Adventure awaits on the Kickapoo

This area is gorgeous. The Wildcat State Park has great campsites and awesome trails through the bluff. Book a canoe/float/kayak trip with Drifty’s to get the full experience!

Great Trail

Nice little trail with some decent incline towards the middle. Wish it was a little longer but still nice.
