Goblin Valley State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide

"Imagine a place where little stone creatures dot the landscape like an eclectic mix of squatty snowmen, magical mushrooms, and tiny huts. Sounds pretty bizarre, right? I don’t think they’ll be putting “bizarre” in their brochure anytime soon, but that’s definitely one way to describe Goblin Valley State Park. These strange stone formations, commonly referred to as hoodoos, are actually made of eroded Entrada sandstone, worn from former highlands and deposited on the flat valley floor.

The alternating layers of sandstone, siltstone, and shale now remain in the form of fantastic rock formations that seem to bubble up from the earth, like warts on the desert landscape. The campground here in the valley of hoodoos is a top-notch facility, with a small visitor center, modern flush toilets and shower facilities, and a shade pavilion in each campsite. But while Goblin Valley is undoubtedly a comfortable place to camp, the downside is that heavy crowds makes camping cramped."
