Overview

Gooseberry Group Campground is located on an aspen-covered hillside above Gooseberry Reservoir, at an elevation of 8,500 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing and canoeing on the small reservoir and exploring area trails.

Natural Features:

The campground lies within a grove of aspens that is dotted with mature fir trees, in a valley high on the Wasatch Plateau. Some campsites are sunny with little tree cover, while some have ample shade. Sagebrush, grasses and summer wildflowers fill the scenic valley.

Recreation:

Gooseberry Reservoir, which is visible from several sites, offers good cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing, as well as canoeing. The Great Western Trail runs near the campground, offering excellent opportunities for hiking, biking and off-road vehicle riding.

Facilities:

The campground offers group campsites equipped with picnic tables and fire rings. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Garbage collection facilities are not available, requiring visitors to pack out all trash.

A well-maintained dirt road leads to the campground, providing relatively easy access for cars and RVs alike.
