Overview

Gooseberry Reservoir Campground is located in a scenic mountain valley in an open meadow next to Gooseberry Reservoir. It is situated at an elevation of 8,400 feet. Visitors enjoy canoeing and fishing on the small reservoir and exploring area trails.

Recreation

The reservoir offers good cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing, as well as canoeing. It is open to hand-powered watercraft only, and no boat ramp is available on the lake.

The Great Western Trail runs next to the campground, offering excellent opportunities for hiking, biking and off-road vehicle riding. Mammoth Guard Station is located just one mile south.

Facilities

The campground contains several standard RV sites with long parking spurs that easily accommodate large RVs. Vault toilets are provided, but no water or garbage service is available. A well-maintained dirt road leads to the campground, providing relatively easy access for cars and RVs alike.

Natural Features

The surrounding mountains are dotted with aspens, fir trees and sagebrush, but the campground has no trees and no shade. Each site has a nice lake view. Grasses and summer wildflowers cover the valley.
