"Gooseberry falls state park MN" Gooseberry Falls State Park by EllenH

In our travels across the United States we generally camp in state parks. Our assement of a state has come to be based on how nice their parks are. One of the very nicest state parks we have ever stayed in was Gooseberry falls state park, in Two Harbours MN on the shore of Lake Superior.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful and interesting camping
  • Cons:Mosquitoes
  • In a nutshell:Awesome place to spend the night and some time while traveling

    Unusual name for a park, wondered if gooseberries grew there, used to have them in my garden. We like the national parks too, just had a great stay in one at the Warrumbungles, another unusual name!

    What a great state park! Gooseberry Falls looks very nice. Northern Minnesota is a place I hope to visit someday...

    Nice to see more camping tips. What's the average price for a basic campsite in USA?

    Why do they call it Gooseberry Falls?

    Lovely place, I see. Thanks for sharing. Well, the best thing I discovered in the USA were: people and national + a few state parks I visited.

    We loved Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse when we were there in May. We also camp often in state parks too. We'll look forward to reading more of your pages.
