable. Bathroom facilities also. I am very glad we went. Definitely worth the time. We would visit on our next trip.

It's kind of in the middle of nowhere but worth the trip. At first I was shocked when I saw the main parking lot full of cars, but understood why this park is so popular when i saw the hoodoos. They're amazing

Pictures cannot do this place justice. Fortunately I had no expectations and I was blown away by this state park in the middle of nowhere Utah. Do not miss the opportunity to see these formations.

This is a great spot if you want to run around and explore a bit without going too far! We spent our time hanging out and walking around the hoodoos, not actually following any specific hiking trail. We didn't go far from the parking lot but still had great views!
