There's a great hands-on tour. Just make sure it will be open. The view is really great. Worth the trip.
This is a picturesque place especially during the winter or during the fall when the trees show their colors. Try to catch the Mill when it is operation on special events. Tours are available inside the mill and you can actually watch wheat being milled. During the tour you may be offered a free bag of ground wheat.
Beautiful historical buildings and beautiful scenery are in abundance. Rumor has it that John Wilkes Booth lived out his final days there and is buried there. But those are just rumors.........aren't they?
We live in Muscatine, and frequently visit Wildcat Den State Park and the Pine Creek Grist Mill. Although we have toured the grist mill several times, I always find it interesting!

Across the water from the mill, there's a pretty place for a picnic. The mill itself is very sweet, too, and you can wade in the water.
a river runs through it and at one time it cranked out a lot of corn meal, I'll bet. An old bridge allows walking to the other side of a free flowing creek. Clean restrooms.
The grist mill should be part of a trip to Wildcat Den State Park. Make sure to check out the mill's website to time your visit around when it will be open and giving demonstrations. There is a swimming hole next to the mill, and a short drive takes you to the state park where you can hike for hours... More
