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.

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!
