Hooper is a city in Weber County, Utah, United States, first called Muskrat Springs and later Hooperville for Captain William Henry Hooper, an early Utah delegate to Congress. The population was 6,932 at the 2010 census, up from the 2000 figure of 3,926. Prior to the city's incorporation on November 30, 2000, Hooper was an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP).
Hooper is part of the Ogden–Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The current mayor is Korry Green.
Hooper was settled in 1854, and become a township in 1997 (about 15 years after a failed vote to incorporate). Over the next several years "it became evident that the township board could make plans and suggestions, but had no official power," so a vote to incorporate passed on May 2, 2000, with the city being officially incorporated on November 30, 2000.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 11.7 square miles (30.3 km2), of which, 11.5 square miles (29.9 km2) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.4 km2) of it (1.45%) is water.
Fremont Island in the Great Salt Lake is included in this city's boundary. On March 30, 2007, Glenn Barrow became the first Hooper mayor to visit the island in the city's brief history.
As of the census of 2000, there were 3,926 people, 1,150 households, and 1,013 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 340.2 people per square mile (131.4/km2). There were 1,177 housing units at an average density of 102.0 per square mile (39.4/km2).
