Travel: Goblin Valley State Park, Utah

By Robert Ellis

Goblin Valley State Park lies between Green River, Utah and Capital Reef National Park. It's a fun state park to visit and explore, and only a short 12 miles off the beaten path between the two areas.

Park size was over 3600 acres...however as of June 2022, the Bureau of Land Management signed over 6,300 acres increasing the park significantly. One wonders will it ultimately become a National Park?

Here's an excerpt from the Utah State Parks Blog regarding the land transfer:
"Goblin Valley State Park - It's been described as mysterious, majestic, weird, wonderful, and downright "Martian." Goblin Valley State Park is a Utah favorite for a reason - and now, it's growing."
