“Pristine Minnesota Scenery in Two Harbors!”

Gooseberry Falls State Park is a state park of Minnesota, USA, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. The park is located in Silver Creek Township, about 13 miles (21 km) northeast of Two Harbors, Minnesota in Lake County on scenic Minnesota Highway 61. The Joseph N. Alexander visitor center, built in 1996, provides space for interpretive displays, a cinema screening room, and a gift shop.The park provides 70 non-electric camping sites that are available year-round. There are 18 miles (29 km) of hiking trails, including 8 miles (13 km) of mountain bike trails. The trails connect to the Superior Hiking Trail.The rustic style resources in Gooseberry Falls State Park were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1934 and 1941. The structures are notable for their stone construction, using red, blue, brown, and black granite. The designs were supervised by the Minnesota Central Design Office of the National Park Service and construction was supervised by two Italian stonemasons.

A must stop if you're in the area. Great place to stretch your legs and cool off on a hot day by splashing in the water. You can climb all over the falls, which makes it a perfect spot for older kids or kids at heart. I've stopped here multiple times with vans full of teens and practically had to drag them out of the park.

There are beautiful hiking trails and more falls that aren't on the main path so they aren't as crowded. On the trails there are primitive camping sites. A beautiful part of Minnesota!
