Welcome to Goblin Valley State Park

Due to limited parking and extremely high levels of visitation, please note that there may be delays of several hours to enter the park on weekends from March through June. The visitor center and gift shop will also be closed most weekends. We recommend visiting mid-week.

Drone use is by permit only. Permits may be obtained at the visitor center for a fee of $5.00. Permit blackouts may occur during special events, emergencies, and periods of especially high visitation. You may also print the form here and bring it with you for faster service.

Journey to this strange and colorful valley, which is unlike any other in Utah. The landscape, covered with sandstone goblins and formations, is often compared to Mars. Explore the geology, and camp among the nooks and gnomes.
