Discover Mitchell

There’s much more to Mitchell than just the Corn Palace and the city’s other tourist stops. Following are some choices for family and adult fun.

Golfing: The city has two top-notch 18-hole golf courses, Lakeview Municipal and Wild Oak. Lakeview, alongside Lake Mitchell, is considered one of the top municipal courses in the state. Wild Oak features nine holes alongside Firesteel Creek and nine newly added holes on higher ground.

Bike trails: An aggressive program of bike-trail construction is under way in Mitchell, adding to the many trails already in the city. One of the most popular paths is the Dry Run Creek segment, which stretches west-to-east through much of the city alongside Dry Run Creek and many wooded areas.

Lake Mitchell: Besides the obvious boating and fishing options at Lake Mitchell, which is in the northwest corner of the city, there are also public beaches, parks and trails around the lake. Kiwanis Woodlot Park is especially popular, and there are hiking and mountain-biking trails that begin from there and offer lake views.

Aquatic Center: One of Mitchell’s jewels is the newly constructed Outdoor Aquatic Center, a multi-million-dollar family friendly facility featuring zero-entry play areas for small kids, thrilling water slides for older kids, a lap-swim area, plenty of shady spots to rest and concessions.

Parks: Mitchell has a fantastic park system, the pride of which is Hitchcock Park. Within the park you’ll find the Outdoor Aquatic Center, a bandshell, a playground, a baseball diamond, a gazebo and lots of places to picnic or rest.
