We always stop at Gooseberry to check out the falls and hike down to the lake. Great place to stop and stretch your legs.

We did the quick little loop right off of the visitors center to see the upper & lower falls. We were in a hurry so we didn't have time to explore anything else. Gooseberry Falls SP is just down the road from Split Rock Lighthouse SP and once you pay to get into one park the rest of the parks... More

We always stop by the Falls when we are in the area. While the hike scenery stays the same, the kids love walking in the after and on the rocks. Take water shoes if you want to do this though or your feet will get bruised.

The trails at this state park are endless and so diverse. We hiked along the river, through marshland, over rocks, and up hills to get a spectacular view of Lake Superior!!

The falls, the beach, and the park are all beautiful and well maintained. Gift shop has many, many lovely and practical items for sale. Gooseberry is a must for anyone visiting Minnesota's North Shore.

In warm weather, wear your swimsuit to the waterfall. Lots of opportunity for fun in the water. Great hiking trails. Beautiful riverside trail down to the lake with beautiful shoreline. For a stretch day, you can make a day trip from the Twin Cities and be home by 9pm. I've done it many times.

This had to be the highlight of the trip! We drove along the scenic drive from Duluth to get there and once we were there, we were not disappointed. It was breathtaking and beautiful. We had a great picnic at the base of the waterfall and walked up to the top. Kid friendly, a beautiful day and gorgeous falls. Must... More

There are at least five waterfalls on the trail at this park, which makes for a lovely hike. The trail is not too strenuous, though there are stairs and it is rough in parts. We were here in early June and the water was powerful and plentiful. Lake Superior is nearby and SplitRock Lighthouse is not far up the highway.... More
