Mount Mitchell State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Bring warm clothes on your trip to Mount Mitchell. The rarefied air up there more resembles Canada than the South. The flora and fauna follow suit.

Luckily, in 1915, then North Carolina Governor Locke Craig recognized the special character of this mountaintop and made it North Carolina’s first state park. Now, with a tent-only campground and some superlative highland scenery, Mount Mitchell State Park is a Southern Appalachian highlight."
