We love Gooseberry Falls as a stop on our annual camping trip to Grand Marais. This year it was so busy that the parking attendant literally ordered us to pay $7 for parking. She was rude and not helpful and failed to tell us it...More

Beautiful waterfalls of the Gooseberry river north of Two Habors, MN. There are three sets of falls and relatively easy access. Very scenic. One of the must sees for all Minnesotans.

Not terribly impressed. But we have seen a lot of waterfalls. It wasn’t in full mode so maybe that was part of it not seeming so awesome.

This lovely park offers a few beautiful walks, including a very easy paved one to the falls. Other hikes go underneath Hwy 61 and follow the river upstream. The Fifth Falls Loop is a very nice easy walk; note that there are some tree roots...More

These Falls are easy to get to and are beautiful to see!! There is a ramp all the way to the falls where wheelchair visitors can also see the falls. Absolutely beautiful

We started at the park center building where there is a lot of historical information about the wildlife, natural surroundings and park history. Then we took a short walk/hike to the falls which were picturesque. People were friendly and although the park was busy it...More

It's a fully paved pathway & not very far at all from parking. A great visitors center too. There's stairs & a pathway (for those who are unable to do stairs). Pet friendly as well. Absolutely a great place to visit.

We were part of a small tour group. We just walked right in. If there was a fee to pay in the visitor's center, we still just walked right in. But I do believe it was free.

There are seasonal showers in the campground. Water is turned off and the shower building is closed in late October.
