It's nice to see old mill ruins, you can get a view of it, but only from the boardwalk about 60' above the mill, I didn't see any way down to get a better view. Photos show what it looks like from above. Looks like judging from the stone work on the mill and the dam at Mirror lake that... More

my review is not so much on the photo at the top of the page which is of the Mitchell Mill located below the Mirror lake dam but of this review page. This is not "The Old Mill" which is somewhere else. It is not a restaurant or a dusty old working mill and they don't sell anything. The name,... More

The State of Arkansas brags about it's being the "NATURAL STATE." This area of the state, while very much 'natural,' has enough quality, man-made improvements, to make your hiking, viewing, fishing, picnicking, snoozing, dreaming and just plain having an invigorating time, very easy indeed ! And yet, you won't lose the feel of being in the great outdoors. Wildlife is... More

Fishing, walking on the wooden pathway to discover the secrets hidden in the forest from ages past. Sunshine and waterfalls, an eerie emerald lake that makes the viewer feel immediate serenity. A must see.

Very nice place to eat. Large portions and the food is very good. Get there early as lines form pretty quickly. Service is great.

It was an interesting visit but we felt it was a bit limited in what it had to offer. The mill itself was not operating. The staff were very good and friendly and the goods on sale were very reasonably priced. The restaurant was on the top floor, which was a little awkward but the prices were fair and the... More

Loved the Old Mill. It was Educational and Fun. Lots if dust but that is expected in a Mill. Lots if fun educational things to do in Mt Veiw and go by Marie's and eat or get you some ice cream!!

The mill itself was closed as it was too early in the season but the surrounding scenery was stunning. Great hiking trail.
