Roam the desert sands of Utah among the goblins.

Goblin Valley is a Utah State Park near Hanksville and the Henry Mountains. The park features miles of hoodoos or goblins which are formations of tall, mushroom shaped pinnacles of sandstone formed over millions of years of erosion. There are also several Native American rock art panels in the area. 

Goblin Valley was discovered in the 1920’s and though remote, it attracted many visitors to the area. It was officially designated a state park on August 24, 1964 to help preserve and protect the hoodoos from vandalism. In 2019 the state park was expanded by adding 6,261 acres of federal land. The area is featured in the 1999 film Galaxy Quest as a far away alien planet and it certainly fits the bill as such! Admission is $20 per vehicle.

Come prepared for the weather as temperatures can reach 105 degrees in the summer and 10 degrees in the winter months with some snow. The summer monsoon season can bring dangerous flash floods so be sure to check the forecast before your visit.
