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.
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.
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.
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.

Gooseberry group site is a pretty nice area. It’s located just 5 minutes from the lake, which can be seen down the hill to the north. In the early morning deer frequent the meadow between the sites and the lake. Even had a few doe right in the sites!
Each site has fire pits and tables, perfect for large group camping. Spigot water is also available for drinking and washing.
Easy access is also another bonus for these sites. You don’t need a truck or suv to get there. The average car does just fine :)
