Camping at Wildcat Mountain

Wildcat Mountain State Park is just a few miles outside of Ontario, Wisconsin. It sits high on top of a hill. Site 14 and its neighboring sites are the best to get if you are camping in a tent. They are in a little cove that is rather private. I booked a site and encouraged others to do the same months ago. So - the big weekend was here, August 17-19. Me, K1 (wife) and K2 loaded the crap and made the drive south and east. Kurt drove separately and arrived later on Friday. Tom decided to cancel out because rain was expected all weekend.

Friday was great. We arrived at 2-ish, set up one of the tents and went out for a 30 mile ride. We went to places like Dell and near Cashton on roads that are ideal for cycling. Its hilly and challenging, but scenic and we ride past a lot of Amish farms.

We had a nice meal, fire and put away a lot of wine on Friday night. We were joined by a stray cat too. The rain did arrive Saturday and it rained all day. Knowing the forecast, we packed up just before the rain started and made the slow and lazy drive home. We had coffee in Pepin and shopped in Stockholm.
