Goblin Valley State Park
Goblin Valley State Park is located in central Utah and is approximately 215 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. From the Salt Lake area, it’ll take you 3-4 hours to get there by car. The nearest town is Hanksville, which is approximately 32 miles or a 35-minute car ride away from the state park.
The day-use area is incredible with the “goblins,” also known as hoodoos, which have formed over time and given the face of the land a Mars-like surface. Watch the video below to see the park and its campgrounds, yurts, and more.
Day use: $20 and is good for two days
Camping: Sites are $35/night ($20 per extra vehicle), yurts start at $100/night
Goblin Valley State Park boasts one campground with 25 sites, one large group area, and two yurts for rent. Watch our video above to see the individual sites and yurts.
Some sites are tent sites only, while others have back-in or pull-through RV spots + tent pads. There are currently no hookups for RVs, but there is a dump station on site. Every site is within walking distance of the restrooms and showers.
