Description. Goblin Valley State Park is like no other area on earth. The park is a valley of orange, weathered gnomes. Thousands of intricately eroded goblin-like landforms create a strange and wonderful landscape. Visitors to Goblin Valley may hike among intricately eroded rock formations in haunting coves in this photographers’ paradise. Adjacent to the park, off-highway vehicle enthusiasts will find hundreds of miles of dirt roads to explore.
Goblin Valley State Park is in Emery County between Green River and Hanksville off State Route 24. Facilities include a 21-unit campground, modern rest rooms, hot showers for campers, sanitary disposal station and visitor observation shelter.
