Family campground

The family campground at Wildcat Mountain State Park is on top of the mountain, a short hike from the popular overlook of the Kickapoo River valley. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The campground has flush toilets, showers and a dump station. There's a campground host during the summer. Pets are allowed in the campgrounds on a leash no longer than 8 feet long and must be kept under control.

Cart-in campsites

There are 20 cart-in campsites at Wildcat Mountain adjacent to the family campground. Park your vehicle in a lot for your cart-in site, we supply the cart, you load your gear and travel on foot no farther that 400 feet to a campsite off the beaten path. Some of these popular sites are under a pine stand and others are in hardwoods. There is no electricity at these sites. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. There is a drinking fountain and vault toilet in this camp area and it is within walking distance of the shower building.

Horse campground

There are 24 sites for equestrians available northeast of the park office. All 24 sites can be reserved. The campground has picnic tables, fire rings, drinking water, vault toilets, a corral, hitching posts, parking pads, loading ramps and a large parking lot. The horse campground is open May 1 to Nov. 14 annually.

Tether poles are provided at each campsite. Please bring your own tethering ropes, as none are available at the park. Please contact the park office for information about the use of fencing or other types of restraining devices.
