Grab the cardboard and duct tape and put your thinking cap on for William Mitchell State Park's 7th Annual Day on the Canal! This is a family friendly event that offers a little something for everyone; including an arts and craft show, delicious food provided by the North American Snow Festival committee and a visit from Smokey Bear and his firefighting friends (pending on the fire season). Not to mention the Cardboard Boat Regatta!
Sandy beaches are available in the campground and in the day-use areas.
There are boat launch facilities on Lake Cadillac and Lake Mitchell which allow easy access to water sports and fishing activity.
Lakes Mitchell and Cadillac are noted as fine walleye fisheries. The 1,150-acre Lake Cadillac is an extremely popular attraction and anglers can expect good catches of perch, walleye, panfish and bass. The quarter-mile canal that connects the two lakes is a popular place for children to shore fish in the park, and in the evening, many fish for bullheads.
