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 7,218 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).
Although settled in 1854, the community did not become a township until 1996 (about 15 years after a failed vote to incorporate). However, 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 finally 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.
The current mayor of Hooper is Mayor Korry Green.
