Wildcat Den State Park
Along the Mississippi River in Muscatine County Wildcat Den State Park showcases miles of hiking trails, rock formations and several historic structures. The signature building at Wildcat Den is the 1848 Pine Creek Gristmill and Pine Mill Bridge. Built in the mid-1800s, the Pine Creek Gristmill stands as a living museum to the milling processes of more than a century ago. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, the Mill and its nearby bridge are fully accessible to visitors...looking to see a piece of history in an Iowa state park. The Pine Creek flows past the Grist Mill…under the bridge...and beyond the borders of Wildcat Den State Park…merging with the Mississippi River only a few miles downstream. All making Wildcat Den a signature destination to explore Iowa by Air.
