Fantastic Location

Been here on three different trips; one in each of the past three years. First time we drove down, played in the Valley of the Goblins, camped, then got up, checked out some petroglyphs, hiked Crack Canyon, hiked Little Wild Horse Canyon, then went home, great first trip here. Second time drove down, played in the Goblins, camped, then got up, hiked Little Wild Horse Canyon, hiked Ding Canyon, then went home, another excellent trip. Third time, drove down, played in the Goblins, camped at one of the Park's campsites, then got up, hiked Ding and Dang Canyons, took a break, played in the Goblins for quite a while, hiked Little Wild Horse Canyon at night, camped near its TH, then got up, hiked Crack Canyon, and went home at last, this last trip was the most spectacular by far. Amazing location, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in unparalleled scenery!

Re: Fantastic Location

Visited again this year, hiked in Goblin Valley and hiked Ding and Dang Canyons the next day, didn't run out of water this time.

several visits over the years

nice solitude, great camping, several canyons - lovely place to explore (there is so much to do) and to return.
Climbing - B crags.

Multiple trips...  Sucess!

Multiple trips to the Swell over 6-8 years or so. Some extremely cold camping trips in winter and likewise, some delightful swimming holes while canyoneering in summer.
Have even done some 4x4-ing.
Solitude is guaranteed here. One of my favourite places in Utah.
