Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Canyonlands, Goblin Valley State Park is a must-see if you are doing the classic Southern Utah Grand Circle loop. Located in Utah's Castle country, wind, water and time have carved thousands of sandstone spires into spooky and impressive shapes; hence the park's name "Goblin Valley." Photographers, families with children and hikers will all appreciate the unique natural beauty of this state park. This is a great day trip for visitors to Arches or Capitol Reef National Parks as well as Canyonlands. There are 25 campsites within the park for guests who want to spend the night. 36 miles southwest of I-70.
