Spring Mill State Park, Mitchell

State Park
Spring Mill State Park offers a powerful illustration of the link between the natural and cultural worlds. The water flowing from several cave springs led to the founding of an industrial village in the early 1800s. Pioneer entrepreneurs took advantage of a constant water source that never froze, using it to power several gristmills, a wool mill, a saw mill, and a distillery. In turn, pioneer settlers shaped the landscape around the village, clearing land for agriculture and timber.

Visitors have an opportunity to hike on any of the Parks eight graveled hiking trails or bike on the 2 mile mountain bike trail.

Spring Mill has 187 Electric/water camp sites and 36 primitive sites available that visitors can reserve. The park also has Spring Mill Inn with comfortable rooms, an indoor-outdoor pool for inn guests and a restaurant that is open to all.

Picnicking, hay rides, a nature center and an Olympic sized swimming pool are also available.

All park facilities have seasonal operations so be sure to contact the park for current operating hours.
