Lake Mitchell

Lake Mitchell is the second oldest lake on the Coosa, having been completed in 1923. It is also the shortest lake at only 14 miles and the smallest lake at only 5,850 acres with 147 miles of shoreline. The west bank of Lake Mitchell is fairly developed and part of Chilton County. The east bank of Lake Mitchell is fairly undeveloped and part of Coosa County. Major tributaries to Lake Mitchell include Hatchet, Weogufka, Walnut and Yellow Leaf Creeks. Lake Mitchell Home Owner’s and Boat Owner’s Association is a partner group of ours on this lake and we encourage you to join them if you have a place on Lake Mitchell.
