Goblin Valley State Park is located near Green River, Utah. Its lures people to visit with its thousands of hoodoos and hoodoo rocks, referred to locally as “goblins”, which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles, some as high as several meters. The park also offers mountain biking, disc golf, hiking, and camping. There is a $10 park entry fee.
The disc golf is a rough, but scenic 9-hole disc golf course. The course is free with admittance to the park. The visitor center will provide course maps and rent disc for $1 each. The course is located by the campground and has long hole distances. It was fun, but challenging.
To allow visitors to explore the park and meander through the goblins, it offers 6 miles of hiking trails. In addition, there is The Valley of Goblins, which is composed of 3 valleys spanning nearly three square miles and is a free-roaming area that can be explored too.
To fully enjoy your visit the park offers camping too. The campground at Goblin Valley State Park consists of 25 sites and two yurts. There are ten walk-in tent pads, fourteen RV spaces, and one group site able to accommodate up to 35 people. Showers and flush toilets, as well as a communal water and dump station are all available free of charge. All sites contain a picnic table, metal fire ring, and shade shelter. The cost is $23.00 per night, which includes your $10 park entry fee.
I would recommend a reservation as it sells out quickly. To make a reservation camping reservation, go to the website www.reserveamerica.com, or call the reservation hotline at 1-800-322-3770.
This a very unique park that offer a lot of fun and adventure for everyone.
