- Bring lots of water. There is a drinking water spigot from a tap at the entry of the park but the water is a pinkish/orange color from all the sandstone in it. It is perfectly safe but we did not find it so very tasty.
- There are tables and a covered picnic area by the parking lot with a great overlook of the entire area of the Goblin Valley. There are no places to buy food for hours so pack in a lunch and lots of snacks. Picnic tables go fast on busy days so you might have to wait on a family to finish eating before getting to sit down at your own lunch.
- The park does cost money to get into. You can get more information and check out the fees here.
- Goblin Valley was amazing but you would only spend half a day here at most. I recomend exploring the entire area of Green River over the course of a few days or even a week hitting different points of interest and camping at vaious locations. The drive between destinations estimate between and hour or two, so there is a lot of driving invloved. There are so many points of interest but they are spread out pretty far so plan your trip more like a road trip than one destination.
