The Mitchell River offers scenic beauty, wildlife habitat, and a variety of recreational opportunities including hunting, fishing, canoeing, and tubing the river.
The Mitchell River, like all rivers, does not maintain its course within political boundaries of towns and counties. Therefore, protection of this special resource is the responsibility of everyone. The upper portion of the Mitchell River was designated an Outstanding Resource Water (ORW) in 1988 by the State of North Carolina. This distinctionn, North Carolina's highest water quality designation, was given to the upper Mitchell because of its excellent water quality; with no significant impacts from pollution. This occured because people who value this remarkable river have been good stewards in maintaining its clean water quality.
The On the Mitchell newsletter tells how local groups and landowners are working together to protect this unique and speical river.
