Our adventure to Mt Mitchell State Park was nothing short of the perfect experience. The
well maintained campground has sites with long-range mountain views. There are also wild flowers in multiple colors all around the campsites, roadsides and hiking trails; and many are taller than...More
There were 3 adults and 3 children ages 5 to 8 in our group. We started by eating at the restaurant, then went hiking to the top of Mt. Mitchell. The food was great and we enjoyed hanging out (on the patio) at the restaurant....More
Our family of five enjoyed the short hike and learning about Mt Mitchell. It was very cloudy when we arrived, but by being patient, we enjoyed some amazing views. We saw a few people turn around when they saw how cloudy it was. I recommend...More
This state park is the only way to access the highest point on east coast. At almost 6800 feet high, the temperature is a good ten degrees cooler than the lower elevation. The views along the narrow and winding roads are fantastic. There is a...More
The views are breathtaking. We were driving along the Blue Ridge and intended to stop at the restaurant which was excellent. Only hiked the trail which led to the observation platform. The views were incredible. Nice gift shop, a little museum, and small stand serving...More
It was our first time to Mount Mitchel, and the day we were there it was about 20 degrees cooler at the top, so I was happy to have a jacket with me. You park and walk the final 400 yards to the top. The...More

It’s a normal road, you can drive right up and park IF IF IF the roads are open (much of the Blue Ridge Pkwy closes in winter especially during snowy weather. Go to the Mt Mitchell /NC State Park/ Blue Ridge websites to find a roa report or a number to call. And IF IF IF the parking lot at the top is full during busy summer months, you may have to park at the visitor/information center and walk up , but it’s not too far and good to actually get a bit of a hike in. In nice weather, it is beautiful to take a picnic down the trail from the top to an open bald area , if you can hike.
