Great stop on the Lake Superior Circle Tour. Pretty park & waterfalls with short hikes. Little bit of history as well.

We spent the morning hiking and climbing on the rocks by the falls. It was hot but not crowded yet at 9am on a Sunday morning.

Nice hike to falls, stretch your legs from riding up the North Shore. Gift shop is excellent; always can find something I like. Very clean bathrooms.

Gooseberry Falls is a perennial favorite. My wife and I and family have visited there nearly a dozen times over the years. It's well-maintained, with decent parking (very busy in the summer) and short hikes to see beautiful waterfalls.

You can walk to the Upper and Lower falls. The visitor's center is nice and it's fun to wade in the water.
