There are a few places in the world that still stand apart from the ordinary. Rising more than a mile high, surrounded by the gentle mist of low-hanging clouds, Mount Mitchell State Park is one of these extraordinary places.

In the crest of the timeworn Black Mountains lies the summit of Mount Mitchell, at an elevation 6,684 feet, it is the highest point east of the Mississippi. For those who ascend this mighty peak, what looms on the horizon is a feast for the eyes – breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, rolling ridges and fertile valleys. Forested and forever misty, 1,946-acre Mount Mitchell State Park provides you with some of the most tranquil moments you'll ever experience.

We also have a seasonal restaurant and concessions/gift shop, both open May - Oct. Please check the website to verify dates and hours.
