Wildcat Mountain State Park Current conditions

Wildcat Mountain State Park is open. The park has reopened following clean up from severe storms and flooding that impacted the area. There are a couple campsite and trail closures still in place. The Green and Orange Horse Trails remain closed at this time, as well as campsites 207-209 in the horse campground. (updated 9/13/18).


A state trail pass is required for anyone age 16 and older to use the horse trails. Trail passes are available at the self-registration station in the day use parking lot. For your safety, please remain on designated horse trails [PDF].


Due to low temperatures below freezing forecasts for at least the next week, all drinking water fountains in the campground and picnic areas, and the RV dump and fill station at Wildcat Mountain have been shut down. Drinking water will be available near the front door of the park maintenance building for the rest of the year. The flush toilet and shower building will remain open at this time.

All campers must register/check-in at the park office before setting up camp. Campsite reservations are accepted May 1 through October and are highly recommended for weekends and holidays. Reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance. To make reservations, please call 1-888-947-2757 or make them online.


The upper picnic area shelter and the amphitheater are reservable. Contact the park office for information on availability and reservations.

Day use areas and shelters are carry-in, carry-out and do not have trash or recycling receptacles. Visitors must carry out their trash and recyclables so please plan accordingly and bring adequate bags/containers to enable you to take your trash and recyclables with you. We encourage visitors to use reusable containers and minimize garbage.

Visitor Center

If the office is closed, the self-registration station is located next to the front door. Visitors may purchase vehicle admission stickers at the visitor center self-pay station (check or cash). If you purchase an annual pass at a self-registration station, it will be mailed to you. Please write legibly and fill out the information completely.
