Mabel is a small town surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, streams and rich farmland.
Each season, mother nature brings something new and exciting to the area. Spring allows for biking, walking, watching the trees and flowers bloom and of course fishing. Sitting in a valley, there are many streams and creeks where fisherman can bait their hooks and enjoy the day. Summer lets locals and visitors spend time with family and friends with ample camping in the area. Fall is always busy with hunting. Hunters from all over “big city” Minnesota, head down to Mabel to take in the beauty and wildlife. Winter allows for men, women and children snowmobilers to cruise around the gorgeous white snow covered trails kept groomed by local snowmobile clubs.
With a K-12 school in one location, our education is second to none!! A person can always find time to enjoy many area celebrations including our own 50s & 60s Days in early August and Hesper-Mabel Steam Engine Days, the weekend after Labor Day. An advantage of the small town is having such a laid back feeling. However, for those who need that big city feel, Mabel is only 24 miles from Decorah, IA, 40 miles from La Crosse, WI and 60 miles from Rochester, MN.
