I've gone to Gooseberry numerous times and it's always beautiful, no matter the time of year. The main attractions are easy for almost anyone to get to, from maybe three to eighty, depending on your mobility. The views are fantastic from the side as well as above and from the lower levels. If you're super observant, there are trees you... More

Gooseberry falls is a must for anyone staying or driving through the north shore. It's a very well kept state park and has beautiful trails. I love coming here every year.

Gooseberry is a really nice park. The campsites are a nice size, semi private. The bathrooms were clean, the pavilions and picnic areas are very nice and the Falls are great. There are beautiful buildings and landmarks from the CCC, a very nice Visitor Center and good hiking trails.

Having lived on the shore for 20 + years and actually worked at Gooseberry after retirement, this Park is just wonderful. Take the time to hike! Trails are not difficult and will add value to your trip. The river trails and lake views will calm your spirit and put a smile on your heart.

Nicely set up trail to see from the top to the lake. Is some walking and vertical efforts but well worth it. Is virtually on the highway and parking a little congested.

You can hike, snowshoe, ski, through the park or climb the waterfall if it's not rushing too swiftly! Beautiful to see the frozen falls too! Love this place! Enjoy!

Never been to the falls in the winter, definitely even better with the snow and ice than in the other months! We went earlier in the morning and enjoyed the trails all to ourselves. Towards the noon hour when we returned the "hot spots" were busy but we had already enjoyed these spots. Don't forget to go down to the... More

We have been here many times. We have hiked many of the trails and have enjoyed the breathtaking views! We have also been here with small children age 4 and older family as well! The nice paved trails are great for them and still allows you to see the beauty! They have a great interpretive center and store to keep... More
