Mount Mitchell State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Mitchell is the king of the East. Standing at 6,684 feet, this is the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. And as you would expect, the campground is as lofty as the mountain itself. Sitting just over a mile by road below the summit, it offers some of the most stunning views around. The sites are what’s known as walk-in sites and require a short uphill walk to get to.

They are very well spread out and private, but the wind still whips through this small, cozy campground. Between the wind and the elevation, Mount Mitchell tends to be colder than most
other campgrounds, so keep this in mind when you’re packing your gear for this trip."
