plenty of parking, plenty to view...gift shop has lots of nice items..wear comfortable shoes..you can even bring your swimsuit. Park has lots of trails to wonder through and lots of different views of waterfalls...keep little ones close because of rough terrain and cliffs. A must see for anyone..may be difficult for elderly

We almost didn't go to Gooseberry Falls, as rain was in the forecast for most of the day, but we decided that the falls would be in full... More

Lovely park, well maintained. Nice gift shop. The falls are beautiful. The upper falls are so neat to look at. There are areas where you can get in the water! They have overlooks and trails for walking and biking. It is worth the visit!

A beautiful area to explore the North Shore of Lake Superior. We are avid rock hounds and were exploring the rocks along the shore.

I grew up going to Gooseberry Falls and it never disappoints. One thing to note is that it does get busy midday in the summertime but even with that we didn 't have a hard time finding parking. We went pretty quickly just looking at the middle and lower falls but you could easily spend 2-4 hours here, especially if... More

The waterfalls were well worth the short walk. If you're near Duluth, make sure you take a few hours and check out gooseberry!

Even though it was somewhat rainy, we were able to talk the easy walk to the falls. Very nice gift store and learning opportunity at this rest area. Beautiful and enjoyable!

Take your time and soak in the north shore. You not only get see a pair of spectacular waterfalls but their is access to Lake Superior. If you have a family that likes camping this is one of the best places on the North Shore to do so.
