Came over here from split rock state park and was surprised to find such a beautiful park. Definitely worth the drive over if you're in the area.

Free and easy to access by foot, but not handicap friendly. I have to say more words to get this to post so I am wasting my time doing so.

Easy walk to the Falls on a paved path. There are 3 different falls all worth seeing. Our dog loved the area as much as we did.

I had a dog with me. He, too, enjoyed the walking paths. There were places to sit along the way in order to take in the beauty.

Gooseberry Falls and the surrounding park are incredibly beautiful. It's not just one section of falls, as you walk uphill, which is an easy walk from the visitor center, you pass several falls. Two of the falls are very large and the others are smaller,...More

We visited on a Saturday, which is probably why it was so crowded. I would suggest a week day instead. The walk to the falls area is easy, paved, steps and boardwalks to each level. It was difficult to get a picture of the falls...More

Such a beautiful place to walk/hike around and take pictures. The falls are beautiful and the area is so clean. We were there after the building closed but it looked very clean and neat.

This park never fails to show us something new. Our first time there in the fall where the waters where much higher than in the summer. It was raining and we still spent a couple of hours exploring!

The easy answer is this: the highest levels would be after a significant rainfall. I don't think the water flow is controlled by a dam upstream. Sorry I can't be of more help. Call the visitor center for a realistic answer... More
