Must see · State Park · Nature / Park
Explore one of the county's most unusual landscapes at Goblin Valley State Park. The 1,479 ha (3,654 acre) area is known for its thousands of hoodoos and hoodoo rocks--mushroom-shaped formations known locally as "goblins." You can explore the Mars-like landscape via one of its three marked hiking trails or admire it from one of the viewpoints. Bear in mind that the park is in a desert with little shade, so dress accordingly. Plan to see Goblin Valley State Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Green River trip site.

  • This is such a unique state park!! I definitely recommend visiting this place. The roads are well maintained and there’s a water station in the parking lot. There’s also a large shaded eating area at the top looking in to the state park. I’ve taken several people here over the years to explore all the canyons and see the Goblins! You’ll create memories here you won’t forget!
  • One of my favorite places in Utah(yes, I know about all of the National Parks.) The campsite are unique and well kept. The Valley is a place you can pack a few sandwiches and spend a whole day getting lost in with your dog and not see a soul. I love the strangeness here. Very unique and fun!
