“An interesting State Park, worth the visit”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2017

Overall Rating

Goblin Valley State Park offers a small, very popular campground. If you want to stay here you will want to book early. There is extremely limited cell service in this entire area. We did find Verizon cell service while mountain biking in the park when we were on the highest points. But, that was even spotty and I only knew we had... more

“ Stunning beauty, but no Verizon cell or WiFi and really far away from everything”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2017

I am a full-time traveling solo rv-er. I was desperate for a place to stay at this point, and I couldn't find any good boondocking locations nearby. This is a place to come if you want to get away from it all, a vacation. This is way out in the middle of nowhere, not so good for an overnight LOL. Stunningly beautiful, quiet, lovely cam... more

“Valley of the Goblins is worth a visit!”

Reviewed Jun 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Upon driving into the park, it doesn’t look super exciting. Pretty views, and a few “goblins,” and a lot of desert area. There real fun lies at the “Valley of the Goblins,” which is a short drive up the road from the campground! Some facts about the campground: --It is a dry campground, meaning there is no electricity or water at ... more

“Must Visit Location. ”

Reviewed Dec 26, 2016

Overall Rating

There's no cell service here, but it's a must visit location. Occasionally a text would get through on the Verizon phone when boosted. We stayed in the middle of November 2016. Set aside time to visit this amazing location. The rock formations are amazing and a photographers dream. There is geocaching and disc golf. We eve... more

“Extraordinary location with challenging acoustics”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2016

Overall Rating

We reserved two nights here, about a month ahead of time. We'd driven by a year ago, through pure coincidence on Halloween, to find the park completely out of control and overrun with families. We turned around and got our $13 refunded because there was no place to park. At all. However, we were intrigued by the setting and thought... more

“Not for the faint of heart”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2016

Overall Rating

Goblin Valley is a hard campground to reserve despite it's remote location and high price. If you forget to make reservations 4 months in advance you will find all your dates fully booked. We got a lucky break when another camper canceled. The Reserve America website has a cancelation notification function as long as you pick specifi... more

“Too pricy but good for families. Park is fantastic.”

Reviewed Jun 24, 2015

Overall Rating

I'm a huge fan of Utah State Parks. And a tent camper. This is my favorite because you can walk around the goblin formations and since it's down in a fenced valley from the viewing area it looks like something you shouldn't be able to do. 2 summers ago a Boy's Scout Troop Leader got in a ton of trouble for pushing one of the format... more

My wife and I stopped here on our way to Moab from some of the National Parks. We came across it on the map by shear chance when we needed a place to stay for the night. My co-pilot/wife looked around on the map and saw this tiny green area, googled it and there we went. Lucky for us and not so lucky for the tent-campers around, we d... more

Reviewed Oct 17, 2014

We LOVE Goblin Valley. Among Utah's National Parks, this little state park often gets overlooked, but it is fantastic. The hoodoo valley is so much fun for both kids and adults. The campground itself is nestled up against some hills. They have shade covers for the picnic tables (which is great because it gets really hot). We tent ca... more
