Wildcat Den State Park is a great place for a family to “get away from it all” for a weekend or a family vacation. The campground has 28 campsites and non-modern rest room facilities. Advance campsite reservations can be made online through the park reservation system. Half of the campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Camping is also available at Fairport Recreation Area.
One of the major features of Wildcat Den State Park is its trail system. Trails wind through a variety of terrain and lead to such fascinating sites as “Steamboat Rock,” “Devil’s Punch Bowl,” and ” Fat Man’s Squeeze.” The beautiful bluffs and rock outcroppings provide spectacular views to hikers.
Wildcat Den State Park is one of the most unique in Iowa, combining natural beauty and solitude, preservation of historical structures, trails, camping and picnic areas for recreational use.
