“Wild Cat Den Grist Mill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

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 Scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

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?

“Great history and a nice park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

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! There is also a one-room schoolhouse on the property, which is fascinating--especially since I am a teacher. This is a great place to bring kids or just to get away from it all. Wildcat Den also has some awesome hiking trails, which offer beautiful views--hard to imagine these views in the cornfields of Iowa.

“Take your camera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

They were not open for tours when we were there but we got some very nice pictures. It is hard to find so use a navigation unit and ask for directions.

“History along the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Here's a place you can not only have an in depth look at industrial and agricultural history, you can also cool your feet in the river, have a picnic, and take a trip to yesteryear by browsing through the one-room school house also on the grounds of this park. The 3-story wooden mill is full of artifacts and photos and the small gift shop is great for wooden toys. Make sure you read the story about the great flood and how one man survived by tying himself to a wooden beam, or the story about the man who was killed by his son-in-law when they young man came to claim is children from a philandering wife The one-room school house has graduated sized desks you can sit in, old text books you can browse (remember Dick and Jane and their sister Sally?), or ring the school bell. There's a great bridge over the river for playing Pooh Sticks (if you don't know this game - read Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne). Don't forget your camera as this place has a variety of photo opportunities.
