Hanksville: Goblin Valley State Park Next » 1 of 31 « Prev
Around 35 miles north of Hanksville lies family-famous Goblin Valley. For kids it is an exploring paradise. The only regrets for most adults is that we didn't get taken here years ago when we had all that energy. It is most enjoyable during the Spring or Fall.

Most people play around in the area closest to the parking lot, and there's plenty of fun to be had there. But you might consider venturing back into the 2nd "valley" and maybe even the 3rd. They are less crowded and the hoodoos become a little larger and the mini-canyons a little deeper.

Entrance fee: $7/vehicle. The campsite is excellent but book well in advance.
