Wildcat Bluff Park:

Named after its geologic features, the stunning Wildcat Bluff reaches 860 feet above sea level rising from the lazy Cedar River in northeastern Benton County.  This recreation area provides the ultimate experience for campers, anglers, river users, and nature explorers. This park offers winding trails and a great deal of exploration from summertime camping and disc golfing to the fall and springtime mushroom hunting and hiking.

Wildcat Bluff Recreation Area is home to a challenging 18 Hole Disc Golf Course.  Visitors from across the region marvel at the impressive and beautiful course, nestled high above the Cedar River, and enjoy the scenic features of the course.  Plan a weekend camping-disc golf trip soon at Wildcat Bluff!
