Goblin Valley Camping offers the opportunity to camp near unique rock formations and gorgeous scenery.
Goblin Valley Camping
One of the cool features in the Goblin Valley State Park Campground is a disc golf course. The disc golf course takes you all over the campground and up into the red rock around the campground.
There is also an easy path to mountain bike trails and hiking trails directly from the campground.
Goblin Valley Campground was the first Utah State Park to have Yurts. The yurts are located just down from the campground and look amazing.
This would be an epic place to check out the southern Utah night sky! We are already talking about booking a return trip to stay in a yurt so we can get up before sunrise and watch the sunrise over the nooks and gnomes and goblins that are all over the park.
The landscape covered with sandstone features, unlike anything we have seen at any other park. Goblin Valley is a little over 3 and a half hours from Salt Lake City on Highway 24 and so worth a visit!
Number of Sites: 25 campsites and 2 yurts
The 25 campsites are broken into ten walk-in tent pads, fourteen RV spaces, and one group site able to accommodate up to 35 people.
Location in the park: Off of the main road. The campground is super easy to find and well signed.
Campsite Cost: $35.00, which includes the park’s entry fee for 2 days.

Campground Address: Located 48 miles southwest of Green River, Utah, via State Road 24.
Accessible Sites: Yes Site #22. I would say that this site looks like it would be best for RV camping. There is a tent pad but it is elevated and sand-filled. The sand is lower than the elevated concrete so it could be interesting to get in and out of.
