Gooseberry Falls DNR

Visited here in 2006. This park is extremely popular. Even when I stopped here once in the winter the place was overflowing with people. The waterfalls are all very pretty and the trail to the Fifth Falls is worth the hike. There is also the picnic area with the ancient lava flow that is quite fun to walk around. There are many other trails in the park as well.

Camped here in 2014. Stayed at #39 which was pretty nice. None of the sites were terrible from what I saw, and they were (I assume) redoing some sites or putting new ones in when I was there. This visit was another trip just out to the fifth falls and the main waterfalls. It was a gloomy time there so most of these photos are still from 2006.
