Stayed here for only one night so we could visit the Corn Palace. It was a good stop for us. Right on the lake, friendly and efficient management, level sites of varying sizes. Ours was a long pull through, with plenty of space for our 38' motor home and toad. Some sites were pretty close together, and designed for small rigs. Bathrooms were clean. Convenient location with easy in-out. Plenty of services nearby. We would stay here again for a night or two if passing through. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is right on a lake and, while we didn't get a chance to use it, it seemed easily accessible and fun to be on.

This is a municipal campground with roads, while easy to navigate, can be a bit tight with a few low hanging branches which high-profile rigs need to watch. Surprisingly quiet over the July 4th weekend. Manager extremely nice! We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

We had to move the picnic table just to be able to back into our site. There were numerous tents camping all together just across from our site and the quiet hours were not enforced. When a fifth wheel parked beside us his slides were extremely close to ours. We would not stay here again. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

We were here for a one nighter. We were able to remain hooked up in the long pull thru. The site was level and shaded with some grassy area and a picnic table. We used the laundry room which was clean and well priced. There was adequate cable tv which was good because there are many trees which would block our satellite. The park is directly behind a motel and so you have too look carefully to find the drive in. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

An older, well maintained park. Owners were friendly and helpful. Close to the freeway, but amazingly quiet. Sites were level and gravel. The pull-thru's were very long. Very nice. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Manager was friendly and helpful. The park is excellent. I'd stay here again. This is a city park, so it gets used by local folks too. There was traffic noise. The park is well maintained, mostly paved but some gravel sited. We got a site high above the lake, a very nice spot. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

The people were very nice and this was a fine campground for us to use as we passed through Mitchell. It is very convenient to local attractions. The sites are very close together, but we had enough space to sit outside. It seemed to be a very family friendly place and the bathrooms were fine. The only negative comment I would make is that quiet hours were not enforced and it was a bit loud in the campsite next to ours. We would stay again. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely park on lake, convenient to the Corn Palace. Grocery store and other shopping within 1/2 mile; Walmart not far away. Basic rate is $15, with add-ons for electricity, water, sewer, cable, which brings it to $24. Cable is adequate. Could only get wi-fi by sitting outside the office (which was closed most of the time as far as I could tell), but warning: the mosquitoes will carry you away! Bring lots of bug repellent. Water pressure was poor most of the time. Only a few sites have 50 amps - we had to settle for 30 because we needed a pull-thru. Not a lot of big-rig spots. Bathrooms were clean but typical state park-type, not a lot of privacy for the showers. Didn't see the laundry. Only a few other rigs in the park, so it was very quiet. We would probably stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife and I stopped here for an overnight stay and found this place to be way too small, cramped, tight, or any other way you want to describe tiny sites and campground. The site next to us used their sewer hook-up, which we did as well, but the bad part is their sewer connection was right outside our door and next to our picnic table. The noise of the kids, cars on the road right outside the campground and ALL the bugs and the small sites made me write my first review for any campground we have ever visited. This is a place I can not and will not recommend to anyone ever. The only reason I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 is for the inexpensive $15.00 per night, $4.00 electric, $1.00 water and $1.00 sewer fees. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was nicer than expected. We had site 15, which is the only one with a view of the lake. We stayed on a Monday night so it was very quiet. Nice playground for the kids. We didn't use the shower facilities because they were not very private. I would have rated this campground a 9 but there was a lot of traffic noise and the train woke me up several times during the night. We would stay here again if traveling through Mitchell. The price included water and electric, and a bundle of firewood. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pricing is $15 for a site, $4 for electric, $1 for water, $1 for sewer, $3 for cable plus 8.5 percent tax. No senior discount. As mentioned before, sites are somewhat tight, but paved with nice grass between them. It was extremely crowded with kids all over on the weekend here. Verizon broadband was good. We would come back but would time it so it was during the week. Campground is north off exit 330, 3 miles to second traffic light then left. It is only a couple of blocks down on the left and just before the lake. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park on the lake. Spacing is a bit close together for some RV's, but level. We didn't have any problems. Would return again. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is ideally located on a beautiful lake with ample trails, and swimming and boating locations. The sites are close to each other and on weekends rather crowded. Nonetheless, the campground occupants are well behaved and things get quiet during the specified hours. Two thumbs up. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is run by the city. It has beautiful views no matter where you are in the park. We overlooked Lake Mitchell. The cable TV was tremendous. The restrooms are marginal. We would definitely return because this park is a gem. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground is clean and the electricity and water are good. The water pressure is high so you may want to use your pressure reducer. The spaces can be a bit close together for a noncommercial park. There was adequate room however. Lots of trees and a nice playground for our grandkids. Plenty of room for our toad in front of the coach. The park hosts were friendly. The lake is beautiful. We would stay here again in the future. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.
